August & Clara Oesau Struck's Anniversary
Relatives and friends from New Holstein and Elkhart Lake last Thursday
evening surprised Mr. and Mrs. August Struck of Elkhart Lake in honor
of their golden wedding anniversary.
Mrs. Struck, the former Miss Clara Oesau, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Claus Oesau, was born at New Holstein August 31, 1870, while Mr. Struck,
also of New Holstein was born April 27, 1869, and the couple was married
at the Oesau home October 21, 1893, and the first ten years they resided
at Kiel, where Mr. Struck was a painter. Later they moved to Elkhart Lake,
and for 12 years they resided in which is now the George Fenton place. Mr.
Struck conducted a tavern, and then built their present home. For many
years Mr. Struck was employed as painter for the Lauer Paint Company in
that village, but retired a number of years ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Struck had one daughter, Ovella, who died at the age of eight
Both Mr. and Mrs. Struck are enjoying good health now, although Mrs. Struck
fell and broke a hip last February, but is now able to be up and around
again and do her own housework.
