Schwarz, Mr. & Mrs. Samuel (Gold - 20 NOV 1944)


Monday afternoon, Nov. 20th, 1944, the home of Dr. and Mrs. Schwarz was the scene of one of those happy celebrations that come to a married couple but once in a lifetime - the golden wedding anniversary.  Many friends visited the home during the afternoon hours to extend greetings and the hopes of many more anniversaries to come; many who could not be present telephoned, congratulations; many sent cards and gifts; several friends came from away.  And one of the happiest parts of the anniversary celebration for all was the presence of their son and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Schwarz of Berrien Springs, Mich.


Samuel George Scharz, a native of Stuttgart, Germany, and Miss Flora M. Perkins, whose birthplace was in the territory of Dakota, now the state of South Dakota, were married Nov. 20, 1894 at Centralia, Wis.  Centralia was lost in oblivion many years ago.  Bur all of us who know them are rejoicing that fifty years later their home is only about fifty miles away from its founding place.  The bride was a trained nurse, but the groom did not have the M.D. Title at the time.  He picked that up a few years later at Marquette.  If memory serves us correctly a practice was established at Watertown, he told the story while driving through the city, and some connection with a water pail cause their removal to Milwaukee.  A year later found them in Granton, and since 1912, Humbird had been home.


Dr. Schwarz went with the militia company of Neillsville to the border, and came out of the first World War as a captain in the medical corps.  He returned to his practice in Humbird, and continued until the Marshfield Clinic selected him as one of their specialists.  While with the clinic he took post graduate work at the University of Vienna.  This gave opportunity for his last visit to his boyhood home in the old country.  Changes in the clinic, and the passing away of some of its noted officials, brought the doctor and his good wife back home, after an absence of about ten years.


Both Dr. and Mrs. Schwarz have always been builders in the community; builders of better homes and gardens; builders of church and school; builders of a higher character for all associates.  The doctor’s calls as a physician have reached far beyond the confines of the home community.  This little community which has celebrated more golden wedding than any other of many times its size in the nation.  To know them intimately is to want to join hands with them in that same spirit of building.  May they be enabled to continue in that building spirit for many years to come.
