Seeger, Mr./Mrs. Herman (Gold – NOV 1970)
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Seeger entertained close friends and relatives at their home
on Union Street in honor of his parents' golden wedding anniversary on Saturday
and Sunday, June 27 and 28.
Mr. and Mrs. Herman Seeger were married at Kennan in November 1920, at the home of the bride. After their marriage they farmed at Kennan and Prentice before moving to Nekoosa in 1965.
Hazel Mabie was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.S. Mabie, who were early settlers northeast of Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.). As a young girl she had kept house for her father after the death of her mother.
Herman Seeger was a sawyer in the logging business around Hawkins and Kennan. The Mabie family had moved to Kennan in 1919, where the young couple met and were married the following year.
Mr. Seeger served in the Army of occupation in Germany and France during World War I and was honorably discharged as a corporal. At Prentice he was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Highlighting the events Sunday was a mock wedding put on by the grandnieces and nephews. Two of Mrs. Seeger's, Sisters, Mrs. Arthur Swantes, Santa Rosa, Calif., and Mrs. Henry Birkholz, Long Prairie, Minn., phoned to give their greetings, as they were unable to attend in person.
On Saturday all nine of the children, thirty-one of the thirty-two grandchildren gathered for a picnic honoring the Mr. and Mrs. Seeger. The celebration was held now, as it was more convenient for them than it would have been in November. Only one grandson was absent. He is Pfc. Robert Seeger, Jr., who is stationed in Okinawa.
Their children are Mrs. Ed (Esther) Peters, Zion, Ill.; Robert Seeger, Virginia Beach, Virginia; Alton Seeger, Jump River; Mrs. Wm. (Edna) Wulf, Nekoosa; Mrs. Hebert (Beatrice) Klante, Birnamwood; Fred Seeger, Lake City, Minn.; Mrs. Dwight (Maxine) Zulsberg, Chicago, Ill.; Walter Seeger, Loyal; and Mrs. Alfred (Helen) Saler, Huberius.
Both of the Seegers are active and have good health. He enjoys reading and following football games, while she does sewing and spending time with flowers in her yard.
