Werle, Mr./Mrs. Philip (50th - 20 Apr 1926)

The home of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Werle, well known residents of Clark County, Wis., was the scene of a pleasant gathering, Tuesday evening, April 20th, 1926, when about twenty-five of their friends and neighbors gave them a pleasant surprise to remind them they had been married fifty years. So carefully had the affair been planned, that it came as a complete surprise to Mr. and Mrs. Werle.

The evening was spent in a social way and with games, after which a bountiful supper was served, a beautiful wedding cake with 50 golden candles occupying a prominent place on the table. The table decoration was a bouquet of yellow daffodils and white carnations.

The relatives from away who were present were Mrs. Louisa Morgenroth of Milwaukee, a sister to Mr. Werle, and Miss Clara Werle of Marshfield.

Mr. Werle who is 70 years old, was born in Washington Co., and Mrs. Werle who is 67 was born in Manitowoc Co. They were married on April 20, 1876 and in 1879 came to Clark County, settling near Spokeville, where they bought 80 acres of wild land, which they have converted into an improved farm and where they have since lived and are now enjoying the fruits of their labor.

They have 7 children, Adolph of Winfield, Kansas, Mrs. George Pellholpf of Milwaukee, Robert of Spokane, Wash., John of Wagner, Mont., Clara of Marshfield and Mrs. Frank Lulloff and Ella of Spokeville. Only three of the children were present at the anniversary.

The couple was presented with many beautiful gifts and flowers.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Werle are enjoying good health and it is the wish of their many friends that they live to enjoy many more anniversaries.
