Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Yvinskas

Anthony and Clarissa Yvinskas, long time residents of Fish Lake, Indiana were married 65 years ago on June 26, 1954 at Holy Cross Church in Chicago.

In Thanksgiving, a 65th Wedding Anniversary Mass will be held on Wednesday morning, June 26 at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Fish Lake.

Before moving to Fish Lake, Tony and Clare lived for many years in Brighton Park, a predominately Lithuanian-Polish neighborhood on Chicago's Southwest side. They were active with Immaculate Conception Church and their children all attended Immaculate Conception grammar school. Their five children, Katherine of New Jersey, Anthony of Fish Lake, Deborah of New Lenox, Illinois, Elizabeth of Chicago and Mary of Lafayette, Indiana, along with their spouses and 15 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren plan a few special surprises for their parents. As the kids (who are now in their middle years) often explain, we were blessed to live in a simpler, carefree time and had parents who understood that and let us be kids.

Thanks Mom and Dad! Much love, the gang.
