Foemmel, Mr. and Mrs. August (Golden –7 December 1961)
Mr. and Mrs. August Foemmel of Rt. 1, Chili, observed their golden wedding anniversary in Neillsville last Saturday, although the actual anniversary date will not arrive until December 7.
All of their children were present for the occasion. An anniversary dinner was served in the Arbutus Café in Neillsville at 6:30 p.m., and refreshments were served at the farm home in the Town of Fremont.
The Foemmels were married in the parsonage of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Marshfield by the Rev. O. A. Hillman. Following the service they drove with team and wagon to their new home - a log shanty which Mr. Foemmel, his brother, Harmon Huntley of Neillsville and others helped to build on the present Foemmel farm. In this one story log shack the couple lived until they constructed their present house in 1914.
On April 25 of this year the Foemmel’s son, Forest, took over the home farm. He lives in a house recently built just north of the home of his parents.
Guests at the anniversary dinner Saturday night included the following: The Rev. and Mrs. L. L. McCormick, Bonnie and Janet; Mr. and Mrs. Wenzel Lee, Eldon, Norbert and Kathryn; Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert Korth, Gloria and Linda; Mrs. Walter Korth, Darrell and Diane; Mr. and Mrs. Forest Foemmel, Daniel, Debra and Kathleen; and Mr. and Mrs. Roger Lee and Sharon.
