Richard and Mary Anne Kilbert of Lordstown celebrated their 50th anniversary on two occasions, a family dinner at Alberini's Restaurant, hosted by their children, followed by a picnic on June 30 at their home, attended by friends and family.
Richard Kilbert and the former Mary Anne Lickwar were united in marriage on April 28, 1962, at SS. Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Church in Warren. Msgr. Sylvester Hladky officiated.
After serving three years in the U.S. Army, Richard retired from the Warren City Fire Department, attaining the rank of captain. While a member of the department, ''Capt. Kilmo'' served as one of the city's earliest paramedics.
