Mitch and Colette Bennett of Elk Grove Village are celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary this year! The couple met in 1939 in Chicago, and married Aug. 1, 1942. They raised their family just down the street from where they met. Mitch proudly served in the U.S. Marines. The Bennetts moved to Mount Prospect in 1975 and currently live in Elk Grove Village. Mitch and Colette have nine children: Bonnie Lennon of Park Ridge; Carole McFadden of Park Ridge; Joanne Bennett of Park Ridge; Pam (Paul Ahlquist) Bennett of Madison, Wisconsin; Mitch Jr. (Debbie) Bennett of Mechanicsville, Virginia; Mary Kay Kaczmarek of Crystal Lake; Judi (Tom) Sullivan of Arlington Heights; John (Cindy) Bennett of Park Ridge; and Melissa (Mark) Ciske of Mount Prospect. The couple is also proud to say they have 21 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren! The family is celebrating with an open house to congratulate the couple for their love and commitment to each other for over 75 years! The secret to staying married so long? They will tell you... "Never go to bed angry!" As always, we're so proud of you, Mom and Dad!
