Lesniewski, Mr./Mrs. Adam (Gold - 13 MAY 1961)

On May 13, 1961, a host of friends, neighbors and relatives helped Mr. and Mrs. Adam Lesniewski celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

The day began with a ten o’clock Mass, which was said by the Rev. Francis Disher at St. Hedwig’s Church. Six of their grandsons acted as mass servers, while five of their granddaughters were their flower girls.

Mrs. Edna Jasinek and Mr. Stanley Neiman, the first attendants at the marriage ceremony fifty years ago, did the honors for the celebrants again.

A reception was held at the PNA Hall, where Mrs. Frances Neiman, as toastmaster, read a short history of the couple’s married life, after which she called on each of the five children, some of the grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters for a few words. A song of congratulations was rendered by the grandchildren.

Following the evening meal, a dance was held, also a grand march led by Mary Ann Lesniewski dressed in a replica of the original wedding dress worn by Mrs. Lesniewski, and John Possley, who acted as bridegroom.

The couple’s five children are, Joseph of Antioch, Calif.; Josephine, Mrs. Al Galewski, Cicero, Ill., Helen, Mrs. Thomas Kobylarczyk, Thorp, Wis.; Frank, Thorp, Wis.; and Leona (Mrs. James Possley, Thorp, Wis.

Out of town guests were Mr. Joseph Lesniewski, Antioch, Calif., Mrs. Helen Lesniewski and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Metry and son, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Grabowski and son of St. Paul, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Al Grabowski and family of Cicero, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. John Lesneski and family, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Sluzewski and daughters of Owen, Wis.; Mr. and Mrs. Alex Neiman, Wausau, Wis.
