Wedding Wednesday - Mr and Mrs Wilbert Dart's Golden Anniversary

"Golden Wedding - Mr. and Mrs. Wilbert Dart, rt. 3, Luxemburg, recently observed their 50th wedding anniversary.  They have one daughter, one granddaughter and one great-grandson."

Wilbert is my husband's great great uncle.  He was born on February 18, 1897 in Wisconsin and is the son of Eugene and Josephine Dart nee Hermans and was the youngest of 12 known children.    Wilbert married Alice Delveaux at the end of December 1919 or the beginning of January 1920 (I found a website which noted a license issued on 02JAN1920, so I need to check into this some more), and had one daughter, Bertha.

Wilbert served in the Army during WWI.  He enlisted/was drafted on August 8, 1918 and was discharged on September 2, 1919.  Just over a year of service.  He died on June 11, 1984 in Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.

Alice Delveaux was born on Jun 4, 1893 (parents unknown) in Wisconsin.  She died on December 15, 1976 in Luxemburg, Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.  Alice and Wilbert are buried in the Shrine of the Good Shepherd Mausoleum in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
