Johnson, Mr./Mrs. Henry (50th Anniv. - 10 Dec. 1938)
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Johnson, residents of Unity since 1890, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Saturday evening, August 12th, at the Trinity Lutheran church where a commemorative program was given commencing at 8:00 o’clock.
The couple was married fifty years last December 10th, but because of the death of their daughter, Mrs. Arthur Edblom, the celebration was postponed until this month, which also marks the anniversary of Mrs. Johnson’s birthday, August 11th.
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson moved to a farm just west of the village in 1890 and made their home there until 1920, when they moved to the village.
Four of their six children are living: Mrs. A. W. Justman, Unity; Carl Johnson, Abbotsford; Mrs. Roy Justman, Unity; and Mrs. Ed. Domer, Oshkosh. One child died in infancy and Mrs. Edblom died in December.
They have 22 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson joined the Trinity Lutheran Church at the time it was organized in 1900. Mrs. Johnson is an honorary member of the Ladies’ Aid Society and is affiliated with the Missionary Society. They are one of the oldest active couples in the church.
They live alone in their little home in the village, doing all their own work and raising a fine garden. Mr. Johnson is 76 and Mrs. Johnson is 77.
