Winter, Mr. and Mrs. Arno (Golden – 28 February 1978)

Many friends and relatives, including their four children, joined Mr. and Mrs. Arno Winter in a February 22 celebration and worship service at the Zion Lutheran Church, Town of Grant, in honor of the couple’s 50th wedding anniversary.

The Rev. Ernest Hoff, Eau Claire, offered a special prayer of thanks at the 8:00 p.m. service with a social hour and lunch following the event.

On Sunday, February 26, a potluck dinner was held at the Winter home. Decorated anniversary cakes were created by Cathy Winter. Those attending included the couple’s four children and their families, Mr. and Mrs. George (Lola) Eloranta and family, Owen; Mr. and Mrs. Edwin (Lorraine) Porath and family, Owen; Mr. and Mrs. Richard Winter and family, Granton; and Mr. and Mrs. Glen (Ethel) Raplinger and family of Port Edwards. The Winters have 18 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Also attending were Mr. and Mrs. Rod Porth and Chad, Loyal; Mr. and Mrs. Steve Brown, Boulder Junction; Barbara Elmhorst, Madison; and Norma Marg, Ruth Winter, Mr. and Mrs. Celon Winter and Albert Marg, all of Neillsville.

Arno and Nina Winter were united in marriage on February 28, 1928, in an evening ceremony in the church parsonage, officiated by the Rev. John Booth.

Arno was born in 1907 in the town of Lynn while Nina was born the same year in Owen. They farmed for two years in the Town of Lynn, then moved to their present farm in the Town of Grant in 1930. Nina also taught at the Roder School for two years.

Arno is now semi-retired, but he still takes care of the young stock and chickens on the family farm.
