Four gen­er­a­tions help cel­e­brate di­a­mond cou­ple

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MOSS­MAN sweet­hearts Sal­va­tore and An­gelina Scar­cella re­cently cel­e­brated 60 years of mar­riage.

Four gen­er­a­tions helped cel­e­brate the di­a­mond an­niver­sary at Rydges Tradewinds in Cairns, with Sal­va­tore and An­gelina’s five chil­dren, their hus­bands, wives and part­ners, along with seven grand­chil­dren and seven great­grand­chil­dren, all present.

Also present at the cel­e­bra­tions were John Scar­cella, Sal­va­tore’s brother and best man at their wed­ding and Rose Gus­meroli, An­gelina’s sis­ter and Brides­maid.

Sam and Angie, as they are lo­cally known, were mar­ried on De­cem­ber 1, 1951 at St Au­gus­tine’s Church in Moss­man.

Their par­ents em­i­grated from Si­cily in the 1920s, while both Sam and Angie were born in Aus­tralia.

Sam was born at home in Morseby, near Mouri­lyn, while Angie was born in Moss­man.

Shortly af­ter their mar- riage, Sam and Angie moved onto their cane farm at Miallo where they raised their fam­ily and worked their farm un­til their well earned re­tire­ment ear­lier this year. They now re­side in their new home in Cairns.

Mes­sages of congratulations were re­ceived from MP War­ren Entsch, Prime Min­is­ter Ju­lia Gil­lard, Gov­er­nor-gen­eral Quin­ten Bryce and Her Majesty Queen El­iz­a­beth.
