Longtime Catskill Mountain area residents Audrey and Joseph Colando celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on Thursday, Feb. 13.
They met after Joe had served in the U.S. Navy during WWII, while Audrey was studying to become a nurse. Their happy marriage has given them two sons: Robert of Pine Hill (married to Kathleen) and Joseph III of Florida (married to Holly), as well as four grandchildren, Nicole (and husband Sean) of California, Katie (and husband Mike) of Florida, Courtney (and husband John) of Fleischmanns, Casey (and wife Sara) of Texas. They also have eight great grandchildren, Tristan, Grace, Quin, James, Callum, Liam, Avery, and Patrick.
Audrey and Joe lived on Kennedy Heights Road in Margaretville for decades. They recently relocated to DeLancey, but still have lots of friends and family in the Margaretville area including Kathleen and Robert Colando who live in Pine Hill, and Courtney and John Fairbairn who live in Fleischmanns.
