MARENGO – Keith and Nancy Shevel of Marengo will celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary with a garden party accompanied by many friends old and new.
They met when Keith was honorably discharged as a sergeant E-5 from the Marines and resumed his career at Illinois Bell, where Nancy worked.
They were married Sept. 10, 1977, in Niles, with a reception at Raul’s Cantina in Chicago. In 1986, they moved to rural McHenry County and with the help of a few good friends built their log house.
In 1999, both retired from Ameritech after 30 years of service. Keith was a systems technician and Nancy was a telecommunications specialist.
Both love to travel, but there is no place like home. In 2010, they put their property into a Conservation Easement with The Land Conservancy of McHenry County and hope to spend their retirement years restoring their land.
