Four generations help celebrate diamond couple
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.
