In May we celebrated the 71st Anniversary of some very special residents!
HAPPY 71ST ANNIVERSARY!
Michael and Gertrude Novicki met 73 years ago at a friend’s house party. Michael knew immediately that she was the one. They shared the same religion and – just as important – she was a very pretty girl! They both were quite the dancers – enjoying everything from the polka and shotish to the cha-cha and waltz. They courted for two years and were married at St. Cyril Church in Minneapolis. Michael was employed as a machinist at Cornelius Company. The started a family during World War II and raised two girls and two boys. Gertrude and Michael loved to entertain. Their fondest memories were the many holiday celebrations with the delicious home cooked meals and bakery desserts prepared by Gertrude. They often played board and/or yard games. They enjoyed their summers going to northern Minnesota with all the lakes and cabins. They are a very close family. When Michael was asked what the secret is to a 71 year marriage, he replied “I can’t imagine anyone else; I just love her”!
