Kattre, Mr./Mrs. Gilbert (Silver- 11 AUG 1970)

The Silver Wedding Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Kattre and a reunion of the Kalepp family were observed jointly at the Kattre home in Abbotsford (Clark Co., Wis.) on Sunday.

The afternoon and early evening were devoted to dancing, with music by Floyd Klemetson of Curtiss and Bob Mattson of Owen. There was a mock wedding and a buffet supper served.

Principals of the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Harold Kalepp Jr. of Abbotsford, as bride and groom; Mr. and Mrs. Gene Polzin of Janesville and Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Carpenter of Abbotsford as attendants. Clayton Kattre was the officiant. Gerry Kalepp gave the bride, and Clarence Kalepp was the soloist.

Alice Kalepp and Gilbert Kattre were united in marriage, August 11, 1945 at Christ Lutheran Church, Abbotsford, with the Rev. John Brandt officiating.

They made their home in Abbotsford since that time.

The Kattres have three sons, Clayton, a student at Wisconsin State University, Eau Claire; Rodney, presently employed in Sparta; and Gil at home. Mrs. Kattre's mother, Mrs. Adolph Kalepp, makes her home with them.

Her for the day's festivities were the Wm. Kalepp family, the Clarence Kalepp family, the Harold Kalepp family, and Mr. and Mrs. Norman Kalepp, who came from Milwaukee for the day.

Mr. Kattre's only brother, Elroy of St. Paul, was unable to be here.
