Ben and Delores Abalos celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on April 12. They were married in Detroit, MI when they were 22 and 18 years old. Ben returned from a tour of duty in South Korea and Delores was employed at Chrysler Corp. Their daughters, Karen and Mary and their families live in southern California. Delores is a volunteer at YRMC-West while Ben and “Dolly” (our rescue) hike the granite basin trails.
