Courchaine, Mr./Mrs. Peter (Gold – 5 JUL 1969)

The children of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Courchaine of Abbotsford (Clark Co., Wis.) held open house for them at their home Saturday from 1 to 10 p.m. on the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary.

Peter Courchaine, a native of Lena, Wisconsin, and Veronica Landmesser of Chicago were married at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Chicago July 5, 1919. After their marriage they farmed in South Dakota for eight years, and then came to Wisconsin, near Tomah. Thirty-five years ago they came to Taylor County and farmed five and one-half miles northwest of Medford. Seventeen years ago they retired from farming. They purchased a home on North Third Street in Abbotsford and have lived there for the past six years.

Both are members of St. Bernard's Catholic Congregation.

The Courchaines have six children, Phyllis Courchaine of Chicago, Richard Courchaine of Beulah, Wyoming , Allan Courchaine of Swan Valley, Idaho, Betty Courchaine of Minneapolis and Joe Courchaine of Abbotsford.

They have 15 grandchildren and one great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Courchaine has two sisters, Mrs. Frank (Blanche) Meinke of Downers Grove, Illinois, and Mrs. Marth Strall of Oak Lawn, Illinois.

All of the children were here for the anniversary celebration. Other relatives present were Mr. Courchaine's cousin, Mrs. Dave Prosser, and daughter of Menasha, Mrs. Frank Meinke of Downers Grove, Illinois, Dr. J.P. Korchik of Minneapolis, and friends from Medford.
