They were united in marriage Aug. 8, 1964 at St. Paul Cathedral, Pittsburgh. Their wedding reception was held at the bride's alma mater, Chatham College, in the former home of Andrew Mellon.
Carol Heiser worked as a clinical social worker with both mental health and hospice facilities.
As a metallurgical engineer, Steve Heiser was employed most of his career as an executive in the specialty steel tubing industry.
After having lived in several states, they have been residents of Wheeling for the past 30 years.
They are the parents of a daughter, Kristen Heiser, of Cheat Lake, W.Va.
In celebration of this milestone, the couple will expand on their wedding trip, when they toured much of New England.
