ALDEN — Mr. and Mrs. Dominic Gorno of Alden and formerly of Grosse Ile, Mich., observed their diamond wedding anniversary on Sept. 5, 2013. They were guests of honor at a weekend celebration on Mackinac Island in September with their children and their spouses and most of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, some traveling from as far away as Utah and South Carolina. They renewed their vows and danced with their family down Main Street.
Dominic Gorno and the former Ginger Green were married on Sept. 5, 1953, at Holy Redeemer Church in Detroit. The groom’s uncle, the Rev. George Joly, performed the ceremony.
Mr. Gorno formerly owned White Star Trucking in Lincoln Park, Mich. Upon his retirement and moving up north, the Gornos became involved in the Antique Company in Traverse City. They opened their own store, Antrim Antiques, in Alden and operated it from 1989-1999. They have lived in Alden for 26 years.
The couple’s children are Dominic (Karen) Gorno III of Brownstown, Greg (Patti) Gorno of Elk Rapids, Daniel Gorno and Jim (Connie) Gorno, all of Bellaire, Mary (Bob) Keedy of Petoskey, Jeff (Colleen) Gorno of Gaylord, Ruth (Michael) Allen of Traverse City, and Dee-Dee Gorno of Beulah. They also have 21 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
