Hebert, Mr. and Mrs. Chester (Golden - 20 September 1972)

Friends and relatives gathered Sunday at the Loyal United Methodist Church for the Golden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Chester Hebert of Loyal.

Tables were decorated with golden chrysanthemums and colored wheat. Mrs. Leona Schmidt of Winter, a sister-in-law of mrs. Hebert, made a five-tiered wedding cake, which was decorated in clusters of golden grapes with clusters of golden grapes with green leaves. She also made a special cake in the form of an open book.

Mrs. Hebert is the former Signe Johnson, daughter of William and Amanda Johnson of the town of Beaver. Her husband was also from the Town of Beaver. His parents were Isaac and Mary Ann Hebert.

They were married September 20, 1922, at the Methodist parsonage in Loyal. Two of their attendants, Ben Clouse and Mrs. Albert (Martha Mrotek) Rueth, were present. The other two attendants live in distant states.

Also attending was Mr. Hebert’s 91-year-old brother, Roy, and his wife, who are residents of Colby. Mrs. Hebert’s sister, Mrs. Clarence Karnopp of Thorp, and her half-brother, Ulysses Cain of Loyal, also were present.

Dinner was served for members of the immediate family and close relatives and the attendants in the Fellowship hall at noon.

Until 1961 the honored couple farmed in the Town of Beaver. After moving into Loyal, Mr. Hebert worked for a number of years. He is now retired.

The Hebert’s have two children. Their daughter, Gloria (Mrs. John Lea Vesseur) lives in Chippewa Falls; and their son, Leland lives in Unity. There are eight grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.

Their daughter and daughter-in-law planned the celebration. Many gifts and cards were placed beneath a “Money Tree.” Refreshments and cake were served during the afternoon.
