Schlinsog, Mr. and Mrs. Harry (Golden - 24 June 1974)

More than 130 friends and relatives honored Mr. and Mrs. Harry Schlinsog on their golden wedding anniversary at an open house last Sunday afternoon at the Star Lodge Motel in Loyal.

At noon there had been a family dinner with their children and families and a few close friends. Table decorations of flowers and candles were in the colors of the golden anniversary. Mrs. Irene Jacobi, Granton, decorated the wedding cake.

Mrs. Schlinsog, the former Nelda Drescher, taught rural schools for five years before her marriage at Marshfield on June 24, 1924. She was a 1919 graduate of the old teacher’s training department of Neillsville High school. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Drescher of the Town of Lynn. She has substituted in both public and parochial schools since then.

Mr. Schlinsog’s parents were Mr. and Mrs. Herman F. Schlinsog of the Town of Grant. He received his education in the Granton Schools.

After their marriage the couple lived on his parents’ farm for five years, after which he worked in the Lynn Dairy, and later in the Neillsville Milk Products Cooperative, for eight years before they purchased the present factory, the Schlinsog Dairy at Pelsdorf, which their son, Ted is operating.

During his years as a buttermaker, Mr Schlinsog won many prizes in competition. Now he helps in the diary, where cheese is made. Mrs. Schlinsog does the book work for the factory.

During the winter season, Mrs. Schlinsog bowls and her husband also bowled until three years ago. They both enjoy fishing.

She is an active member of Pelsdorf Homemakers. They are members of Trinity Lutheran Church at Loyal.

Their children are: Ted Schlinsog, Loyal; Bill Schlinsog of Middleton; and Dick Schlinsog, Marshfield. There are four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Special guests at the celebration were their attendants of 50 years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Schlinsog of Chili. Another was Harris Dux and his wife of Hudson. Mr. Dux lived with the Schlinsogs for a number of years and worked in the factory.
