Casiello’s to Celebrate 70th Wedding Anniversary

On May 28, John and Jennie Casiello will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. This amazing milestone will be celebrated with friends and family with a luncheon at Queen Margherita Restaurant in Nutley, New Jersey.

The couple met at the Lincoln Theatre in Passaic and were married in the ‘old’ Holy Family Church on Brookline Avenue in Nutley when John had just turned 21 and Jennie was 19. They honeymooned in our nation’s capital, Washington DC.

Jennie was born and raised in Nutley and worked for NJ Bell in Nutley. John worked for S&S Generator in Passaic, eventually becoming the owner of the company. They had three children; two boys, John and David (both have since passed) and daughter, Karen. They also have seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
