John Frances Norkoski and Mary Olesiak Norkoski celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary on Nov. 5 with a family dinner at the home of their granddaughter Anna Marcy Norkoski.
They were married in Montesano on Nov. 5, 1938. They have spent all their married years in Grays Harbor and bought their home at 208 G St. in Cosmopolis in 1945 where they still reside today.
John worked as a millworker for different companies and retired from Weyco Pulp Mill in Cosmopolis. Mary was a homemaker. They have two sons, Don of Cosmopolis and Joe of Olympia, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
This is the second big milestone this year for John as he turned 100 in February.
