Wendt, Clara (Marriage - 31 DEC 1919)

A very pretty wedding took place Wednesday, Dec. 31, 1919, at 1:30 p.m., at the home of Mrs. Fred Wendt, Sr., when her daughter, Clara, was united in marriage with Mr. George LaStofka, the ceremony being performed by Rev. D. Grether. Attending the couple were Miss Laura Wendt, sister of the bride, and Louis LaStofka, brother of the groom.

The bride wore a white silk jersey and carried a bouquet of roses and smilax; the bridesmaid was dressed in pink silk taffeta and carrier a bouquet of roses. The rooms were decorated in pink and white. Only relatives were present. After the ceremony a bountiful dinner was served.

The bride was a successful clerk for a number of years in the Wasserburger store, until it was destroyed by fire, when she at once was given a position in the Danger's store, which she filled until her marriage, and was well liked by all who knew her. The groom, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. LaStofka of this city (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.), is a very fine young man. He was a member of Co. A. and left Neillsville when the company was called to the colors and served more than two and a half years, being in the Quartermasters Company in the Thirty-second Division. He is a great favorite among his friends.

The young couple goes to housekeeping at once in a home already prepared by the groom. A host of friends offer them congratulations and best wishes in which we must heartily join.
