The couple was married at Blessed Sacrament Church in New Rochelle.

The Richelsons and their two children moved from the East Coast to California in 1960. After seven years in Pacific Palisades and 20 years in Moraga, the couple retired to Lake Wildwood.

The Richelsons have two children: Joan Courtney Ferguson of Nevada City and Ryan Richelson of Mountain Ranch.

The Richelsons have lived in Nevada County for 19 years.
