Hansen, Anders & Dorthea (Gold - 3 JAN 1934)

Mr. and Mrs. Anders Hansen of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), celebrated their golden anniversary on Thursday of last week and many of their relatives and friends availed themselves of the opportunity to call at their home during the day and pay their respects and bring them good wishes.

Services were held at the Danish Lutheran Church at which four ministers gave addresses, Rev. Jens P. Andreasen of Luck, Wis., Rev. Carl Rasmussen, St. Paul, Minn., Rev. Stockholm and Rev. Mikkelsen of Withee. There were present more than 150 guests.

Following the services there was served a wedding dinner at the Danish assembly hall, and the decorations were varied and beautiful. One section of the hall was decorated to represent the village of Withee at the time of Mr. and Mrs. Hansen’s coming to that place, more than 30 years ago.

Mr. and Mrs. Hansen are the parents of ten children, eight of whom were present to the golden wedding jubilee. They were Mrs. Ellen Braderson, Cohasset, Minn.; Mrs. Dagmar Norgaard, Oneida, S.D.; Holgar Hansen, Minneapolis, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Jacobson, Minneapolis, Minn.; Rev. and Mrs. Carl Rasmussen, St. Paul, Minn.; Mrs. Carl Andreasen and Miss Margarette Hansen, both of Withee. Other out of town guests were Mrs. Ole Andersen and Mrs. L. Lorentzen, Chippewa Falls; Chris Jensen, Eau Claire; Jens J. Jensen, Loyal; and Mr. and Mrs. Sigred Jergensen, Tyler, Minn.

Mr. and Mrs. Hansen received more than 100 letters and cards congratulating them upon their 50 years of wedded life, besides numerous telegrams. One radiogram from Denmark was also received, via a Wausau station, and then telephoned to them from there.

Mr. and Mrs. Hansen are among Withee’s oldest residents, and for more than 30 years have lived there, both enjoying excellent health until the last few years. Mrs. Hansen now is suffering with failing eye sight, but aside from that she is very well. They have the good wishes of their many friends for many more years of happiness together.
