Five decades celebrated…


     Steven “Steve” G. Persyn and Elaine Santleben Persyn were united in marriage on August 14, 1971, at St. Louis Catholic Church in Castroville by Monsignor Lawrence “Larry” Stuebben. After a honeymoon in Colorado Springs, they made their home in Leon Valley in San Antonio. Steve opened his own structural engineering firm, Persyn Engineering, in 1984. Elaine worked for insurance companies for 16 years and then joined Steve in his firm in 1985 where they worked side by side for 30 years. The couple moved back to Elaine’s roots in Castroville in 1994. Devoted to family, they were blessed with one son, Steven C. Persyn, daughter-in-law, Regina “Gina” Foegelle Persyn, and three grand-daughters, Ashley Nicole Persyn Griggs, husband Bradley (with a great grand-baby due in mid-November), Regan Estelle Persyn, and Kaylyn Rose Persyn. 

     In celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary, a church blessing and a celebration with family and friends was held at Schattenbol on August 14, 2021, in Castroville.
