Stevens, Mr. and Mrs. Irving (40th - 26 November 1959)


Abot 50 relatives and close friends helped Mr. and Mrs. Irving Sevens celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary at their home Friday evening. Their anniversary was the 26th but that being Thanksgiving Day; the party was planned for a day later.  The evening was spent visiting and some of the men played cards.


The ladies took food, and a lunch was served.  A wedding cake, made by Mrs. Robert Mortenson, was the center piece.  The couple was presented with cards and money in remembrance of the occasion. 


They have three daughters: Mrs. Leland (Eileen) Dopp, Marshfield; Mrs. Jack (Ione) Urban, Rt. 1 Neillsville; and Mrs. Wallace (Joanne) Krause, Milwaukee.  All were present at the anniversary party. They also have six granddaughters.

Lewis Coleman, then pastor, officiating.  Mrs. Coleman and the late Mrs. Charles Seif were witnesses.


They surprised their relatives and friends by their elopement.  They spent a few days honeymooning in the southern part of the state.
