Celebrating 65 Years of Marriage!

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Mayor Gary Christenson congratulated Joanna and Herbert “Bob” Goodwin on 65 years of marriage and presented them with a citation on behalf of the City in recognition of their milestone. Married in 1953 when Bob returned from his service in the Korean War, Joanna and Bob have lived in the same Edgeworth home ever since. Joanna and Bob are extremely proud of their four children, four grandchildren and one great grandchild. They very much enjoy spending time with their family celebrating Malden traditions such as St. Rocco’s Feast and Bob particularly enjoys his membership with the Italian American Citizens Club. When Mayor Christenson asked them their secret to such a long and happy marriage they replied you have to “bend, so you don’t break” as the key to their success!
