Charlie and Kathy Schaub

Charlie and Kathy Schaub celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on Dec. 29th. The former Kathleen Murphy is originally from Eden Prairie MN and Charlie is originally from St. Louis Park MN. After being stationed here in the Coast Guard, it was decided that Duluth was a great place to set down roots and start a family. Charlie spent many years running a business that decorated downtown Duluth, the Miller Mall, the Mariner Mall, the hospitals and other businesses. He created holiday lighting and animated displays and provided services for many trade shows and conventions throughout the area. He also designed and built many floats for the Christmas City of the North parade and other parades around the Midwest. Years ago, he owned and operated the Tannenbaum Shop, bringing Christmas to the Northland year-round.

After spending many years raising their children, Kathy worked various jobs including Glass Block and UMD to help keep busy. Charlie and Kathy still live in Duluth and are both retired and enjoying time with their 8 children, 18 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. The family is planning a celebration dinner for this milestone anniversary.
