Monterey County Herald, CA Aug. 30, 1998
Lewis & Eleanor Fitzsimmons of Del Rey Oaks celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 22 in Monterey. The couple met while attending Salinas Junior College (now Hartnell College), and were married Aug. 22, 1948, at St. Patrick’s Church in Watsonville. They have one son, Michael Fitzsimmons of Burlingame; and two grandchildren. Mrs. Fitzsimmons, nee Rimassa, was born in Pismo Beach and has lived on the Monterey Peninsula since 1920. She graduated from Watsonville High School, and attended Salinas Junior College. She worked in and is still involved with, the agribusiness industry in Watsonville, and was also employed at Seaside High School before retirement. Mrs. Fitzsimmons has been active with the Beta Sigma Phi sorority, the Monterey Choraleers and the Del Rey Oaks Action Group. Mr. Fitzsimmons was born and raised in Pacific Grove in a family of longtime Residents. His grandfather, a justice of the peace, was one of the first settlers in the city. After living in Pacific Grove for 36 years, Mr. Fitzsimmons built his own residence in Del Rey Oaks, which was covered in a Herald article in 1961. He served in the Navy during World War II, and fought in the Okinawa invasion. After the war, he worked as an operating engineer. Mr. Fitzsimmons was involved with the Lighthouse club and Little League, Pony and Babe Ruth baseball leagues. He is a member of the Monterey Moose Lodge. The couple celebrated their anniversary at a party for 80 family members and friends at the House of the Four Winds in Monterey.
