Verhulst, Clarence & Esther (40th - 9 DEC 1966)


On Sunday, Oct. 9, 1966, some 150 friends and relatives came to help Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Verhulst celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary.  The open house was held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Greenwood, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.  Their children and families were hosts and hostesses for the occasion.


The serving table was centered with a 40th anniversary cake decorated in the ruby colors.  Mrs. Verhulst wore a corsage of red roses and white carnations while he wore a boutonniere.  The wedding attendants, Mrs. Celen (Harriet Verhulst) Gotter and Leonard Johnson, also wore flowers.


The honored couple were married on Dec. 9, 1926 by the Rev. Daniel Householder at the home of her parents.  Mrs. Verhulst was the former Esther Johnson.  Their first home was located on a farm 3 miles northeast of Greenwood.  They lived there until 1954 when they moved into Greenwood.


From this union there were four children, including one daughter, Corrine of Santa Monica, Calif., and three sons, Lyle of Loyal; Kenneth of Greenwood, and Harold of Chamberlain, S.D.  They have ten grandchildren.


Also present were all of the honored couple’s sisters and brothers.  Mrs. Verhulst’s two sisters are Mrs. Lester Luther, Eau Claire and Mrs. Harold Haupt of Elkhorn.  Mr. Verhulst has three sisters, Mrs. Wilfred Dugre, New Berlin; Mrs. Celen Gotter, Loyal, and Miss Ruth Verhulst, a Missionary in Malaysia, and one brother, Harvey of Sheboygan.  Many of their nieces and nephews were present too.
