Sauer, Mr./Mrs. Herb (Silver – 20 OCT 1970)

Mr. and Mrs. Herb Sauer of route 2, Colby (Clark Co., Wis.), celebrated their Silver Wedding Anniversary Saturday evening, October 31, 1970, with a dinner at the Redwood Club at Unity.

The honored couple was presented with flowers. Hers was a corsage of red and white carnations, and his a white carnation boutonniere. Both were edged with silver leaves.

The centerpiece was an appropriately decorated cake and a blue Viking candleholder with a silver candle, which was a gift from their son, Roger.

Attending were members of their family, Mr. and Mrs. Nick (Eunice) Kleparski of Unity, Clifford of Wausau, and Roger, at home. They had one other child, Walter, who is deceased.

There is also a grandchild, five and one-half month old Michelle Dee Ann Kleparski.

Also present were Mr. and Mrs. Al Guth of Dorchester. Mrs. Guth was one of the attendants at their wedding. Other members of the wedding party were Mrs. Dominic Zicco of McHenry, Illinois, and Al Sauer of Milwaukee, who were unable to attend.

Mrs. Sauer's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Loos of Colby, were also among the dinner guests.

Later, they gathered with other friends and relatives for an evening of dancing and socializing at the Dorchester Memorial Hall.

A highlight of the evening was a mock wedding performed for them and other guests by relatives of Mr. Sauer, and a friend.

Miss Karen Guth, a niece of Ms. Sauer, circulated the guest book.

Guests attending were from Chicago and Woodstock, Illinois, and Wauwatosa, Waukesha, Cudahy, Marathon, Wausau, Auburndale, Marshfield, Stratford, Medford, Milan, Dorchester, Spencer, Unity, Abbotsford, Colby, and surrounding areas.

Mr. and Mrs. Sauer were married October 20, 1945, at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Colby, before Father N.B. Betchta. On Sunday, October 24, they renewed their marriage vows at the same church, after mass, with Father Francis Rushman officiating.
