Their children, Holly Scrano of Tully Lake, N.Y.; Jill Ellis of Charlotte, N.C.; Jennifer Leidich of North Ridgeville, Ohio; Marty Nichols of Skaneateles, N.Y.; and Tonja Dodd of Westfield, N.Y., along with their spouses and children, threw a 60th anniversary open house in their parents honor on Saturday, June 17, at the Gerry Rodeo Grounds Conference Center in Gerry with nearly 100 family and friends in attendance.

An early romance video and another family life-in-pictures video, prepared by Dodd, was presented by their eldest granddaughter, Sophia Nichols, at the party.
