Title: Susan Pellicore and Mariono Spizzirri Wedding
Description:   Susan Pellicore  was born February 14, 1903 in Chicago, IL, and died January 21, 1976 in Chicago, IL. She married Mariono Spizzirri November 19, 1927 in Saint Bonaventure Church, Chicago IL. He was born May 24, 1903 in Marano Marchesato, and died December 29, 1957 in Chicago, IL.

The day after  graduating from Saint Bonaventure Grade School, Chicago, IL, Sue applied for and was hired as a telephone operator and held that job until her marriage in 1927. Sue was a great help to her mother as the family grew in size (she had 8 younger brothers). One of Sue's many tasks was to take her brothers shopping for shoes and clothing. 

Marion was a men's clothing designer and was employed by Mr. Cefaratti of the Strayhorn Men's Custom Clothiers, located at Michigan and Wacker Drives in Chicago, where men's suits at that time cost about $400, but now, about $ 1000.  One of his customers was Mayor Edward J. Kelly of Chicago.
