Rand, Mr./Mrs. Peter (60th Anniversary - 25 August 1975)

Mr. and Mrs. Peter Rand, Clark County residents for over half a century will observe their 60th wedding anniversary Saturday, August 30, with an open house from 2-5 p.m. at their home in Neillsville.

Peter Rand and the former Mabel Bayer were married August 25, 1915, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb Bayer, in Hampshire, Il. Attendants were her sister, Elizabeth, and Elizabeth’s fiancé, John Wimpleberg. Elizabeth and John were married shortly thereafter.

Mr. and Mrs. Rand moved to Clark County from Illinois 52 years ago and farmed in the Chili area for a number of years. Their son, Milton (Bud) took over operation of the family farm from them. He and his family have now moved to Chili.

The Rands have lived in their present home on West Fifth St. in Neillsville for the past 21 years. They are members of Calvary Lutheran Church. Both are in reasonably good health. Mrs. Rand marked the actual anniversary date Monday by washing clothes and canning pickles.

Their children, in addition to their son, Bud, are Mrs. Steve (Laura) Kapicak of Northbrook, Il., and Mrs. Harriet Ricci of LaGrange, Il. There are 12 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

Most members of the immediate family expect to be present for the open house observance.
