George and June MoskovitaFamily and friends gathered recently in the back yard of George and June Moskovita's Skyline Avenue home to celebrate the couple's 60th wedding anniversary.

George Moskovita and June Berg were married Aug. 20, 1943 at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Bellingham, Wash., George's hometown. Their first home was in Williamsport, and they have lived in Astoria ever since.

The couple has four daughters, Georgene Swenson of Seaview, Wash., Joy Johnson of Rosburg, Wash., Jo Ann Williams of Scappoose and Kathleen Orcutt of Bellingham; 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, many of whom were present. Guests came from as far away as Santa Fe, N.M.

Many tributes were offered to the couple for their relationships with family, friends and neighbors, and especially for the inspiration and example of their enduring marriage.
