Voigt, Mr. and Mrs. Gust (Golden - 30 September 1961)


Forty-five relatives sat down at a double golden wedding anniversary dinner for Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Oestreich and Mr. and Mrs. Gust Voigt, both of the Town of Sherman, Sunday evening in Trinity Lutheran Church in Loyal.  From 150 to 200 friends gathered at an open house later at the Ray Oestreich home.


Their double wedding ceremony was performed September 30, 1911, in Loyal.  The two couples were neighbors all of their wedded life in the Town of Sherman.  Mr. Oestreich has farmed for the last 50 years; and Mr. Voigt in addition to farming was an officer of the Clark County R. E. A. and was a cheesemaker for many years.


The celebration was planned by the children, all of whom were present. It was held 13 days ahead of the actual wedding date in order to accommodate relatives.


Children attending with their families included: Alan Voight of Loyal, and Mrs. Sojhia (Voigt) Klemme, wife of Dr. O. R. Klemme of Stratford; Ray and Elmer Oestreich of Loyal, and Mrs. Herman (Mildred Oestreich) Stange of Appleton.


Neighbors (now) and neighbors of former years and other friends gathered for the double celebration of these two pioneer families of he Town of Sherman.
