      "Ernest and Shirley Mae Van Ryzin"

      Ernest and Shirley Mae Van Ryzin of Stratford celebrated their 55th wedding
      anniversary with their niece and her husband, Cheryl and Donald Haupt of
      Auburndale, who were celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary. The two
      couples attended services at Zion Lutheran Church in Stratford. Two large
      vases of flowers were placed on the altar in their honor. Melanie Nikolai
      was the vocal soloist, and Judy Polege was the pianist. Following the church
      service, refreshments and cake were served for the congregation in the
      library lounge. Ernest Van Ryzin and the former Shirley Mae Huebner were
      married June 19, 1948, at Zion Lutheran Church in Stratford, with the Rev.
      T.E. Diemer officiating. Original wedding attendants were Mr. and Mrs.
      Everett Huebner of Marshfield, Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Young of Schofield (now
      deceased), and Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Thums of Fremont. Ernest was born April
      18, 1921, in Stratford, the son of William and Grace Van Ryzin. He is a 1939
      graduate of Stratford High School. He served in the U.S. Coast Guard from
      June 1942 until April 1946, stationed aboard a destroyer escort doing convoy
      duty in the Atlantic and Pacific during World War II. Following military
      service, Ernest was employed at Hub City Jobbing Co., Marshfield. He was
      also a licensed cheesemaker at Huebner's Pride Dairy for 25 years. He
      learned the art of cheesemaking from his father-in-law, Frederick Huebner.
      He then worked eight years as a security guard at Marshfield Clinic until
      his retirement. Following his retirement, he delivered Meals on Wheels five
      days a week for seven years. Shirley Mae was born Sept. 21, 1926, in Loyal,
      the daughter of Frederick and Violet Huebner of Stratford. She is a 1944
      graduate of Stratford High School. Following graduation, she was employed at
      Huebner's Pride Dairy as a bookkeeper and helper until retirement.
      The couple are members of Zion Lutheran Church in Stratford. Ernest sang
      solos for weddings and funerals and is a former choir member. Shirley Mae
      was active for 36 years in the parish's Altar Guild and is also a former
      choir member. Ernest is a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and
      American Legion. He enjoys music and loves to play the piano by ear. He
      played bass fiddle in a country western group called "Sons of the Soil" for
      eight years. He then played bass fiddle with the Russ Nelson Orchestra of
      Marshfield for five years. He also enjoyed traveling, fishing and deer
      hunting. Shirley Mae enjoys music, traveling, baking and flowers. Both
      enjoyed several winters with Shirley Mae's parents in Clearwater, Fla. The
      couple lost a daughter and son in infancy, and are thankful each day that
      the Lord spared Shirley Mae's life at a young age so she and Ernest could
      enjoy 55 years of happiness, sadness and blessings together and pray for
      more years together. They were godparents to six girls and one boy who are
      now all married with families.
