Heiman, Mr. and Mrs. Henry (Golden Anniversary - 4 October 1954) 

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Heiman celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary Sunday. At the 10:00 high mass for their intentions they received a special blessing of the church from Rev. Peter Leketas, pastor of St. Mary’s. 

Dinner was served at their farm home to the following children: Mr. and Mrs. Russell Fangman, Wauwatosa, Wis.; Mr. and Mrs. Edward Heiman and daughter Julia of Phoenix, Ariz.; Mr. and Mrs. Michael Gruber of Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schmitt and sons of Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Peiffer and children of Duluth, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. L. P. Strachato and children of Elm Grove; and Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Hall and children of Milwaukee.  Father Leketas was also present. 

Open house was held from 2 o’clock.  Refreshments were served throughout the afternoon and evening to about 350 friends of the family. 

The Heimans were married October 4, 1904, at St. Mary’s church at Festina, Ia.  They moved to Clark County in 1918 and resided one year in the Town of Levis.  From there they moved to their present home in the Town of Weston.  Mr. and Mrs. Heiman are both in good health and are very active.  

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Heiman have presented a painting in oil of St. Mary’s Church to the congregation.  It will hang in the vestibule of the church.  Mrs. Edward Heiman, daughter-in-law of the Heimans, made the painting recently. The canvas, a major piece of art by Mrs. Heiman, measures 44 inches by 54 inches.  It is one of her largest productions.  She held an exhibition at Clear Lake, Wis., this summer and in Phoenix early in the spring.  Mr. and Mrs. Edward Heiman will return to their home in Phoenix by plane on October 13.
