Prock, Mr. and Mrs. Linus (Golden –7 June 1961)


The 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Linus Prock, pioneer Globe family, was celebrated Saturday.  An anniversary dinner was served at Club 10 for members of the immediate family. Special table decorations and a money tree were in keeping with the event.


Linus Prock, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Michael Prock of the Town of Weston, and Agnes Quast, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Quast of the Town of Eaton, were married June 7, 1911, in the Catholic Church in Greenwood with the Rev. Frank Boeckman officiating.


Born November 7, 1880, in Globe, Mr. Prock attended Fairview School. In 1907, he purchased the Globe Store from George Rupprecht.  After their marriage in 1911, the newlyweds took up residence in the apartment above the Globe store, where they lived for nearly 50 years.  In 1957, they moved to Neillsville.


Mr. and Mrs. Prock are the parents of three children, Mr. James (Lucille) McConnell of Greenwood, Harold of Neillsville, and Mrs. John (Dolores) McKenzie of Davenport, Ia. They also have 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
