A happy milestone today, shared by the couple’s family:
Today, the family and friends of West Seattle residents Carroll and Connie Blackman want to wish them a wonderful 70th wedding anniversary!
Out of this amazing marriage, the Blackmans produced three children, nine grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren (with another on the way), and two great-great-grandchildren.
Having lived most of their adult life in Arizona and California, Carroll and Connie moved to West Seattle in 2007 to be near family. Upon their arrival, they lived in the Diplomat condominiums in the Junction – making friends with their neighbors, Holy Rosary parishioners, and Husky Deli proprietors.
They recently moved to Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights, where they are now making friends with the other residents and sharing their love with great-grandchildren who stop by unannounced for an ice cream bar or cookie. The West Seattle portion of their clan is thrilled to have the opportunity to share this wonderful milestone with them.
Congratulations, Grandma and Grandpa Blackman!
