Tamborino, Mr./Mrs. Henry (50th Anniv. - 16 Oct. 1944)
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Tamborino of Colby observed their golden wedding anniversary Monday. At 8:15 o’clock in the morning, a solemn high mass was celebrated for the couple by the Rev. Augustine Borkowski at St. Mary’s Catholic church, which was also attended by their children.
Mrs. Mary Truitt of Perham, Minn., who was her sister’s bridesmaid, and Felix Tamborino of Duluth, Minn., who served as best man for his cousin 50 years ago, also were present.
Mrs. Tamborino wore a black crepe dress, with sequin trim at the neckline, and Mrs. Truitt wore a dress of yellow roses and Mrs. Tamborino also wore a pin that she wore on her wedding day.
A dinner and reception at the Tamborino home followed, with about 75 guests present. The house was decorated with cut flowers and on the table a three-tiered wedding cake, with gold leaf decorations, formed the centerpiece. A small piece of the wedding cake of 50 years ago, which had been preserved, was redecorated for the occasion. Many gifts were received by Mr. and Mrs. Tamborino.
