Kurz, Bertha K. (4 NOV 1931)

The marriage of Miss Bertha Katherine Kurz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Kurz, town of Sherman, Clark county to Henry August Schendel town of Easton also of Clark county was performed Nov. 4th at 2 o’clock in the afternoon by the Rev. August Quandt in Salem Lutheran Church at Veefkind.

The bride was beautifully attired in a brocade satin gown with over lace, and a long veil draped in a cap shaped effect which hung in graceful folds over the ankle length dress.

She was attended by her sister Miss Frieda Kurz who acted as maid of honor and she wore a peach georgette dress of ankle length while the groom’s sister, Miss Irene Schendel also attended the bride. She was attired in pea green satin. Both attendants carried bouquets of pink and white carnations. The bride’s flowers which she carried were in the form of a shower bouquet of roses and swansonia.

Following the ceremony a reception was given the young couple and the guests at the home of the bride’s parents, where the rooms were prettily decorated with pink and white crepe paper streamers. Only immediate relatives attended the reception and covers were laid for 30 at the 5:30 supper which was served. Guests from away were Mr. and Mrs. Leo Schendel and family of Wilton, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Schendel and family and Miss Florence Schendel, Milwaukee and Miss Irene Schendel of Chicago.

The newly weds left for a two weeks wedding trip to Milwaukee, Chicago and Dundee, Ill. On their return they will be at home with the groom’s parents near Greenwood. Tribune Correspondent
