Pedersen, Carol/Ruth (Silver – 4 Jun 1978)

Carl and Ruth Pedersen, Owen, were joined by a large group of friends and relatives at the celebration in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary, held at the Nazareth Lutheran Hall on Sunday afternoon, June 4, 1978.

Loraine King and Beverly McComb, both of Owen, prepared the delicious Swiss steak banquet dinner in honor of the occasion, and were helped by waitresses, Kathy Cardinal and Sandra Maninen, both of Withee, and Randy King and Andrew Fannila on the dishes and other hand work, both from Owen.

Carl Pedersen was born in Denmark and came to this country as a boy of 16. His folks set up farming and moved into the area in the early years of this century. Later Carl stated farming on his own, owning a farm north of Owen, near the present watershed project. Part of his land, which he sold to the county, is part of the project.

Ruth is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Picus, who many will remember had a well-known general store in Owen, located in what is now Pogo’s. Ruth has a daughter, Mrs. Art (Naomi) Brissette of Bethel, Connecticut.
