Members Spotlight - Katica and Gabor Deli

Katica and Gábor Deli - A Hungarian Success Story in Minnesota

The story of our couple started in Hungary in the 60's. At that time both of them were attending, a Physical Education College in Hungary.  Their first meeting was at a gymnastics show, followed soon after by a wedding.
When Katica was carrying their first child, they decided to leave Hungary and move to the US. At that time Gábor had been a member of the Hungarian Gymanstic Team for 10 years and also the photographer of the Dózsa soccer team of Újpest. He was quite successful as a photographer and had also won the Silver Javelin sports photographer prize in 1970. Photography is still a passion for him.
The journey to Minneapolis was by way of an adventurous journey through Yugoslavia and Italy. It was clear where they were to go in the US as Katica had two uncles and an aunt already living in Minnesota. They were subsequently followed by her parents as well.

Katica: We had not even gotten ourselves a decent apartment; even having to live separately for a while after we were first married. When I found out I was pregnant, we decided to leave the country.
Gábor: We got to Italy through Yugoslavia, where we received political refugee status. A few days before the expected date of birth of our, son, we were called and told that we could proceed to America from Rome. When we were approaching New York, the flight circled the Statue of Liberty. So that was how we arrived in the USA at the end of November 1971.
Katica: Although they didn't want me to go to Minnesota because they were afraid that our son would be born, but I really wanted to get there, so we went. Our son waited and was born here in Minnesota.
