Flink, Mr./Mrs. Andrew (61st Anniv. - 15 Aug. 1939)

Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Flink observed their sixty-first wedding anniversary at Unity last week, when they posed with their son, grandson and great-grandson for the four generation picture shown above. Pictured with Mr. and Mrs. Flink, who are 86 and 80 years old, respectively, are their son, August; grandson, Lorraine, and great-grandson, LeRoy Flink, all of whom have attended the same school at Unity, where the family has lived for 57 years, ever since coming to America from Sweden. After the celebration, the couple left for Milwaukee to spend the winter months with their daughter, Miss Marie Flink, as has been the custom for a number of years.

Sixty-one years of wedded life is the unusual record of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Flink of Milwaukee, formerly of Unity, who celebrated their wedding anniversary Aug. 15, at Unity. Mr. Flink is now 86 years old and his wife is 80 years of age.

Their marriage took place in Sweden, and when their son, August was three years old they came to the United States. They lived at Unity for 57 years and are well-known in this section of the state, but for the past 15 years they have made their home in Milwaukee, although they still spend their summers at Unity. Because of Mrs. Flink’s ill health they returned to Milwaukee last week.

Mr. and Mrs. Flink are the parents of nine children: Mrs. Sam Stark, Ted, Carl, and August, all of Unity; John and William, of Minneapolis; Oscar, Jennie, and Marie of Milwaukee. They also have 23 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. The couple makes their home with Miss Marie Flink.
