Kurth, Irene (Marriage - 19 March 1930)

A pretty home wedding took place Wednesday evening, March 19, at the home of the Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Kurth in the town of Grant, when their second daughter Irene was united in marriage with Mr. Clifford Rifft, Rev. J. G. Buth of the Grant Lutheran Church officiating. Only relatives and close friends were in attendance.

The bride was attended by her sisters Miss Edna Kurth, who acted as maid of honor and Miss Norma Kurth, who came from St. Paul to attend the wedding. The groom was attended by Mr. Don Vaughan, a close friend of Ladysmith and Mr. Hilton Kurth a cousin of the bride.

The bride wore a gown of yellow georgette, formal trimmed with rhinestones. She also wore a head band of rhinestones and carried a bouquet of white roses, white sweet peas, lilies of the valley and baby breath. The groom wore a dark suit.

The parlor in which the ceremony took place was prettily decorated in yellow and white, with white bells; the dining room was decorated in pink and white. A bountiful wedding supper was served after the ceremony.

The bride was born and brought up in the town of Grant, completed the rural course in the Kurth School and graduated from Neillsville high school in the class of 1926. She attended St. Paul Luther College for two years, worked a year in St. Paul and is now employed at Ladysmith. She is a young lady of pleasing personality, making friends readily, is efficient in her work and both in a social and business way is very popular.

The groom was brought up at Ethan, South Dakota, graduated from the high school there, and spent two years at the South Dakota Sate College in Brookings. He then entered the employ of the J. C. Penny Co. at Worthington, Minn., remaining here until last June when he was transferred to Ladysmith, where he is now located. During his residence here he made many friends by his prompt attention to business and his gentlemanly manner of meeting and dealing with people.

The young couple will return to Ladysmith, which will be their home for the present. The Press offers best wishes and congratulations.

Sunday evening previous to the wedding, a large number of relatives and friends gathered at the Kurth home and gave a shower in honor of the prospective bride and groom. Many useful and beautiful gifts were presented.
