Prill, Mr. and Mrs. Albert (Golden - 20 November 1962)


Mr. and Mrs. Albert Prill, residents of Neillsville for 27 years, were honored at an open house November 18, in Montello in observance of their golden wedding anniversary.  The event was held at the Lester Draeger residence, where the Prills have made their home since 1955.


Those attending included friends from Neillsville, Montello, Edgerton, Milwaukee, Lake Mills, Princeton, Kingston, Markesan, Marshall, Oshkosh and Manchester.


An anniversary cake was the gift of two great-nieces, Geraldine and Virginia Draeger.  A gold money tree was presented to the couple by Mr. and Mrs. John Garthwait, Mr. and Mrs. Dale Grebel, Gloria Garthwait and LaVerne Froeming, great nieces and nephews of the couple.  Mrs. Lester Draeger and Mrs. Bernard Cragin served, and Mrs. Edward Garthwait was in charge of the guest book.


The Prills were married November 20, 1912, in the Springfield Town Lutheran Church.  They came to Neillsville in 1917 from Elgin, Minn., where they lived four years.  After leaving here they resided in Beloit for 12 years before moving to Montello.  They have no children.
