table, was made by the bride’s sisters and sister-in-law, Mrs. Lydia Lau,
Mrs. Loretta Porsch and Mrs. Grayce Wetrosky.
Honors of serving were accorded to Misses Genevieve and Dolores Mathwig of
Sioux City and hostesses were Mrs. Will Langle and Miss Frieda Rosenmerkel.
The young people left on a honeymoon trip and on their return home will
reside with the bridegroom’s parents until March 1 when they will establish
their own home on a farm west of Kingsley.
