Fricke, Zura (Marriage - 20 DEC 1920)

Mr. Leland Forman and Miss Zura Fricke were married Monday evening, Dec. 20, 1920, at the home of her cousin, Mrs. A.L. Devos. Rev. Frank Zimmermann, Presbyterian minister from Marshfield officiated. Mrs. Devos acted as matron of honor and Mr. Devos as best man. About thirty relatives and friends were present, and a fine supper was served.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler Forman of this city (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.) He grew to manhood here, graduated from Neillsville High School in 1912, taught country school, attended Lawrence College two years and became high school principal at Glenbulah. He entered the army and saw over a year of service, several months of which he was in France. Since his return he has done some work in the University and is still continuing correspondence work. He has a good position with the Fairbanks-Morse Co. at Beloit. He is a young man of fine character, goo education and a musician of rare ability. As a student, teacher and in all position in life he has filled, he has made a fine reputation.

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Clara Fricke. She came here when a little girl, her father the late Oscar Fricke of Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., being elected Register of Deeds. She graduated from Neillsville High School in the same class as the bridegroom; graduated from the State University in 1916, and has since taught English in the Baraboo High School, where she has been very successful. She is a young lady of rare talent and fine personality.

The young couple will begin housekeeping in the near future in Beloit, the bride continuing to teach in Baraboo until her successor is appointed. These young people whose aims and ideals have grown together during their school days and later work in life, seem highly fitted for a happy and efficient future. For many years the writer has felt a special interest in their welfare and most hopefully offers his good wishes for them in their new life.
