Dankemyer, Mr. and Mrs. William (Golden - 17 October 1967)

Mr. and Mrs. William Dankemyer of Granton, Rt. 1, who were married by Rev. Martin Hasz October 17, 1917, in Zion Lutheran Church in Granton, celebrated the golden anniversary of their marriage on Sunday, October 29, in the church parlors.

The parlors were the setting for an open house from 2 until 5, with tables decorated with bouquets of chrysanthemums and fall colors.

Gold colored roses were used for Mrs. Dankemyer’s corsage, and gold carnations were used for Mr. Dankemyer, as well as for corsages by their daughters and husbands.

William Dankemyer, son of the late August and Carrie Dankemyer, was born in the Town of Fremont December 5, 1893, and attended school in that township. He lived in Fremont before he married and worked on the home farm.

The Dankemyers are members of Zion Lutheran Church in Granton.

Mrs. Dankemyer, the former Ruby Martin, daughter of John and Anna Martin, was born in Lynn on August 6, 1892, and attended the Lynn Sunbeam School.

After their marriage Mr. Dankemyer purchased the farm of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Martin in Lynn, where they reside. He still operates the farm. Mr. Dankemyer also worked for the Lynn Telephone Company for 17 years after their marriage. His hobby is raising flowers.

They have two daughters, Mrs. Robert (Nona) Howard of Marshfield, and Mrs. Dean (Ione) Jevens, of Portage; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

There were 100 guests present for the golden event, from Plymouth, Milwaukee, Portage, Tigerton, Wittenberg, Marshfield, Neillsville, Granton, Chili and Lynn.
