ANNIVERSARY

Tom and Lois Getzfrid

65th Anniversary

Tom and Lois were married on June 8, 1954, in St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Albion, Neb. St. Michael’s has been the Getzfrid family church for more than 100 years.

Tom and Lois proudly have three children: Mark (Jamie), Greg (Jane) and Jera (Marty); six beautiful grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren, with No. 7 due in July!

They lived in Manhattan Beach, Calif., for 50 years. Since Tom’s retirement in 1991 from McDonnell Douglas, they spent their summers here on the lake at their cabin in Rockford Bay. In 2005, deciding Idaho was where they wanted to live full time, they built a home in Dalton Gardens. This was a great decision, being active in St. Pius X Catholic Church, golfing, Coeur d’Alene Elks and the Hayden Eagles — they have met so many wonderful people and are truly blessed to have such a great family and friends within their lives!

Tom and Lois have traveled to most states in the U.S. and have visited many other countries! They’ve especially enjoyed motor home traveling with close friends since 1970.

Last year for their 64th wedding anniversary, they traveled back to Nebraska, to celebrate in St. Michael’s church where they were married and to be with family and friends.

This year’s celebration was planned by their family and cousins with everyone meeting in Las Vegas!
