CRYSTAL LAKE – Howard and Marilyn Podlesak of Crystal Lake will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary with a family gathering in April.

Howard was employed as an engineering supervisor at GTE (Verizon) before retiring in 1982.

A devoted homemaker, Marilyn also enjoyed many careers as a church secretary, legal assistant and piano teacher.

Howard and Marilyn have three children, Jane (Bill) Stangeland, Jeffrey (Kathy) Podlesak and Nancy (Mel) Meister.
