Kleibenstein, Mabel (Marriage - 2 MAY 1917)

A pretty home wedding took place Wednesday, May 2, 1917, at the country residence of Mr. and Mrs. John Kleibenstein Jr., when their daughter Mabel was united in marriage to Mr. Otto Janke of Owen, Clark County, Wis., at five o'clock in the afternoon.

The marriage service was read by Rev. Boeger, pastor of the German Lutheran Church, in the presence of about fifty relatives and friends.

The bride was attended by her sister Grace and the groom by his brother Robert. The bride's gown was white voile trimmed with exquisite lace. She carried a bridal bouquet of roses. The bridesmaid wore a gown of white voile.

The house was decorated in pink and white carnations, sweet peas and roses being used. The young couple received many valuable and beautiful gifts from their friends.

The groom's father and brother were here from Owen for the wedding.

An elaborate wedding dinner was served by Mrs. Kleibenstein, such as has made the Kleibenstein home famous.

During the evening many friends assembled at the home to offer congratulations to the young people.

They leave Monday for Owen, where they will make their home. Mr. Janke is manager of a cheese plant for the Curtiss Produce Co. (Platteville County News)
