Mr. and Mrs. Peter Quist of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary Monday of this week, when approximately 100 of their relatives and friends gathered at their home in the afternoon to extend to them hearty congratulations and well wishes. Nearly all of those present were members of the congregation of the Danish Lutheran Church. Mr. and Mrs. Quist have been residents of Withee for a great many years, and were among the pioneers coming to this vicinity at the beginning of the Danish colony which was started there.
During the afternoon there were speeches by the Rev. M. Mikkelsen, pastor of the Danish Lutheran Church, and by Robert Johnson, president of the Danish Society, and special singing. The church society gave to Mr. and Mrs. Quist a very beautiful basket of flowers. The home was beautifully decorated with streamers, roses and other flowers. Late in the afternoon coffee, ice cream and cake were served.
Relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Quist, who were present at the anniversary, were Mr. and Mrs. Jens Stigsen and son, Thorvald, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Axelsen and children of Withee. Mr. and Mrs. Atkinson Sr. and Mr. and Mrs. Atkinson Jr. and children of St. Paul, and two sons, who are at home.
Mr. Quist is 84 years of age, and his wife is 86, and both are in their usual good health. The community at large is congratulating Mr. and Mrs. Quist for their fifty years of happy wedded life.
