The 50th Wedding Anniversary of Lovell Birmeier and Lila Richards. An interesting note, this was the first time the couple celebrated their wedding anniversary. In 1925 while they were away for the weekend in Deadwood, South Dakota getting married, Lila’s mother (Elizabeth Hodges) passed away after being ill. Lila was reluctant to leave her sick mother. However, her mother persuaded her to go and marry the man she loved.
