Ellingson, Mr./Mrs. Engvald (Silver - 23 OCT 1946)

Relatives and friends surprised Mr. and Mrs. E.S. Ellingson at their home on Sunday, Oct. 20, 1946 and helped them celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary by bringing a bounteous dinner and supper. The correct date of the anniversary is the 23rd.

The table was laid for 41 guests and a three-tiered wedding cake, decorated with the figure “25” and rose buds, with silver candles in white holders at each side formed the centerpiece. The place cards were small white cookies baked by Mrs. Ellingson’s sister, with the names of each guest formed in colored icing. This was done by a niece. The napkins were white with silver flowers. A white Christmas tree with 25 silver dollars wrapped in cellophane and tied on with pink ribbon, formed part of the room decorations.

The afternoon was spent singing hymns and other songs. Elmer Johnson sang a solo, “Crowned With Thy Benediction” and the brother and sisters of the bride held a mock wedding.

Mr. and Mrs. Ellingson received a purse of silver from the group, a silver salad dish, a gift from their sons. Mr. and Mrs. Erling Ellingson sent their mother a corsage of red roses and white mums tied with a silver ribbon, and their father a white carnation boutonniere. They also received many beautiful cards of congratulations.

On Oct. 23, 1921, Miss Louis Indgjer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Olaf Indgjer of Strum, Wis. became the bride of Engvald S. Ellingson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Ellingson of Mondovi. The ceremony was performed at the West Bolf River Church, Rev. O.A. Hjembo officiating.

To this union were born five sons: Erling, Urbana, Ill.; Everett of Eau Claire, and Donald, James and Romaine, all at home, and one daughter, Dorie Ann, who passed away at the age of one year. All attended the celebration except Erling, who is attending the University of Illinois.

After their marriage, the Ellingsons resided in Mondovi until 1932, when they came to Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.).

Those present Sunday were: Mr. and Mrs. Olaf Indgjer, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Indgjer and daughter Eldora and sons Eugene, Dennis and Michael, Mr. and Mrs. Elsmore Indgjer and son James, all of Strum; Mrs. Everett Indgjer, Louis aase and son Junior, Mr. and Mrs. Chris Alleman, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Nyre, all of Mondovi; Mr. and Mrs. Harold Forbes, Muskegon, Mich.; Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Van Tassel, daughters Beverly and Shirley, and son bobby, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Indgjer, sons Ronald and Gary, and daughter Sandra, Mr. and Mrs. Romaine Indgjer and Everett Ellingson, all of Eau Claire, and Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Johnson of Greenwood.

The group left wishing Mr. and Mrs. Ellingson many more happy occasions.
