Mr. and Mrs. Raymond (MaryJane) Rutkowski

MaryJane Sobota and Raymond Rutkowski were married in Transfiguration Roman Catholic Church in Buffalo, New York, on June 10, 1967.

Attendants were Rich Kardach, Adrienne Dados Kerr, Dennis Rutkowski, Marge Picciano, Lorraine Rutkowski Golden, Robert Skurzewski, Janice Perruzini and Ron Picciano.

The reception at the Strand Ballroom featured two meals; one after the wedding, the other in the late afternoon followed by dancing to the music of Big Steve and the Bellares.

In their almost 50 years of marriage, they have traveled extensively, enjoyed hot air ballooning, ziplining, white water rafting in the last few years and are looking forward to more adventures.

Many of these adventures were shared with son Ken, daughters Kathy and Karen, and their families.

Advice to newlyweds: laughing, joking and sharing are keys to a good marriage.
