Hales, Mr. and Mrs. George (60th - 29 March 1971)

Mr. and Mrs. George Hales Rt. 1 Granton, observed the 60th anniversary of their marriage with a family gathering at their home last Saturday evening. The get-together also honored the birthday of Mr. Hales and the second wedding anniversary of a granddaughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Lewis of Milwaukee. All three events fall on the same date, March 29.

George Hales and the former Mary Krejci were married March 29, 1911, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Krejci, in the Town of York. Rev. Burrows of the Neillsville Methodist Church performed the ceremony on a day which Mrs. Hales remembers as being cloudy and rather mild. Not as much snow remained on the ground as this year, but she recalls that the usual springtime muddy road prevailed.

The Hales, who live near one another in the York area as youngsters and attended the same school, have resided on their present farm throughout their married life. They retired several years ago.

Mr. and Mrs. Hales are the parents of two daughters, Verona, Mrs. Lawrence Hainz of Milwaukee, and Marian, Mrs. John Hiett of Davenport, Ia. There are six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Guests at the Hales home for the joint observances included their daughter, Mrs. Hainz, who provided the anniversary and birthday cakes, and the following grandchildren and tear families: Mr. and Mr s. Wayne Hainz and three children of Whitewater, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bobick of New Brighton, Mn., and Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Lewis and daughter and Miss Connie Hainz, all of Milwaukee. Grandsons Carl and Jim Hainz were unable to attend.

Other guests were Mr. Hales’ sister and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. William Eibergen, his sister-in-law, Mrs. Verla Hales, and Mrs. Hales’ sister, Miss Estelle Krejci of Neillsville.

Mrs. Eibergen and Mrs. Verla hales organized a card shower for the couple, just as they had ten years earlier at the time of the Hales’ Golden wedding anniversary.
