Fults, Mr./Mrs. Walter (50th Anniv. - 29 May 1955) 

Mr. and Mrs. Walter Fults celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday. In the morning, the entire family attended the Presbyterian church in a body. At the services, a quartet of four grand children sang "The Old Rugged Cross," a favorite hymn of the honored couple. 

At noon a dinner was served at the Edwin Fults home to 34 persons who included the family and some out of town relatives. 

Nearly 120 relatives and friends greeted the couple at an open house from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at their home. Lunch was served from a table spread with a gold cloth and centered with a decorated wedding cake. Other decorations included flowers and candles. 

The honored couple received many lovely gifts which included money, flowers, and cards. Mrs. Fults wore a corsage of yellow roses and her husband wore a yellow carnation. 

Mr. Fults was born Feb. 7, 1880, at Thorp, where he received his education and farmed. His parents were Francis and Laura Fults. Mrs. Fults, the former Myrtle Heagle, was born Jan. 1, 1884, at Seymour to James and Elizabeth Heagle. She received her education at Thorp and taught school there for several years. 

The couple, both members of the Presbyterian church, were married June 14, 1905, in the Methodist parsonage in Stanley. The Rev. A. Soule officiated at the ceremony. 

After their marriage, the couple operated a farm at Thorp until 1927, when they came to Abbotsford, where Mr. Fults was in the bulk and retail oil business and service station until his retirement five years ago. 

The Fultses have three sons, James Fults, Stanley; Edwin Fults, Abbotsford; and Dr. A. H. Fults, Colby; eight grand children and a great grand child. A daughter, Mrs. Kenneth (Mildred) Anderson, died Sept. 20, 1945. 

Relatives and friends who attended the occasion were from McAllen, Texas; Seaport, Mich.; St. Paul, Appleton and Buffalo, Minn.; Menomonie, Cadott, Stanley, Thorp, Eau Claire, Seymour, Augusta, Onalaska, Cable, Withee, Curtiss, Stetsonville, Colby, and Abbotsford.
