Zenz, Mr./Mrs. Joe (Gold - 26 NOV 1939)

Fifty years ago, Nov. 26, 1889, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Zenz were married at Lancaster. They lived there for 14 years and their two children, Theresa and Joe, were born there. Theresa is now Mrs. Ed Kreuser of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and the only child living since the death of Joe a few years ago.

In 1903 Mr. and Mrs. Zenz and children moved to a farm just west of the village limits of Loyal (Clark Co.), and with their interest in their church, the school, and other good causes soon became an important part of the community. About 12 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Zenz moved into a pleasant home in the village. They have 5 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

Last Sunday evening a group of their old farm neighbors surprise the golden wedding couple by gathering at their home to help them celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. They brought with them a delicious lunch. Mrs. Schultz, in honor of the day, made a large wedding cake decorated with gold colored icing. The evening was spent visiting and playing games. In remembrance of the occasion, a gift of money was presented to Mr. and Mrs. Zenz.

Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Coryell, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Beaver, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Kreuser, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Schultz, Mr. and Mrs. George Zuehlke, Mr. and Mrs. Bert Brown, Mr. and Mrs. R.E. Larson, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Rueth, Dr. and Mrs. Castner, Mrs. A. Fricke, Miss Julia Habhegger and Mr. John Habhegger.

The Gleaner joins their many relatives and friends in extending best wishes for many more years of happy wedded life.
