Shute, Mr. & Mrs. Frank (Gold - 16 JUN 1946)


A very enjoyable celebration was observed at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank A. Shute, in Altoona, Sunday, June 16, 1946, the occasion being the fiftieth wedding anniversary.  The house was beautifully decorated with bouquets of lovely flowers, which were the gifts of friends.  A family dinner was served at one o’clock to fifty guests.  A social afternoon was enjoyed visiting with the bride and groom, reminiscing of many happy events through their wedded life of half a century.  Open house was held to their many friends from 4:00 to 8:00 o’clock.  Al enjoyed listening to the strains of "Put on Your Old Gray Bonnet," "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," and other appropriate numbers sung by Messrs. Bonell and Peterson, a very fitting closing to a most happy day.  Mrs. Bertha Stallard and Miss Alice Fowler attended the anniversary.


Frank Shute and Mabel Stallard were married at the Stallard home in Humbird on June 16, 1896.  Altoona later became their home, and after Mr. Shute retired from the railroad they engaged in the mercantile business.  Returning to Humbird to take over the Stallard store, they purchased the house in which they were wed (now occupied by Edwin Harris and family), and it was their home for a number of years.  When the store business was sold to A.W. Short in 1920, Mr. and Mrs. Shute resumed their residence in Altoona, where they are enjoying the sunset years of life.
