Sondgeroth, Dorothy (19 SEP 1935)

Thursday morning, Sept. 19th, 1935 at 8 o’clock, Holy Cross Catholic Church, Mendota, Ill., was the scene of a most impressive ceremony, when the lives of Miss Dorothy Sondgeroth and Mr. Ray Possley were joined in the holy bonds of matrimony at solemn high mass. Reverend Wissing was celebrant. Rev. Father H. Vincent O’Brien, deacon and Rev. Father Hahn, sub-deacon. The church was attractively decorated with cut flowers and ferns.

As the wedding march was rendered, the maid of honor, Miss Lenore Possley, sister of the bridegroom, and the bride on the arm of her father, proceeded to the altar where they met the bridegroom and the best man, Virgil Sondgeroth, brother of the bride.

The bride was lovely in a beautiful gown of white velvet with a train and a new blush tulle veil and carried a bride’s bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Possley wore a gown of French violet velvet with accessories to harmonize and carried a bouquet of yellow roses. The mother of the bride and mother of the groom wore corsages of sweet peas.

Emmett Sondgeroth, bother of the bride, and Roger Possley, brother of the groom, were ushers.

Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served to 26 guests in the Red Room at Hotel Kaskakia in La Salle, Ill.

The bride is well known in Mendota and is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. V. Sondgeroth of that city.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. N.E. Possley of Thorp, Clark Co., Wis., but for the past several years has been residing in Mendota Milk Products Co. Mr. Possley attended Eau Claire, Wis., business college for two years and also Tri-State College of Angola, Indiana for one year.

The happy couple left Thursday afternoon on a honeymoon trip which they plan to spend in Canada, New York, Washington, and Florida, expecting to be gone 6 weeks.
