Michael J. Sr. and Carol A. Tenuto of Claussville, Lowhill Township, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 25, 2019, with family and friends at the VFW, Ocean View, Del.
They were married Aug. 23, 1969, in the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Siena, Allentown. The Rev. Joseph W. Bucolo, cousin of the groom, performed the ceremony.
Mike and Carol have two children: a son, Michael Jr., of Orefield, North Whitehall Township, and a daughter, Ann Marie Higgins, married to Scott, both of Schnecksville, North Whitehall Township.
They have one beautiful granddaughter, Harper.
Carol retired as a registered nurse after working more than 40 years in labor and delivery at Lehigh Valley Health Network and at the Fairgrounds Surgical Center, Allentown.
Michael retired from the Pennsylvania State Police after 30 years of service at the Fogelsville and Bethlehem barracks.
After “retirement,” they also managed the family-owned Rita’s Italian Ice, Bethany Beach, Del., for 10 years.
The couple were honored by their children at a bayside celebration in Delaware.
Many family, friends and members of their bridal party were in attendance for the blessing, dinner and dancing.
A Nor’easter prevented the couple from having the events of the evening take place outside, but the view from inside was amazing.
A fun time was had by all.
