Submitted by Terrie Collins |

Larry and Terrie Collins of Lake Wildwood recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary by taking their family on a Mexican Riviera cruise. The Collins met while at Maine Township High School in Park Ridge, Ill. They graduated together in 1958 and were married Oct. 17, 1959. They moved to Simi Valley in 1964 and to Lake Wildwood in 1979. Terrie has been working at Wildwood West Real Estate since 1980, when Bob Nix opened the office and Larry, who is a retired builder, joined her in 1994 — and yes, they are still working full time.

They thoroughly enjoy life with their four sons, nine grandchildren and soon-to-be four more (as oldest son, Larry, will be marrying a woman with four children), and almost five great-grandchildren (one on the way).
