EL couple celebrate 73rd wedding anniversary
Charles and Maxine Brookes of St. Clair Avenue celebrated 73 years of marriage on August 2. They were married at the Columbiana Methodist Church by Rev. Wm. Longsworth in 1948. Other than a four year absence for Air Force duty during the Korean War, the couple called East Liverpool home for over 90 years.
They are the parents of two sons, Atty. Timothy Brookes (Linda) and Atty. Mark Brookes (Reba) of Columbus. There are four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Brookes worked several years in retail sales, capped by 22 plus years with the local TV cable company. Mr. Brookes spent over 30 years with The Review followed by 15 years at Birch Supply.
The bench that appears in the photo was built by Brookes as a gift for their 13th anniversary.
