Portola Valley's Bob and Myrtle Carey celebrate 60 years

Bob and Myrtle Carey of Portola Valley celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary Nov. 21 at the University Club of Palo Alto. Thirty family members and friends attended.

The Careys, who had known each other since childhood, were married Nov. 21, 1947, in their hometown of Chicago. Mr. Carey is a retired chemical and metallurgical engineer. Ms. Carey worked in the Las Lomitas School District and, later, as office manager of Widelinger Associates in Menlo Park.

They are the parents of Robert Carey, Kent Carey, Dawn Schaniel, Glen Carey and Paul Carey; and 10 grandchildren, eight of whom attended the party. Kristen, the 10-year-old daughter of Glen and Lynn Carey, produced a special DVD of her grandparents' lives.

Congratulations, Myrt and Bob! That was a fun party. I am honored to have been part of the story for the last 30+ years.

Here is a rather low-quality video of a vocal performance, featuring granddaughter Kate Carey (daughter of Kent and Theresa) singing soprano/lead, taken during the party. You can see Myrt and Bob's smiling faces at the end.
