Happy 60th Anniversary! Richard and Charmaine (Husack) Blessman will celebrate 60 years of marriage on March 29, 2013. Chicago-born Charmaine met Dick as young students at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and the romance began. In 1953, they were married in Dick's hometown of Havana, Illinois, surrounded by family and friends. They enjoyed living in Western Springs for 53 years, and several years ago they moved to Plymouth Place in LaGrange Park. Their love and commitment is an example to us and to all who know them. We look forward to celebrating many more years of happiness! Love, Marshall, Lee, Kate, and grandchildren Daniel, Tami, Thomas, Benjamin and Elizabeth.
