Peters, Mr. and Mrs. Donald E. (40th - 25 July 1962)


Their 40th Wedding anniversary was celebrated on July 25, by Mr. and Mrs. Donald E. Peters.  Their son and daughter-in-law, Dr. and Mrs. Robert D. Peters, and children, Mary Kay and Billy Peters, joined them at a special anniversary dinner.


Donald Peters was born in Waterloo where he received his elementary education and was graduated from high school.  He was graduated from the University of Wisconsin in June, 1922, and on July 25, 1922, was married to Gertrude Muscheid in Rockford, Ill.  Mrs. Peters was born and raised in Resseville.


In September, 1922, Mr. Peters accepted his first teaching assignment in LaFarge, where he and his bride went to housekeeping.  In 1925, they moved to West Salem, where Mr. Peters served as principal of the high school for four years.


Mr. and Mrs. Peters and son, Robert, moved to Neillsville in the summer of 1929.  Mr. Peters assumed the duties of principal here in September that year and was later elevated to the position of superintendent of schools.  He retired from his position of Neillsville superintendent last year.  He and his wife are continuing to make their home at 201 Clay Street.  They made an auto trip to the southeast area of the United States this summer and plan occasional shorter trips.
