Longtime Nevada County residents Terry and Mary (Hales) Crane will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary today. The couple married on Dec. 8, 1957 and immediately moved into their Nevada City home, where they have remained for the past six decades. Terry moved to Nevada County in 1945 and Mary, a native of Grass Valley, was born at the Jones Hospital. The Cranes have four sons — Brian, Carl, Dennis and Bruce. They also have two grandchildren and two great grandsons. The couple attribute the success of their marriage to a shared affection for strong coffee, classical music, patience and the love of family.
