Walkama, Mr./Mrs. Eino (Gold – 25 NOV 1975)

Mr. and Mrs. Eino Walkama, Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.), were hosts at a 6 p.m. dinner party November 15, 1975 at Ole Cedar House in Abbotsford, in observance of their 50th wedding anniversary, which they observed Tuesday.

There were 34 relatives present, including their three daughters and families, and grandchildren.

An open house followed the dinner at the Curtiss Community Hall, where a host of relatives and friends spent the evening dancing and socializing. Music was furnished by the Augustine Brothers.

Lunch was served by members of the family.

Eino Walkama, son of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Walkama, and the former Elsie Williams were married November 25, 1925 at Hob Sound Florida.

They farmed in the Town of Hoard (Clark Co.) for 32 years.

They retired and moved in their present home in Curtiss in 1971.

The Walkamas are the parents of three daughters, Mrs. Richard (Mary) Vadnais, Fond du Lac, and Mrs. Herbert (Jean) Goessl and Mrs. Hoard (Jeraldine) Franke, both of Curtiss. They have nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Walkama wore a corsage of yellow roses and Mr. Walkama a yellow boutonniere.

Mrs. Walkama's brother, Clarence, who lives in California, presented the couple with a centerpiece of roses.

A mock wedding was enacted by the grandchildren.
