Quicker, Mr./Mrs. James (40th - 12 June 1939)
Mr. and Mrs. James Quicker of the town of Lynn observed their fortieth wedding anniversary Wednesday evening, June 12, at the farm home where they spent their entire married life, and all except three of their children: Hilda, Mrs. John Barth, Fremont; Mrs. Edward Jacobs, Milwaukee, and Albert Quicker of San Diego, Calif., were present for the occasion.
Those who had supper with the parents were: Hubert Quicker and family, Neillsville; Mr. and Mrs. Mervin Voight and two children, Neillsville; Mr. and Mrs. Roland Quicker and three children, Granton; Mr. and Mrs. Reinhart Quicker and son and Miss Irene Quicker at home. One daughter died in infancy.
The family was pleasantly surprised by Mrs. Shirley Cooper and daughter, Beverly, of San Diego, Calif., neighbors of the Albert Quicker family in the west, who are visiting in Eau Claire. Knowing that the celebration was to take place that evening, they droved down to have supper with the family and gave them firsthand news and greetings from their son and brother, Albert.
In the evening another surprise took place when a large group of neighbors and friends took advantage of the anniversary event, bringing with them baskets of food and presented Mr. and Mrs. Quicker with a cash gift. The immediate family also remembered their parents with a number of fine presents.
