Langholz Silver Anniversary  (07 July 1946)


The silver wedding anniversary of the Rev. John C. Langholz, pastor of Trinity Lutheran church and his wife, Frances B. Meske Langholz, was celebrated on Sunday, July 7. Rev. and Mrs. Langholz were united in marriage on July 7, 1921, At Akron, Ia.


A 10:45 morning service at Trinity church was conducted by the Rev. Fred A. Meske Sr. of Marshfield. Rev. Meske is the bride’s father and officiated at the original ceremony. The groom’s father, the Rev. Christian Langholz, who delivered the sermon at that time, is deceased. Before an altar beautifully decorated with garden flowers, Rev. and Mrs. Langholz renewed their marriage vows. The choir sang "Bless the Lord," sung at the wedding 25 years ago, and Orville Nysted sang "The Lord’s Prayer.


Mrs. Langholz chose a dusk rose dress for the occasion and wore a corsage bearing her bridal flowers, Ophelia roses, daisies and swansonia.

A 1 o’clock wedding dinner was served to relatives and out-of-town guests in the church parlors. The tables were decorated with garden flowers, candles and three wedding cakes, received as gifts to carry out the original yellow and white bride’s colors.


An open house was observed at the church parlors, from 8 until 10 p.m. for members of Trinity church, neighboring pastors and friends. The congregation and the church organizations presented Rev. and Mrs. Langholz with a liberal purse and other gifts.
