Anniversary- Besta, Albin and Teresa 2

Mr. & Mrs. Albin Besta married 45 years
Mr. and Mrs. Albin Besta will observe their forty-fifth wedding anniversary on Columbus Day, October 12. Miss Teresa Balusek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Balusek of Rossville, became the bride of Mr. Albin Paul Besta, son of Mrs. Rudolph Besta, on October 12, 1909. They were married before the Judge in Topeka, Kansas. They made their home on a farm near Rossville. To this union four children were born, Mrs. John Stum of Delia, Albert Besta of Wamego, Ed Besta of Rossville and Bill Besta of Topeka. Mr. and Mrs. Besta have thirteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
Mrs. Besta was born in Austria and came to this country with her par¬ents when she was three years old. She has two sisters and a brother. Her father was a shoe cobbler in Rossville and had his business and family living quarters in the building now housing Divine's Cafe. Mrs. Besta helped her father and her brother, John Balusek, in their shoe shop when business was rushing.

Albin Besta was the youngest of six children. His father died a few months before he was born and he and his brother and three sisters helped on the lam to support the family. The family home was located about eight miles south of Rossville.

Mr. and Mrs. Besta have spent most of their married life on farms near Rossville, moving to town in 1934, where Mr. Besta did trucking and odd jobs until 1940 when he established his present Rossville Dray Business.

The Bestas lived in a neat little home in the southwest part of town
where they moved in 1942.

Mr. Besta, at 71, and Mrs. Besta, at 68 years, are a devoted couple and Mr. Besta is quick to protect his home, and his “cookie” from anyone or anything which might hurt them.
