Fecker, Leona M. (Marriage - 28 JUL 1928)

A pretty wedding took place at the St. Mary's Parsonage last Saturday, July 28, 1928, when Miss Leona Marie Fecker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Fecker, became the bride of Mr. Ervin H. Schmike, New London, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Schmike, Rev. Lachnit reading the marriage ceremony. Miss Helen Fecker was bridesmaid and Miss Ruth Fuhrman maid of honor. The groom was attended by Ray Schmike and Harry Fecker.

The bride wore a beautiful dress of white crepe back satin in bouffant style with tiered skirt of silk lace set with rhinestones, and also veil with wreath and carried a beautiful shower bouquet of roses, carnations and sweet peas.
