Piekola, Mr. and Mrs. Gust  (50th - 10 OCT 1948)


Mr. and Mrs. Gust Piekola who were married in Nyborg, Sweden fifty years ago, celebrated their golden wedding with having an open house at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Frank Schwanke on route 1, Loyal, last Sunday, October 10th. Among the 200 guests that visited the golden jubilee were Mrs. Piekola’s brother and sister-in-law from Seattle, Washington, friends from Herbster, Iron River, and other places in the state and also neighboring states.


Telegrams and cards were received from Ely, Minnesota where the couple had made their home for a number of years since their arrival there in 1904. They moved to the Town of Beaver in 1914 and have made their living on a farm which they wrestled out of practically wilderness. Their son, Theodore operates the farm now and their other daughter, Jenie Brecker, resided in Owen.


A beautiful refrigerator was presented to the couple as a token of friendship from the guests and friends who had been notified of the event.


The Tribune joins the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Piekola in extending congratulations.
