Helsten, Mr.& Mrs. Fred (Golden - 20 Nov. 1948)
Let’s travel back 50 years to November 20th, the wedding day of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Helsten of Rockford, Illinois, former residents of Spencer, Wisconsin.
This momentous occasion was relived last Saturday evening at the Trinity Lutheran Church, Unity, when a reception was held in honor of the bride and groom. The guests of honor received many telegrams and greetings of congratulations from their many friends. Quite a reunion was held between Fred and Herman Helsten, who are brothers, and hadn’t seen each other for thirty years.
Acting as Master of Ceremonies was Rev. J. A. Olson. The program consisted of piano and vocal solos and a reading. Impromtu responses were given by relatives and guests.
The church parlors were appropriately decorated in gold for the occasion, with chrysanthemums predominating. A beautiful tiered wedding cake centered the table with gold candlebra at each end.
Luncheon was served to approximately 150 guests. Pouring were Mrs. Max Woodkey and Mrs. Rudy Anderson. Assisting with the cake was Mrs. John Johnson. Receiving guests were Mrs. Hilda Krueger and Mrs. R. W. Elander.
Out of town guests attending were Mr. and Mrs. Paul Luedtke, Wausau; Dr. and Mrs. Schimmel and Mrs. A. Carlson, Whitewater; Mrs. Norman Helterhoff, Milwaukee; Mrs. Hugh Haight, Neillsville; and Mrs. Esther Callahan, Spencer.
The immediate relatives here for the occasion were Mrs. H. A. Krueger, Mr. and Mrs. G. Nelson, Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Helsten, Delmore, Kenneth and Edwin Helsten, all of Rockford; Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Elander, and Sandra Jo of Freeport, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Helsten and Jean, Loyd and Robert Helsten, Spencer; Mr. and Mrs. Herman Helsten, Cheboygan, Michigan.
We, the staff of this newspaper, join their many friends in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Helsten many more years of happy wedded life.
