JOHNSTOWN — Mr. and Mrs. Tom Sigmund of Johnstown have noted their 50th wedding anniversary with a Mass at Our Mother of Sorrows Roman Catholic Church, Westmont, followed by a dinner party with their children and grandchildren.

Mr. Sigmund and the former Mary Joan Grunsky were married June 15, 1963, at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Clairton, Allegheny County.
