Bill and Harriett Terwilliger celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary Christmas Eve.
They were married in front of the Christmas tree in the home of Harriett’s parents in DeKalb, Ill., in 1942.
Long-time residents of Hunting Country, Bill and Harriett celebrated this year with a quiet evening at home with their daughter, Cynthia.
They related their traditional tale of driving into Chicago on a beautiful wintery night with the moonlight gleaming off the snowy fields, staying at the Palmer House and waking up to find out their car had been stolen from the hotel parking lot. This year they are happy to report all of their cars are still in the garage.
