Rowe, Mr. and Mrs. Milford (Golden – 31 May 1978)

Celebrating their golden wedding anniversary with an open house, Sunday, May 28, were Milford and Irene Rowe, Rt. 1 Granton. The couple was married on May 31, 1928, in Neillsville by the Rev. Lambright. Vera Hales and the late Clarion Counsell were their witnesses.

The Rowe family, consisting of a daughter, Mrs. Gilbert (Shirley) Ahlborn of Minocqua, a son, Donald of Granton, their spouses and children all attended services at the York United Methodist Church. Irene has been a pianist at the church for several years.

The couple received flowers for the celebration with Irene’s being a white orchid and Milford’s a gold carnation boutonniere, gifts from the grandchildren.

Milford was born August 30, 1902, to Mr. and Mrs. Walter Rowe. Irene was born September 27, 1899, to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Counsell. The couple are in good health and still reside on the home farm with Milford assisting with some of the field work. Irene is an active member of the women’s group of the York Center church, the So & Sew Homemakers Club and keeps busy with housework and fancy work.
