The key to a successful marriage?

"Don't run away from it," said Dee Stoll, 76, who on Tuesday celebrated her 35th wedding anniversary by renewing her vows at the Willis Tower Skydeck, 233 S. Wacker Drive.

Stoll and her husband, David — who are master chimney sweeps by trade — met in 1976. She was a product designer, and he was in marketing. But when David had a heart attack, the pair left the "stressful" corporate world.
