Zasoba, Mr./Mrs. John (50th - JAN 1956)


About 375 relatives and guests were registered in the guest book at the 50th wedding anniversary dinner and open house of Mr. and Mrs. John Zasoba, Withee’s (Clark Co., Wis.) highly respected citizens, who have spent their entire married life in one village.  At noon dinner was served to 125 relatives and lifelong friends, followed by a very nice program at 2:00 o’clock by local talent, friends of the Zasobas’ and arranged by Miss Dorothy Nielsen, who acted as mistress of ceremonies.


Short addresses and words of congratulations were given by Rev. Predoehl and Rev. Wendling, a former pastor of St. John’s Church here.


George Baehr, brother of the bride, gave a very enlightening and amusing talk of the early life of the groom from the time of his arrival in Wisconsin until the founding of his present business. Following the program a cafeteria lunch was served.  Dinner and lunch were served by the band mothers.


Many lovely gifts, flowers and cards were accepted by the honored couple.  Eldon, their eldest son of Peoria, Ill., and Peter Zasoba, a brother from Chattanooga, Tenn., arrived Friday night.  Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Zasoba, their youngest son, who is stationed in Germany and unable to be here, was represented by beautiful flowers he had delivered Sunday morning for his parent’s wedding.


Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Baehr and Mr. and Mrs. Jack Alger and family from St. Paul, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Baehr and family from Altoona, Norman Baehr and daughter from Mosiness, Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Westphal and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Rendere from Abbotsford, Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Westphal and family from Milan, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Baramaker and daughters from Stetsonville, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Krapel and sons from Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Herb Baehr and family from Dorchester, and Mr. and Mrs. Herb Wilhelmi from Dorchester were the out of town relatives present for the memorable occasion.
