70th Anniversary of Herbert and Peggy Warne
Herbert and Peggy Warne celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on March 11. The couple met while studying at the University of Hawaii, and Herbert proposed to Peggy in Honolulu on Valentine's Day, 1942. The wedding was postponed due to the events of Pearl Harbor, but they married two years later in Normal, Ill. They went on to live in Palo Alto for over 50 years, Herbert later becoming the dean of admissions at the College of San Mateo. Together they have traveled the country and world extensively. They live today near their children in Eskaton Village in Carmichael, Calif., and enjoy using their iPad and playing cards. Their family includes two children, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
