Congratulations to Ollie and Velma Wiseman, residents of Asbury Solomons who will celebrate their 79th wedding anniversary in May. The couple has been officially recognized as the longest-married couple in Maryland - an honor that earned them a special pre-anniversary blessing from Pope Francis. The couple grew up in the same Baltimore neighborhood and were married in 1936 when Ollie was just 19 years old. Click on the link above to read the Southern Maryland News feature.
