Lillian (nee Repka) and Larry LaCrosse, of Elyria, celebrated

their 50th wedding anniversary April 11, 2014 during a private


Larry was on temporary leave from the U.S. Air Force when

his cousin and Lil’s friend and co-worker introduced the two of

them. Their long distance relationship, corresponding through

letters and telegraph messages, blossomed. After a year, Larry

asked Lillian’s father for her hand in marriage. The couple

exchanged vows at St. Mary’s Church in Assumption, Ohio and

settled in Niagara Falls, New York for the remainder of Larry’s

military commitment.


Larry and Lil finally moved to Elyria. There, they raised five

children, Pam Tomassi and Greg LaCrosse of Cincinnati, Debra

Goetz of Avon Lake, Shelly Snyder of Phoenix, Arizona and Tim

LaCrosse of Avon. Their family also includes 11 grandchildren,

Bryan and Michele Tomassi, Ryan and Crysta LaCrosse, Austin

and Abbey Goetz, Brenden and Chase Snyder, Sam, Jackie and

Jacob LaCrosse.

Larry and Lil’s children and grandchildren honored them at a

special family vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The

couple will continue their celebration with a trip to Italy! Happy

50th Anniversary!

Your family loves and cherishes you!
