Schmitz, Mr. and Mrs. Lamar (Silver – 6 August 1974)

Mr. and Mrs. Lamarr Schmitz, Neillsville, held open house Saturday evening at Bali Hai Supper Club in observance of their 25th wedding anniversary.

The former Thelma June Ott, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Ott, Marshfield, and Lamar Schmitz, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Schmitz, Lynn, were married August 6, 1949, at Nasonville by Pastor Melville.

They are parents of Richard of West Salem, and Duane, Dean, and Darla of Neillsville. A fourth son, Daniel is deceased.

Thelma and Lamar Schmitz have been in the grocery business for 25 years, and for the past 10 years have owned and operated Schmitz Family Market in Neillsville.

Wally Ives provided music for their wedding dance 25 years ago, and was on hand with music for the Satruday evening observance, which feathered a Hawaiian mock wedding. Those in the mock wedding party were Bob and Grace Urban, Jean and Francis Laatch, Jerry and Faye Opelt, and Don and Rosie Kunze.

The anniversary cake was made by Mrs. Walter Ott.

All the couple’s original attendants were on hand for the event, and Mr. and Mrs. Schmitz, received a treasure chest of 100 silver dollars from their children.
