Martin, Mr. and Mrs. Paul (Golden - 14 October 1964)


Mr. and Mrs. Paul H. Martin, former residents of the Town of Lynn now living in Corvallis, Ore., observed their golden wedding anniversary October 11, at their home. More than 100 friends and relatives attended the observance.


Mrs. Martin is a sister of Mrs. Louis Lautenbach and of Arthur Opelt, both of rural Neillsville.  The Opelt’s and their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Opelt, visited in their home last July, as did Mr. and Mrs. Lautenbach.


For the celebration, Mrs. Martin wore a blue dress and a white orchid.  A three-tiered anniversary cake, decorated with golden candles and flowers, was served by Mrs. James Martin, Mrs. Richard Wirtz and Mrs. Harry Brandt, daughters of the honored couple.  Assisting with the guest book and gifts were the couple’s granddaughters, Mrs. Dave (Judy) Roberts, Janet Brandt and Gloria and Barbara Martin.


With the exception of one son, all of the Martins’ sons and daughters were present for the event.  They included: Lt. Col. Stanley E. Martin and family of Everett, Wash.; Mr. and Mrs. Richard Wirtz and family of Longview, Wash.; Mr. and Mrs. James Martin and family of Eugene, Ore.; Mr. and Mrs. Harry Brandt and daughter of Corvallis; Donald Martin of Los Angeles, Calif.; Mrs. Carol Wirtz of Portland, Ore.; Mr. and Mrs. David Robare of Seattle, Wash.; and Mrs. and Mrs. Barney Robare and daughter, Jeanne of Albany, Ore. Their son, Paul Kouis, of Las Vegas, Nev., was unable to attend.


The Martins were married October 14, 1914, in the Town of Lynn. They moved to Corvallis in September, 1942. Both Mr. and Mrs. Martin were employed on the Oregon State University campus until they retired in 1958. They live at 463 Harrison Street, Corvallis, Ore.
