Russos on their anniversary

Frank and Angie Russo recently, left, and on their wedding day in 1951, right.

Frank and Angie Russo, who live in Thurmont, celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary Feb. 20. Frank married the former Angela Palermo on Feb. 18, 1951, at Sacred Heart Church in Highland Falls, New York, with Father Hugh Devers officiating.

He served in the U.S. Navy on the Coral Sea as an electrician during the Korean War. He worked as an offset pressman and retired from the Government Printing Office in 1980. Angie devoted herself to the care of her children and husband. The couple have four children — Roseann Russo, of Thurmont; Frank Russo Jr., of Bowie; James Russo, of Owings Mills; and Joseph Russo, of Frederick — and two grandchildren.

The Russos commemorated the occasion at home, as they have many special events over the years, surrounded by their loving family.
