Olson, Mr. and Mrs. Oluf (60th - 27 March 1961)
Mr. and Mrs. Oluf Olson quietly observed their 60th wedding anniversary Monday, March 27, in Neillsville. Mrs. Olson spent part of the day with her husband, who is a patient in the Neillsville Nursing Home, and other members of the Olson family dropped in to wish them a happy anniversary.
The couple was married in 1901 in Colby Township at the farm home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Tuttle. They lived in Medford and Curtiss and spent many years in Abbotsford, where Mr. Olson served as village marshal. He also was section foreman for the Ashland and Spencer railroad for seven years.
The Olson family moved to Neillsville in 1914, living four years on South Hewett Street and since 1918 at their present home on Court Street. Mr. Olson served for many years as custodian of the courthouse and several terms as undersheriff or deputy sheriff of Clark County.
He has been in failing health many months, and has been cared for at Memorial Hospital and more recently at the nursing home.
Mr. and Mrs. Olson have eight surviving children; Francis died in infancy and Robert when 25 years of age. The living children are: Mrs. Ellen Johnson of Wausau, Mrs. David (Barbara) Daniel of Cambria, Mrs. Ewald (Sarah) Schwarze of Greenwood, Gilbert of Rice Lake, Mrs. Albert (Fern) Holt and Kenneth of Neillsville, Mrs. Lowell (Mildred) Dorn of Abbotsford, and Oluf, Jr., of Wisconsin Rapids.
Mr. Olson is 90 and Mrs. Olson is 85.
