Slovakian Lutheran Pastor Albert Dianiska Passes Away


We sadly received news of the sudden death of 60-year-old Pastor Albert Dianiska, who served as Pastor of the Dr. Martin Luther Slovakian church on West 14th St. Dianiska also served as the substitute Pastor of the First Hungarian Lutheran Church on Rawlings Avenue. The funeral service for Pastor Dianiska, who was very respected in both the Hungarian and Slovakian churches, took place in his church and he was laid to rest on Saturday afternoon.

This newspaper clipping must come from Port Clinton, Ohio. He is credited with starting the Slovak Lutheran Church in that city in 1924 in his Sion obituary. (see above)
