Lezotte, Mr./Mrs. Glenn (Golden - 1975)

The Star Lodge Motel in Loyal was the setting last Sunday afternoon for the golden wedding anniversary open house of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Lezotte, Sr., of Loyal, and former Neillsville residents.

Fall flowers in golden hues decorated the tables. The main table was centered with a wedding cake. Mrs. Marie Vajgrt poured.

The Lezottes moved to Loyal in 1974 after living in Neillsville for 23 years. Mr. Lezotte worked at Nelson Muffler until his retirement in 1969. They are members of the Loyal Methodist Church.

While in Neillsville, Mrs. Lezotte had taken care of older people. She attended the first class for nurses aids held at the new Neillsville Memorial Hospital and was employed there for a number of years.

Mrs. Lezotte, the former Eva Haberl, was born in Sparta and received her education in Merrillan. Her parents were Myrtle and Fred Haberl.

Better known as “Bud,” Mr. Lezotte was born in Neillsville where he received his education. His parents were Lydia and Anthony Lezotte.

After their marriage in Winona, Mn., October 15, 1925, they lived in Merrillan, where he owned and operated a garage for 20 years.

Both take care of a garden and he enjoys fishing and hunting in his spare time. She likes to arrange flowers and take care of terrariums but cooking and housework are her favorite occupations.

They are parents of two children, Mrs. Harold (Lorraine) Francis of Loyal, and Glenn Lezotte, Jr., of Stoughton. There are seven grandchildren and 11-great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Laura (Simenson) Gee, one of the original attendants, was present for the celebration. A granddaughter, Linda, and her husband, Dr. Gordon Gross, and son, Eric, of Scottsdale, Az., flew here for the event. Other friends and relatives came from Wausau, Neenah, Beloit, Neillsville, Merrillan, Janesville, Alma Center, Stoughton and Loyal.
