Johnson, Mr. / Mrs. Albert (Golden - 14 May 1948)
It is a happy time in the home and hearts of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Johnson today, May 14th, as they celebrate their golden wedding day. It means fifty years of living and loving, of enduring and overcoming the problems of life that confronted them through the years. Holding each others hand as they look toward the sunset, there’s a prayer of thankfulness in their hearts that God blessed them on their way together.
They were married in a Lutheran parsonage back in Chicago and lived in the city about seven years before coming to Wisconsin where they bought a tract of land in the Town of Unity and through the years made a comfortable and modern home. They sold their farm and have resided in the village for three years, purchasing the house owned by Otto Pereschke.
Back in 1908 when Rev. Hiller was pastor of the Swedish Church, they became members and have been faithful members ever since.
The groom is 77 and the bride is 75. They have one daughter, Mrs. John W. Johnson (Signe); 5 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.
The house is decorated with white bells and golden streamers and open house will be held from two until four this afternoon. A dinner for relatives and old friends will be served in the evening.
The Register joins the many local friends of Mr. and Mrs. Johnson in extending congratulations and best wishes for many more happy years of wedded life.
