Brenner, Mr./Mrs. Walter (Gold - 27 MAR 1963)

Over one hundred relatives and friends gathered to honor Mr. and Mrs. Walter Breen, Sr., Route 3, Stanley, Wis. on their Golden Wedding Anniversary, Saturday, June 1, 1963, at their home.

Mrs. Brenner chose for the day, a dress of permanently pleated jersey, a yellow and green print on a white background with an orchid corsage. Mr. Brenner’s boutonniere was a yellow rose. The tables were decorated with bouquets of yellow roses and carnations with gold foliage and gold tapers. The honored couple received many gifts and many gifts of money. A niece, Mrs. Roy Crosby, served the large tiered wedding cake and daughter-in-law, Mrs. Walter Brenner Jr., poured coffee. A dinner for immediate family was served at noon at the Axel Anderson home, with places for forty-three. Other neighbors helping to serve with Mrs. Anderson were: Mrs. Robert Rasmussen, Mrs. Leonard Soeller and Mrs. Harry Smith.

The former Lillian Warden and Walter Brenner were married at the Eidsvold Presbyterian Church by the Rev. Amy on March 27, 1913. Their attendants were Alfred Brenner, brother, now living at Gilman, Wis., and Edna Warden, sister, now deceased. The Brenners settled on a farm north of Eidsvold (Clark Co., Wis.), clearing most of the land, and lived there until a year ago.

In addition to farming, Mr. Brenner is chairman of the town of Thorp, having been on the town board for almost 40 years. He has also been on the Clark County Highway Committee for some years.

All of their children were present for the happy occasion, one daughter, (Norma) Mrs. Raymond Couillard of Gilman; Walter Jr. of Galesburg, Ill.; Bernard of Portage, Wis.; Kenneth of Marquette, Mich., and Wilfred of Cadott. They have sixteen grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren.

Guests were present from Bancroft and Algoma, Iowa; Maple Plain, Red Lake Falls, St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minn.; Portage, Stetsonville, Osseo, Greenwood, Cornell, Gilman, Cadott, Sheldon, Hannibal, Withee and Thorp.
