Robert and Mary Ann (Schinke) Kauffman of Kent marked their 55th wedding anniversary recently.
The two were married Nov. 16, 1957, at the First Christian Church in Ravenna, by the Rev. Leslie Bowers.
Their children are Kim (and Bob) Balint of Marlboro, Douglas (and Stephanie) Kauffman of Columbus, and Penny (and Paul) Young of Cuyahoga Falls.
The Kauffmans have four grandchildren -- Jordan, Julia, April and Daniel -- and four great-grandchildren -- Tyler, Koty, Hailey and Wyatt.
Robert has worked at Linens and More in Akron for 27 years. Mary Ann retired in 1995 from Resident Service at Kent State University, where she worked for 10 years.
They shared a celebration dinner with their family at home in Kent, hosted by their children.
Mary Ann also celebrated her 80th birthday on their anniversary. Her daughter and son-in-law, Penny and Paul Young, took her on a recent cruise to the Bahamas as a birthday gift.
