Turnquist, Mr. and Mrs. Carl (Fortieth - 21 June 1973)

An open house was held Sunday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Turnquist in celebration of the 40th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Turnquist.

Carl Turnquist and Evelyn Olson were married June 21, 1933, by the Rev. M. K. Aaberg in Trondjhem Lutheran Church in Greenwood. Attendants present Sunday were his brother and her sister, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Turnquist and Arthur Hendrickson, all of Greenwood. Another attendant, her sister, Mrs. Orville Oswald of Greenwood, was not present.

After their marriage the Turnquist’s farmed 4½ miles northwest of Greenwood until 1972, when they retired from farming and moved into the city of Greenwood.

The anniversary party was hosted by their four children and families, all of whom were present. They are: Mr. and Mrs. Larry (Cora) Solberg and four children of Elk Mound; Mr. and Mrs. E. Tom (Hilda) Dennison of Green Bay; Mr. and Mrs. Chester Turnquist , on the home farm; and Mr. and Mrs. Edward Turnquist of Greenwood.

The honored couple received many gifts and congratulatory messages.
