Sidney and Toby Brenner celebrate 75th anniversary 


Sidney Brenner and Toby Lerman were introduced at a wedding, by a mutual friend. On their first date, Sidney proposed. They were married the next year, on June 15, 1947 in the midst of a bus strike.

The Brenners, who live in University City, said they feel blessed to have their children, Gary (Terri), Michael (Jo Ann), and Scott (Cheryl); grandchildren, Adam (Kandice), Josh, Damon (Cecilia), Jeremy (Lauren), Corey (Amanda), Clayton (Carlye) and Nicole (Aaron); as well as their “wonderful great-grandchildren,” Ethan and Evelyn, Isabella and Victoria, Max and Ari, Paige, Hunter and Jordan, and Savannah, Brynlee and Olivia.

“Would wish this ‘nachas’ for everyone,” Sidney and Toby said.
