Hansen, Emil H., Mr./Mrs. (25th - 2 APR 1949)

On Saturday, April 2, 1949, Mr. and Mrs. Emil H. Hansen of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), celebrated their Silver Wedding Anniversary. Their son and daughter-in-law, Irvin Hansen of Lodi, Wis., where he is instructor in the Lodi school system, came home for occasion as did relatives from Hampton, Iowa. A family dinner was served at one o’clock Saturday to relatives from Withee and Hampton, Iowa. The home was festive with American Beauty roses and carnations.

On Sunday afternoon at open house between 70 and 75 friends and neighbors called to congratulate the happy couple, and to wish them much luck in the future. A buffet style lunch was served in the afternoon and evening, where a three tier wedding cake graced the center of the table, flanked by tall white tapers in silver candle holders, and low bowls of flowers. Mrs. Hansen served the wedding cake while the daughter-in-law, Mrs. Irvin Hansen, poured coffee from a beautiful silver service, their gift to their folks. In the evening from 30 to 35 more friends came to help make the occasion a memorable one.

Many beautiful silver gifts were received and a great many cards from relatives and friends from near and far.
