Diane and Frank Chmelik

Sixty years ago, on May 16, 1953, Diane Svec and Frank Chmelik were married in Mary Queen of Heaven Church in Cicero, Ill. Frank retired as an insurance underwriting manager while Diane spent most of her working career as a planning and zoning administrator. Over those 60 years, they have lived in Columbus, Ohio, Rochester, N.Y., Long Valley, N.J., Gauge County, Ohio, and Readington Township, N.J. They have two children and four grandchildren. They currently reside on Callawassie Island. Diane and Frank say the secret to a happy marriage is having a sense of humor.
