Sternitzky, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar (Golden - 1 May 1962)


Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Sternitzky, Sr., were pleasantly surprised Sunday when their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Sternitzky, Jr., entertained at a buffet dinner and open house at their home in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary.  Relatives and friends attended.


Oscar Sternitzky and the former Frilla Ann Lewis were married at his parents’ home near Granton on May 1, 1912, by Judge Oscar Schoengarth.  Their attendants were her brother, the late Andrew Lewis and Elva Catlin, now Mrs. Andrew Lewis of Loyal; and his cousins, Ruby Martin, (now Mrs. William Dankemyer of Lynn) and Joseph Sternitzky of Granton.


Mr. and Mrs. Sternitzky have lived in  the Town of Lynn most of their lives on a farm until their son, Oscar, Jr., took over the farm. They lived in Marshfield a few years and for the past 16 years have been retired on a small farm owned by their son.


Besides Oscar, Jr., the Sternitzky’s have three other children: Mrs. Fred (Vera) Wesenberg of Granton; Mrs. Ralph (Violet) Rodgers of Marshfield; Mrs. Luzern (Verna) Hahn of Marshfield, 23 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.  A daughter, Erma, died in infancy.


Mr. Sternitzky was born near Granton June 6, 1886, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sternitzky.  He was educated in the Town of Lynn School and was confirmed at the Zion Lutheran Church in Granton.  He had been a farmer all of his life.

Mrs. Sternitzky, the former Frilla Ann Lewis, was born in Richland County, the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Mark Lewis, on March 8, 1895.  She was educated there and came to Clark County as a young girl and lived with a sister until her marriage.  Her hobbies are flowers and fancy work.
