Former Terry pastor and wife to celebrate 70th

  The family of Rudolph “Rudy” and Marie Hauck announce the upcoming 70th wedding anniversary of the couple.  

In 1941, a young, handsome Rudy Hauck, a South Dakota dirt farmer, swept a beautiful town girl, Marie Reidinger, off her feet and down the wedding aisle. In a country church near Tyndall, S.D. on August 20, 1941, Rudy and Marie married.
Over the next 18 years, Rudy and Marie grew more than crops on their little farm. Michael was born in 1942 followed by Robert in 1943. Son James came along in 1948. Sons Timothy and Ronald were added in 1951 and 1953. A final son, William, was born in 1956. A daughter, Kathleen, was added to the house full of sons in 1959.  
Seventy years later Mike, Bob and Rita, Bonnie (James died in 1989), Tim and Mona, Ron and Julie, Bill and Suzy, Kathy and Tom along with their families (19 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren to Rudy and Marie) are extending an invitation to help the couple celebrate this milestone by remembering Rudy and Marie with cards, notes, pictures or other items of your choosing. Please no presents. 
Please send your well wishes by August 19 to  Bill Hauck, 6812 Eastridge Road in Black Hawk, S.D. 57718.  Congratulatory notes can also be emailed to or posted on Facebook to Bill’s account. 
These will be presented to Rudy and Marie on August 20, 2011 at a family gathering in Spearfish, S.D.
