Lawrence and Agnes (Vondera) Lindemann, Villa Ridge, celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary this month. Mr. Lindemann and the former Miss Vondera were united in marriage Jan. 8, 1949, at St. Mary of Perpetual Help Church in Villa Ridge.
The snowstorm on Saturday, Jan. 12, forced plans for a special blessing at St. Mary’s 5 p.m. Mass and a family celebration afterward to be canceled.
Agnes had been a homemaker and Lawrence is retired from the Chrysler Corporation.
Their children are Ruth and Gary Miller, House Springs; Ken and Michelle Lindemann, Villa Ridge; Rick and Suzie Lindemann, Washington; Judy Rollins, Villa Ridge; John and Susie Lindemann, Villa Ridge; Mary and Ronnie Hirth, Pacific; William and Racine Lindemann, Villa Ridge; and Michael and Jennifer Lindemann, Villa Ridge.
They have 20 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
