Wolfram, Mr./Mrs. Arthur (Gold – 27 JUN 1966)

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wolfram celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary Sunday, July 24, 1966 with an "open house" at the St. Paul's Lutheran Church at Curtiss from 2 to 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and receiving guests again that evening at the home in Owen.

Wedding anniversary morning began with the Wolframs attending the morning service at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Curtiss, at which their son Norman rendered a solo during the service, "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say." Their pastor, Rev. Tellock conducted the service before an altar decorated with yellow roses and yellow carnations in their honor.

At the afternoon reception the Ladies' Aid of St. Paul's served the lunch and refreshments. A lovely decorated wedding cake was the center of interest at the tables and gold vases held yellow roses. A large number of friends and relatives attended the afternoon and evening gatherings.

Mrs. Wolfram's corsage was a yellow rose and yellow carnation arrangement, and Mr. Wolfram wore a yellow carnation boutonniere. Both of their children and their families were here for the occasion.

Arthr Wolfram and the former Edith Myhre were married on June 27, 1916 at St. Paul by a Lutheran minister in the rectory of the Good Shepherd Church. They made their first home in Ladysmith and later moved to Owen, where they have lived for almost forty years.

Mrs. Wolfram was born in Sheboygan July 12, 1889, one of four children. Still living is his brother at Fort Atkinson, and a sister at Sheboygan. His oldest brother, Oswald, passed away in March at Sheboygan.

He was first employed in Amery, and when moving to Owen (Clark Co., Wis.) he worked in the cannery. Later he was employed by the Soo Line and also worked as a postal clerk. Later in life he was employed at Foremost Dairy in Owen, where he worked until his retirement.

Mrs. Wolfram was born Dec. 6, 1896 at Lanesboro, Minn., later moving to Amery with her parents, brothers and sisters, where they lived on a farm. She was one of nine children raised there and at present has four brothers and two sisters living.

The Wolframs have two children, Rodger, who is married and live in Eau Claire, and Gloria, Mrs. Norman Erickson, now living in Stoughton. They lost three children in infancy and a daughter, Virginia. They have nine grandchildren.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Wolfram are in good health and in their retirement have been enjoying their children and visiting many relatives. Mrs. Wolfram was an ardent trout fisherman a few years back, at which time he haunted the streams in northern Wisconsin much of his time. Of late his fishing trips are but few.

Since Mrs. Wolfram's retirement from the Master Package Corp. of a year ago, she finds enjoyment in her flower garden and visits with her children and grandchildren. They are both fond of traveling and have made many trips to California, Seattle, Wash., Niagara Falls, Minneapolis, Sheboygan, Fort Atkinson, Amery, Clear Lake, visiting friends and relatives.
