50th Anniversary – LaCrosse

Larry-&-LillianLillian (nee Repka) and Larry LaCrosse, of Elyria, celebrated
their 50th wedding anniversary April 11, 2014 during a private
ceremony.

Larry was on temporary leave from the U.S. Air Force when
his cousin and Lil’s friend and co-worker introduced the two of
them. Their long distance relationship, corresponding through
letters and telegraph messages, blossomed. After a year, Larry
asked Lillian’s father for her hand in marriage. The couple
exchanged vows at St. Mary’s Church in Assumption, Ohio and
settled in Niagara Falls, New York for the remainder of Larry’s
military commitment.
