Kathy (nee Reising) and Ted Litkovitz of Amherst celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Friday, Feb. 5, 2016.
They met at the Turnpike Lanes Bowling Alley in Elyria, Ohio, and were married at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lorain, Ohio, by the Rev. Fr. Timothy Lynch.
Kathy is a graduate of Clearview High School (Class of 1961) and attended Kent State University, majoring in business administration and accounting. She recently retired from public service, after serving as the treasurer of the city of Amherst for 20 years. Kathy also served as a city councilman for six years.
Ted is a graduate of Lorain High School (Class of 1960). He served in the United States Air Force and retired from B.F. Goodrich after a 38 year career with the company.
The happy couple has lived in Amherst for the past 43 years and are long-time parishioners of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Amherst.
They love to spend time with daughters Rebecca Wisniewski and Amy Koncelik (Joseph). Their greatest joys are their grandchildren, Megan and Madeline Fulper and Peter, Ted, and Charlie Koncelik.
In her spare time, Kathy is an active member of many church ministries and enjoys cooking and reading with her two book clubs. She is also a member of the Amherst Historical Society. Ted enjoys a part-time job with the Nordson Corporation as a “blue jacket” driver and is a pen and ink artist with his work displayed at shop downtown Amherst. Ted is also a member of St. Joe’s Players, a church group that puts on a talent show each spring.
Their family thanks them for providing such a wonderful example of a loving and committed Christian marriage. May God continue to bless them both!
