King, Mr. & Mrs. Conrad (50tth - 4 NOV 1951)
Mr. and Mrs. Conrad King celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Nov. 4, 1951, at St. Anthony’s Church, Loyal, Wis. They were married Nov. 4, 1901 in St. John’s Church, Edgar, Wis., with Father Rhoade, Marshfield, Wis., officiating at that ceremony. The attendants at the time were Mary Lindenmeyer, sister of the bride, and John King, brother of the groom.
The jubilarians renewed their marriage vows Sunday at an Anniversary Mass celebrated by their son, Father Norbert King, and at which Mass the children and grandchildren received Holy Communion. Donald and Ronald Schlichte, twin grandsons, served at the mass. St. Anthony’s Girls’ Choir, under the direction of Sister M. Thelma, organist, sang the jubilee Mass. The altar was decked with yellow and white mums.
After the Mass a turkey dinner was served by a group of ladies from to parish to sixty guests. Those serving included Mesdames: Nick Beaver, Raphael Haas, Lothar Oestreich, Wilbur Hannan, James Christenson, and Clayton Englebretson. During the dinner the Girls’ Choir sang a number of songs. A poem was recited by Terrence Denk, pupil from St. Anthony’s School. Supper was again served in the evening.
Mrs. King was attired in a two piece orchid dress with matching hat and accessories and wore a corsage of yellow baby mums.
The hall was decorated in yellow and gold with white bells and streamers.
An unusual note was added to the celebration by the receipt of a cablegram received from his Holiness, Pope Pius XII, bestowing the Apostolic Blessing upon the jubilarians.
A purse and other gifts were presented to the honored couple.
Present at the ceremony were all the children: sons, George, Edgar, Wis.; Alex, Athens, Wis.; Conrad, Edgar, Wis.; Clarence, Madison, Wis., and Father Norbert King, Loyal, and daughters, Mrs. Cecelia (Frank) Schlichte, Wausau, Wis.; Mrs. Marcella (Clair) Richardson, Milwaukee; Mrs. Cornelia (Bernard) Zenner, Elroy, Wis.; Mrs. Clara (Marvin) Arndt, Rothschild, Wis.; and Betty King, Milwaukee, and twenty-three grandchildren.
The sister and brother of Mr. King, Mrs. Victoria Welsh, Wausau, Wis., Charles King, Edgar, Wis., also attended the celebration.
