Selves, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh (Golden - 23 June 1965)


Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Selves, former Neillsville residents, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Sunday at their farm home between Alma Center and Black River Falls.


Mr. and Mrs. Selves were married June 23, 1915, in Neillsville. They lived for 12 years on a small farm west of Neillsville, now occupied by the Ray Reineck family. They moved to Neillsville in 1927, and later went to Madison where Mr. Selves was engaged in construction work.  Mr. and Mrs. Selves have resided at their present address since 1960.


Mr. and Mrs. Selves are the parents of six children: a son, Elliott of Chattanooga, Tenn.; and five daughters, Mrs. William (Mildred) Ormond of Milwaukee, Mrs. Neva Porath of Black River Falls, Mrs. Irene Kapusta of Neillsville, Mrs. Oscar (Vivian) Halle of Noblesville, Ind., and Mrs. James (Avis) Martin of Mukwonago.


The daughters spent the weekend with their parents, and Elliott arrived Sunday noon as a surprise to his parents.


Ten of their 18 grandchildren and their great-grandchild were present for the occasion.


Their attendants at the original wedding 50 years ago, Roy Snow and Ethel Randall, were unable to be present, due to a wedding in their family.
