Thorn, Margaret (Marriage - 7 NOV 1917)

Wednesday morning, Nov. 7, 1917, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in this city (Colby, Wis.), Miss Margaret Thorn, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Matt Thorn Sr., and Mr. Ray Rifenberg, of Waupun, were married by Rev. Henry Lachnit.

The church had been beautifully decorated for the occasion by the young ladies of St. Mary's Congregation and the ceremony was attended by a great many. The church male quartet sang for the High Mass.

The bride was attired in white crepe de chine and bridal veil, and carried a bouquet of white chrysanthemums. Miss Rose Thorn, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid and wore a gown of yellow silk with picture hat to match. Mr. Mike Malone of Milwaukee acted as best man.

The young couple will leave for Waupun tomorrow, where Mr. Rifenberg has a farm, and take with them the heartiest congratulations and best wishes of our whole community.
