Mr. and Mrs. WAYNE ZIELKE

ANTWERP – Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Zielke will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on Dec. 25.

Wayne Zielke and Mary Jane Gilbert were married on Dec. 25, 1952, at the St. John Lutheran Church in Briceton.

The couple enjoyed raising their family on a farm just north of Forder’s Bridge. Wayne also worked as a commercial welder at Challenge Cook Brothers in Bryan. Mary Jane retired from Antwerp Exchange Bank and prior to that was employed by Antwerp Local Schools.

Over the years, the couple loved spending time camping at Silver Lake, Ind, taking trips to Florida in the winter and spending time with their family.

They are the parents of two sons, Jerry (Sue) and John (Darlene) Zielke, both of Antwerp; a daughter, Nancy (Del) McClain of Monroeville, Ind. and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

They will celebrate their anniversary with a Christmas family celebration hosted by their children and families.
