Couple celebrates 75 years of marriage

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Family and friends celebrated the Diamond Anniversary of a happy couple at the Northgate Health Care Facility on Thursday.

Peter and Anna Divergilio exchanged vows 75 years ago, in 1939. There was plenty of cake and refreshments, and a musician even played the Wedding Waltz for the pair.

The couple’s son, Pete Divergilio, said, “My dad used to hang around with my mother’s brother. That’s how it all started. They were probably around 14- or 15-years-old at the time. And they started going out, and eventually got married in ’39.”

The couple has two daughters and a son.
