Schuette, Mr. and Mrs. Lester (Golden - 1981)

Lester and Gertrude Schuette, no of Aurora, Colorado, were honored at a golden wedding anniversary celebration on October 11 in Spencer. Lester Schuette and Gertrude Severson were married on November 28, 1931, in Neillsville.

Gertrude was born on January 16, 1908, in the Town of Warner to Sam and Mary Severson. She received her education in Greenwood area schools. Her present inte4rests include teaching art and doing oil and acrylic painting and rosemaling.

The couple retired from farming in 1971. Four years ago, they moved to Colorado to be near their sole child, Mrs. Marian (Jean) Baumann. The Schuettes also have two grandchildren.

The golden anniversary celebration was a surprise for the couple. They arrived, along with their daughter, in the area expecting to attend a silver anniversary party for their nephew and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Eldred Schuette.

The celebration was held at the home of Grace Luntz in Spencer. The event was hosted by Gertrude’s sisters and brother, Grace Luntz and Leida Kurtzheim, both of Spencer; Dorothy Molle, Abbotsford; Angela Severson, Milwaukee; and Hugh Severson, Greenwood.
