Karnitz, Mr./Mrs. Kenneth (Silver – 23 September 1975)

Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Karnitz of Neillsville observed their 25th wedding anniversary Saturday evening,
September 20, with an open house and dance at American Legion Hall.

Among those present for the occasion were well-wishers from Wisconsin Dells, Marshfield, Barron, Wisconsin Rapids, Black River Falls, New Berlin, Wausau, Lake Willa, Il., Granton, Little Chute, Hewitt, Kimberly, Port Edwards, Greenwood, Delafield, Manitowoc, Kaukauna and Neillsville.

The Karnitzes were married September 23, 1950, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Art Dux, in the Town of Pine Valley. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thone Karnitz, rural Neillsville. Rev. Domke, then pastor of Zion American Lutheran churches in the Towns of Grant and Pine Valley, was the officiating clergyman.

The couple’s attendants, both on hand for the observance, were Mrs. Bernard Smetana of Black River Falls, the former Lois Karnitz, and Donald Carl of Port Edwards.

Mr. and Mrs. Karnitz are parents of two children, Kerry of Wausau and Lynette of Neillsville.

Theirs is by no means a marriage of two strangers who chanced to meet. Ken and Virginia Karnitz were classmates in grade school, were confirmed together, and graduated from high school together.
