Hemmy, Mr. and Mrs. Peter (64th - 18 March 1961)


Mr. and Mrs. Peter Hemmy observed their 64th wedding anniversary quietly in their home Saturday.


A few neighbors - Miss Elsie John, Mrs. Carl Serr, and Mrs. Roy Johnson, dropped in for cake and coffee. The family will come later.

Mr. Hemmy is 86 and Mrs. Hemmy is 84.


They were married in Denzer near Prairie du Sac, on March 18, 1897.  In 1900, they came to a farm about a mile and one-half south of Humbird, where they farmed until 1943, when they moved into the village.  Mr. Hemmy has worked in several cooperative movements.  He has been active in civic affairs, serving the Township of Alma (Jackson County) as chairman.  He also served for four terms as Jackson County Assemblyman in the state legislature.  He was chairman of the conservation committee for several years.


Mrs. Hemmy, an able helper, did much to help her husband. 


They have three children: Mrs. Mabel Gasser, Baraboo; Wallace, Mondovi; and Howard of Melrose. They have seven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.  They are still living in their own home and doing their own work.
