Milo and Jean Milfs, of Langley, will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary next month with family and friends.

The couple married on March 6, 1953, in Albuquerque, N.M. They moved to Washington to be with their children and grandchildren 23 years ago when Milo retired from being a professor at Cal State University.

The couple have two children, Linnea Martin, who lives in California, and Dana Milfs, who lives in Langley.

They also have three grandchildren, Kristen, Patrick and Miles, and three great-grandchildren.

Milo and Jean’s long-lasting love and their commitment to their family have kept them happily married.
