Johnson, Mr. & Mrs. J.C. (Gold - 13 JUN 1947)
Friday, June 13th, 1947, Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Johnson observed their golden wedding anniversary. Although the day was unpleasant and rain fell, a hundred or more people visited their home to offer congratulations to this worthy couple and wish them many happy returns of the day. There was open house from two until five in the afternoon, during which time coffee, cade and ice cream were served by a bevy of young ladies, to those coming and going.
At 6:30 a sumptuous supper, including a beautifully decorated wedding cake, was served to nearly fifty relatives. Many very lovely gifts were received, and also a purse of money.
Relatives from out of town attending were Mr. and Mrs. John Erickson and family of Lindsay; Mrs. I.V. Putman and Mrs. Herbert Phillips of Janesville; Hilliard Campbell and daughter Edith of La Crosse; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Chenoweth of Hixton; Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Sweeney of Eleva; Mr. and Mrs. Thos E. Welch Jr. of Chippewa Falls; Mrs. H.R. Welch, Ronald and Mary Lou of Jim Falls; and Henry Johnson of Lindsay.
After the supper, Rev. Sachtjen of Merrillan, performed a renewal wedding ceremony, in the presence of those assembled. Henry Johnson, who stood up with his brother so long ago, again stood by his side, and his oldest daughter, Jrs. John Erickson, took her mother’s place beside the bride.
The entire day was a most happy one, and Mr. and Mrs. Johnson express their gratitude to all the kind friends who helped to make it so, and also to those who remembered them with gifts and congratulatory notes on this occasion.
