Mr. and Mrs. Michael Gazella of Stow are celebrating their golden anniversary.

Michael Gazella and the former Barbara Schweikert were married Oct. 8, 1966, at St. Hilary Catholic Church in Fairlawn.

They were blessed with one son, Paul of Stow. Mike retired from Custom Graphics in Solon after 37 years in the graphic arts field as a salesman. Barb was a stay-at-home mom and volunteer until returning to work once their son finished high school. She retired from Walsh Jesuit High School where she worked in alumni and development. They have enjoyed many years of retirement and their home in Stow.

In celebration the couple plans to renew their wedding vows at Holy Family Catholic Church in Stow and make a return trip to Oglebay where they spent their honeymoon.
