Seif, Mr./Mrs. John (Gold – 16 JAN 1953)

A large group of relatives and friends joined Mr. and Mrs. John Seif at their home in Neillsville Friday evening, January 16, for dinner and an evening of visiting in celebration of their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Seif are lifelong residents of Clark County. Mrs. Seif was born in the Town of Weston. Mr. Seif was born in the Town of Sherwood. When he was four years old, he moved with his parents to what is known as the Town of Seif. The trip was made with oxen. Mr. Seif’s father, Fred Seif, was one of the first settlers in that area and because of his prominence in town affairs the township was named for him, as was the school now knows as the Worchel School.

Della Jacklin and John Seif were married in Neillsville on January 16, 1903, and went immediately to the home farm, where they lived for 46 years. Mr. Seif spent a total of 65 years on this one farm. He served 12 years as town chairman and held office as assessor and school treasurer for a number of years. They retired to Neillsville in 1947.

Mrs. Seif is 70, Mr. Seif 74. They have three children – Viola, Mrs. Lloyd Nelson of Foreston, Minn., Harley of Neillsville, and Robert, now on the Seif farm. There are seven grandchildren.
