Lenci 65th

Nov 19, 2015 783

A Catholic Mass of celebration will be held in honor of Romano and Lida Lenci's 65th wedding anniversary at Holy Rosary Church on Nov. 29. Afterward, the celebration will continue with a family party at Fireside Restaurant. Although their families were acquainted with each other for several generations, Romano Lenci and the former Lida Del Frate didn't meet until after World War II, at a showing of an American movie in Lida's village in Italy.

After a courtship, the couple married in the village of Camigliano, Lucca, Italy, on Nov. 19, 1950. Romano worked for Simmons Mattress and retired from American Motors in 1985. Romano and Lida were the founders/owners of Lenci's Delicatessen from 1965 to 1983. Lida also worked for Vincent McCall. The longtime Kenosha residents are members of Holy Rosary Parish, the Italian American Club, the Moose Club and the Knights of Columbus.
