Miss Flora Mae Zierer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Zierer, Phillips, Wisconsin, became the bride of Basil Ray Wenzel, son of Mr. and Mrs. John E. Wenzel, Withee, at a marriage ceremony performed by Justice Bernard Slowey, Phillips, at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 19, at the home of the bride's grandmother, Mrs. Lena Sangkuhl, Phillips.

The bride was attired in a navy blue silk suit trimmed in white and wore black accessories. She was attended by her cousin, Miss Lorraine Zimmerman, who wore a navy blue lace gown.

Franklin Zierer, Jr., brother of the bride, attended the groom.

After the ceremony a wedding dinner was served, with covers laid for 10.

Mr. Wenzel is a graduate of the Withee high school with the class of 1935. He is employed at an oil station in Withee, where the couple will reside.

*a note regarding the marriage year...a date is handwritten on the copy, however, it really resembles an 8 (as in 1987), instead of a 3, but does not coincide with other articles of the scrapbook. Therefore, going by the year or Mr. Wenzel's graduation, I will assume the number is actually a three. :)
