Rabenstein, Edna R. (Marriage - 31 DEC 1903)

A very pleasant surprise given to a party of guests assembled New Year?s eve at the residence of Editor C. Rabenstein. It has been the custom for some fifteen years for a number of friends of the family to assemble at Mr. Rabenstein?s on New Year?s eve, which is also Mrs. Rabenstein?s birthday, to celebrate the occasion. Last Thursday nigh a goodly company had gathered as usual, with no intimation that a wedding was to be part of the program. The eldest daughter Miss Edna Ryan Rabenstein was home, ostensibly for a holiday vacation. Just at six o?clock Judge Jacques, who was one of the party, arose with a book in his hand, as if awaiting something, and almost at the same moment the bride came down the stairs, was met by her father, and the groom, Mr. Warren E. Woodward of Elgin, Ill., was ushered in, having timed his arrival exactly to suit the plan. Mr. Rabenstein escorted the couple into the presence of Judge Jacque, who performed the ceremony. The surprise of the guests on the whole added to the pleasure of the occasion. A bountiful supper was served and at midnight the young couple took the midnight train East. They will be at home in Elgin, Feb. 1st. The bride was brought up in Neillsville, Clark County and is a young lady of whom this place may be proud. After completing a course in the Elgin Business College she accepted a position with the Elgin National Watch Co., which she has filled creditably for two years. The groom is, of course, a stranger to the people here. He holds a responsible position at the Northern Hospital of Illinois and is a young man of fine appearance. He is entitled to congratulations, and both bride and groom have the hearty good wishes of the people of Neillsville.
