Dewey and Evelyn (Calmett) Raski of Davis celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on April 20.
Evelyn is a retired homemaker and Dewey is a retired professor of nematology at UC Davis. Their children are Carole Juergenson of Oakdale, Paul Raski of Dixon, Maya Bodine of Davis and the late Bill Raski.
They have 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, with two more on the way.
“My grandparents are loved by many; they have children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that may not be blood, but are as dear to them as family,” granddaughter Angela Raski said. “They are some of the kindest, most compassionate, loving, faithful, and generous people you will ever meet. Seventy years of marriage is a rare and priceless jewel, and only becoming more so!”
Dewey and Evelyn enjoyed a Mexican-themed fiesta in honor of their honeymoon to Mexico.
