Schwarze, Mr./Mrs. Simon (Gold – 20 JUL 1951)

Friday, July 20th, 1951, marked the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Simon Schwarze.

Married at Fairchild, Wis. in 1901, the Schwarzes have spent the entire 50 years of their married life in and around Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.). They are the parents of four sons: Carl of Napa, California; Emil of Marshfield; Wesley of Greenwood; and Herbert of Madison. They have on granddaughter and four lving grandsons.

The Schwarzes spent the day quietly at home, where they received the well wishes and numerous gifts from their friends. At four o’clock the “Good Will Club,” of which Mrs. Schwarze is a member, served a delicious pot luck lunch to member of the club, friends and close neighbors.

The immediate family spent the evening at the Emil Schwarze home at Marshfield, where they enjoyed an anniversary dinner and family reunion. All member of the family were present, with the exception of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Schwarze and sons, of California, who were unable to attend because of recent hospitalization of one of their sons.

Highlighting the dinner was a huge layer cake topped with a small “bride and groom,” and other appropriate decorations commemorating the 50 years of married life. The sons and their families presented their parents with a chest of silver, with the expression that they would enjoy many more anniversary dinners together.
