The children of Bob and Betty Goodman of Lakeville happily announce the 70th anniversary of their marriage on Sept. 1, 2017.
They met as teenagers when Betty worked at a corner store on Lexington Ave. in St. Paul and Bob lived in an apartment above the store. Bob served in the Navy during WW11 and when he returned home, their love and romance blossomed. They were married Sept. 1, 1947, and over the next 19 years had nine children. Today they have 30 grandchildren and 44 great grandchildren.
Bob retired from BlueCross BlueShield MN and Betty retired from the City of Lakeville.
The Goodman family has been blessed by the sacrifices made and love shown by Bob and Betty. Their anniversary was celebrated with family at a private gathering, but notes of congratulations can be sent to Bob and Betty Goodman, c/o Barb Nylund, 21665 France Boulevard, Lakeville, MN, 55044.
