Clintsman, Mr. and Mrs. Fred (Golden - 28 March 1973)

Approximately 100 relatives and friends attended the “Open House” held in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Clintsman of Greenwood Sunday in Grace United Methodist Church.

Mrs. Clintsman and her attendant wore corsages of pink and gold-tinted carnations, and Mr. Clintsman wore a boutonniere of white and gold-tinted carnation.

Gold and white streamers decorated the room. The tables held arrangements of yellow roses and white carnations tinged with gold. The anniversary cake was in the form of an open book, with a special quotation from the Bible.

A program was given with Nell Goetz in charge; a prayer, by Marie Thomson; a piano solo, by Richard Goetz; and accordion selection by Susan Clintsman, with David Clintsman on the drums; a cornet solo by Tom Goetz; a solo, “Holy City,” by Gill Goetz, with Elsie Goetz as accompanist; and several selections with Bill Goetz on the guitar and Knute Wallin on the banjo.

Mr. and Mrs. Clintsman were married March 28, 1923, at the home of her parents in Greenwood by the Rev. G. Bickell.

Fred C. Clintsman, son of Charles and Ellen Clintsman, a lifelong resident of Clark County, was born May 26, 1898, in the Town of York.

After their marriage they lived for one year on a farm south of Oshkosh, and in 1924 they came to Greenwood and purchased the former Roewert farm, southwest of here. They retired from faming in 1970 and moved into Greenwood.
