Sharratt, Genevieve (Marriage - 9 June 1931)

The marriage of Mr. Albert Sheckleman and Miss Genevieve Sharratt was solemnized at St. Mary’s church in Neillsville, Tuesday morning, June 9, Rev. Peter Weber, officiating. About 50 friends and relatives were in attendance.

Mendelssohn’s Wedding March was played by Mrs. Art Wanger. Miss Laura Dyer of Fond du Lac, cousin of the bride was bridesmaid, and Mr. Gordon Sharratt, brother of the bride was best man. The bride wore a dress of pale blue satin fashioned with high waist line, long sleeves, long skirt with graceful train, and slippers to match the gown. Her veil was of blue tulle arranged from a small cap caught on the left side with orange blossoms. She also wore a necklace of seed pearls and carried a shower bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley, with streamers of white satin, the flowers being held in place by white tulle. The bridesmaid wore a frock of printed canary silk and hat to match, and carried a mixed vari-colored bouquet, held by white ribbon.

After the ceremony a wedding dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ezra Sharratt, in the town of Washburn, at which there were fifty guests present.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Sheckleman of Loyal. He graduated from the Loyal high school and later from LaCrosse Business College, but intends to follow farming. He is a young man of high character, industry and intelligence. The bride completed the rural schools in the town of Washburn, graduated from Neillsville high school in 1926, and from Mercy Hospital Training School for Nurses in Chicago in 1929, and has since followed her profession with marked success.

The bride and groom left on a wedding trip to Chicago, Milwaukee, Beaver Dam, and Benton Harbor, Mich., and on their return will live on the groom’s farm in the town of Loyal. They begin their new life with every promise of success and happiness, and the good wishes of a host of friends.
