Caliebe, Mr. and Mrs. George (60th - 1981)

The 60th wedding anniversary celebration for Mr. and Mrs. George Caliebe, Greenwood, was held over the October 10-11 weekend. A dinner for relatives and friends was held on Saturday evening at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Greenwood, followed by a reception at the Caliebe home. The Rev. Sam Kochel offered prayers.

George Caliebe and Mabel Benson were married on October 4, 1921, in Menomonie, Michigan, by the Rev. M.E. Schroeder of Christ Lutheran Church. They lived in Appleton until 1931 and then moved to the city of Greenwood. He did cement work and farmed.

The Caliebes have three children, Grace Caliebe of Skokie, Illinois, Verna Grabler of Greenfield and Earl of Greenwood. They also have seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. (All were present for two grandsons, Robert Caliebe of Chicago and Robert Grabler of Camp Lewis, Washington.)

Other relatives attending the event were Mr./Mrs. Marvin Hastings, Carpentersville, Ill.; Mr./Mrs. Alvin Benson, Fordville, N.D.; Mr./Mrs. Delmar Schwalbach, Black Creek; Marilyn Fletterbak, Fordville, N.D.; and Mrs. Gilbert Reineke, Neenah. Joining them were friends and relatives from Marshfield, Eau Claire and Greenwood.
