Lindow, Mr. and Mrs. William G. (Golden - 5 June 1968)

Mr. and Mrs. William G. Lindow of Rt. 1 Chili will be honored Sunday at an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. in Immanuel United Methodist Church parlors in Chili in honor of the Golden wedding anniversary.

They were feted by their children and grandchildren at a dinner in Wisconsin Rapids on the actual date of the anniversary, June 5. They were married June 5, 1918, in the Evangelical Church then located two miles southwest of Chili, by the Rev. W. F. Schuelke.

Mr. Lindow was born January 7, 1898, on the farm, where they still reside. His parents were the late Mr. and Mrs. Gustave Lindow. In addition to farming the land homesteaded by his parents, Mr. Lindow owned the first school bus to serve Marshfield High School. He drove bus for 27 years, retiring in 1964. He has been a lifelong member of the Evangelical church, now the United Methodist Church, in Chili. He enjoys hunting and fishing.

Mrs. Lindow, the former Mary Anna Drescher, was born October 16, 1898, on Rt. 1 Chili, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Bernhardt Drescher. She also is a member of the Chili church. Both Mr. and Mrs. Lindow are in good health.

They are the parents of a son, Marlyn, of Chili; and a daughter, Mrs. Rudy (Elvera) Horn of Stevens Point. They also have four grandchildren.

Members of the original wedding party were Ezra Drescher, deceased; Mrs. Harry Schlinsog of Loyal, sister of Mrs. Lindow; Mrs. John E. Leonard of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Amos Lindow of Janesville. The latter two will be unable to attend the open house Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. Lindow ask that gifts be omitted.
