Kay Hulsether Buhrow and Gerald (Jerry) Buhrow are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary. They were married on July 14, 1956 at Bethel Lutheran Church in Madison. They met while they were students at Platteville State Teachers College at a school dance where they could “Swing and Sway with Sammy Kay.” Jerry served a stint in the Army after college and when he was released, they began their married life together in Madison, Wisconsin. Kay taught at Lowell Elementary School and Jerry was in graduate school. After Madison, they moved and taught in several places in Wisconsin: Pulaski, Milton, Hartford, and finally Whitewater, where Jerry became Director of Financial Aid at UW-Whitewater in 1966, retiring in 1992. Kay spent the majority of her career as a 4th grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary School, retiring in 1994.
Jerry and Kay share a love of golf, and spent many summers at Lake Arrowhead in Nekoosa, Wisconsin, living and golfing on the Pines course. They have a friendly competition with holes-in-one. Currently Kay is ahead on the leaderboard with 5 holes in one, and Jerry with 3. The competition continues as they both still enjoy golf in The Villages, Florida, where they currently reside.
In Whitewater they made lifelong friends, and enjoyed camping, vacationing, playing softball, and attending many sporting events with them. In The Villages, Florida, they maintain many of their Whitewater friendships and continue to golf with them regularly.
Jerry and Kay have 4 children: Steven, Laurie (Gary) Bauer, Brad, Brian, two grandchildren, Anneliese (Richie) Wilhelm, and Kurt (Nyruck Syphommarath).
