Lepke, Mr./Mrs. August (Gold Anniv - 11 MAY 1915)
On Tuesday August Lepke and Johanna, his wife, celebrated their golden wedding in a most fitting manner. A ceremony at the Catholic Church at 9 a.m. was followed by a gathering at the home of a host of relatives and friends, the Catholic Ladies Society attending as a body.
There was a bounteous dinner and a happy social time. Many fine presents were given, most of them being gold.
Mr. and Mrs. Lepke were married in Germany and came to this country in 1872, making their home in Neillsville, Clark County ever since. Mr. Lepke is 77 years old and his good wife is 72. Together they have walked the road of life for fifty years and shared their joys and burdens. They are good and worthy people and are respected by all who know them. They have reared to manhood four sons, Frank of Neillsville, Mike of Waupaca, John of Richland Center and Joseph in Montana; also one daughter, Mrs. Matt Resong, living northwest of Neillsville. We join with other friends in wishing them still many years of happy life.
