Harding, Mr./Mrs. E. K. (50th Anniv. - 6 July 1943)

Mr. and Mrs. E. K. Harding, together with relatives and friends, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at their home, Tuesday. Dinner was served in the evening to about 50 guests. The centerpiece of the table was a three-tiered cake, decorated with gold rosettes, made by their daughter, Mrs. Fred Miller. Their son, Donald, presented them with two dozen large, yellow roses.

Mr. and Mrs. Harding received many beautiful gifts in honor of the occasion.

Mrs. Harding, the former Pauline Heinrich, was born Sept. 22, 1875, in Fond du Lac county, coming to a farm seven miles south of Marshfield at the age of seven and living there until her marriage in 1893.

Mr. Harding was born March 15, 1867, in Quincy, Adams county. When he was three years old, his family moved to a farm in Clark county near Chili.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Harding have vivid memories of the early history of this country.

After their marriage, they lived at different times in Colby, Dorchester, La Crosse and Abbotsford and returned to Abbotsford five years ago. Mr. Harding had been a practicing veterinarian all these years.

Eight of their nine children were home for the golden wedding celebration, Tuesday. Only their son, Edward, in the service, was unable to be present. Their children are: Vernon Harding, Bangor, Wis.; Mrs. Lewis (Dorothy) Harry, Mrs. Louis (Lula) Gilinksi, Mrs. Roman (Cora) Pflum, Miss Lila Harding and Hallie Harding, all of Marshfield; Mrs. Fred (Nora) Miller, Curtiss; Donald Harding, St. Paul; and Staff Sgt. Edward Harding in the southwest Pacific.

There are 16 grand children and three great grand children.
