Ystad, Ralph/Eleanor (50th anniversary-25 October 1933)

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Ystad of Greenwood, who were married October 25, 1933 in Winona, Minnesota, celebrated their golden wedding July 30 to enable all the children to attend. The reception, buffet dinner and dance were at the Loyal American Legion Hall.

Ystad, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hans (Jorgina) Ystad, was born at Greenwood and attended schools in that area. His wife, the former Eleanor Olson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John (Thora) Olson, was born in Neenah. She graduated in 1931 from Greenwood High School.

The Ystads farmed on Route 3, Greenwood, from 1935 to 1968, moving to the City of Greenwood in 1969. They are members of Our Savior's Lutheran Church.

Their children are Neil of Spanaway, Washington; Ronald of Nekoosa; Roger of Baraboo; and Gwen, West Allis. There are 14 grandchildren.

Attendants at their wedding were Bernard Bragstad and Jeanette Ystad Basile.
