Heintz, Mr./Mrs Otto (50th Anniv. - 4 Apr. 1954)

Mr. and Mrs. Otto Heintz were tendered a golden wedding anniversary party Sunday evening, April 4th, by the Cherokee W.A., of which Mrs. Heintz has been a member of 39 years. The party was held at the Rifleman’s Club room, the former Cherokee school house, where Mr. Heintz taught at the time of their marriage.

Approximately 50 guests were present, cards were played and several club ladies presented a short skit and song, "Put on Your Old Gray Bonnet," dressed in clothes of 50 years ago. This was enjoyed very much.

Winners at pinochle were Otto Brehm and Mrs. Emil Wolk, high; Carl Dallman and Mrs. W. G. Danielson, second; Dale Reis and Mrs. Otto Brehm, low. At canasta Mrs. Rose Viergutz and Harold Viergutz were winners.

Mr. Heintz was called upon to reminisce on the history of the Cherokee School and community at that time, noting the fact that quite a number of former pupils were present at the party. He also stated that he liked the Cherokee community so well that he stayed right there for over 50 years and wants to spend the rest of his days in the same place.

Mr. and Mrs. Heintz expressed their appreciation to the Cherokee W.A. for a very enjoyable golden wedding party.

Hulda Wenzel of Spencer and Otto Heintz of Unity were married at a quiet home wedding at Spencer on April 5, 1904, Rev. R. N. Colby officiating. During the first years of their married life, they lived in a little log house near the Cherokee School where Mr. Heintz taught for eight years. They bought a farm near Cherokee in 1907 where they still reside. They have one daughter, Mrs. John Coates.
