The 45th anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Schneider, 3025 Glenview road, observed Sunday, Nov. 21, was the occasion of a delightful surprise staged by their eight children, five daughters-in-law and three sons-in-law, and participated in by twenty-eight grandchildren, the oldest of whom is now 17 [caption]

It is not often that after so long a period so many sons and daughters are permitted to gather in the old home and enjoy so pleasant an occasion. The sons are as follows: Joseph, Philip and Anton, Jr., all of Wilmette; Lawrence of Glenview and Adolph of Evaston. The daughters are Mrs. Lucy Schwind of Wheeling; Mrs. Helen Frier of Niles Center, and Mrs. Marie Hohs [unclear] of Morton Grove.

Mr. Schneider was born within a block of where he now lives on January 14, 1986, and has lived in Wilmette all of his life. Mrs. Schneider was born in Chicago on May 8, 1871. They were married at St. Joseph's church on November 21, 1892.

A feature of the anniversary observance was a family dinner, partaken of by the honored couple, their eight children and their mates and the twenty eight grand-children, forty-six in all.
