Poppe, Mr./Mrs. Donald (Silver – 25 SEP 1973)

Mr. and Mrs. Donald Poppe entertained over 240 guests at the Quonset at Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.) on Friday night, September 28, 1873, in celebration of their 25th wedding anniversary. Dancing to the music of Lenny's Diamondaires was enjoyed from 7 to 12, and enjoyed by friends and relatives. During the evening a mock wedding was presented for entertainment by the Poppe children. Paulette was the groom, Ronny the bride, wearing his mother's wedding dress of white satin and lace. Larry Klabon was the minister and the other children, Josie, Lori, and Danny Popple, and Ron's wife Yumi, and Kenneth and Bobby Knecht were the attendants. Refreshments and lunch were served to add to the occasion.

All of the original wedding party were in attendance: Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Knecht, Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Lulloff, Mrs. Russel Martinson, Mrs. Delmond Olson, and Mrs. Edward Miller, and Mrs. Poppe's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Laabs.

The Poppes were married September 25, 1948 at St. Paul's Church in the town of Green Grove. They were blessed with five children and have three grandchildren, Missy and Lisa Klabon of La Crosse, and Ricky Poppe, son of Mrs. Ronald Poppe, who is stationed with the Navy in Iwakuni, Japan.
