Mary and Wally Krill of Nevada City will celebrate their 67th wedding anniversary on May 2. After a year long courtship, the couple married in 1948 in Oakland.

Following the ceremony, the couple drove to Nevada City — where Wally was raised — for their honeymoon. They stayed at the National Hotel.

Mary was raised in Drumright, Oklahoma, and the couple has lived in Nevada City for more than 50 years.

The couple’s celebration will include touring San Francisco sites they visited while dating in 1947, such as the remains of the Sutro Baths, the Cliff House and Playland at the Beach, where they had their first blind date.

The Krills have three children, eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, most of whom live nearby.
