On Sunday morning, Feb. 16, 1947, a solemn Mass was celebrated in honor of the Golden Wedding Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. John Kowieski at St. Hedwig’s Church at Thorp (Clark Co.), Wis. The altar was beautifully decorated with yellow and white flowers and golden bouquets. The children, in a body with the bridal couple, received Holy Communion as an offering to the Sacred Heart.
Mr. Kowieski and Julia Krynski were united in marriage on Feb. 16, 1897 in Poland. They came to this country in 1901 and settled on a farm in the Town of Withee. Nine years ago they retired from active farming and moved into the Village of Thorp, which has since been their home. Seven children were born to this union, all of whom were here to attended the Golden Wedding fetivities.
After the Mass the family and friends proceeded to the Kowieski home where a blessing was given by Father Piekarski. Then a bountiful dinner and supper were served. The afternoon and evening was spent visiting and playing cards.
All of the seven children were present: Nick, Joseph and Frank of Chicago, Victoria, Paul, Helen of Thorp and Michael of Greenwood. 19 of the 25 grandchildren helped the grandparents celebrate the occasion.
