Fink, Esther (Marriage - 22 June 1937)

Baskets of Easter Lilies, tied with large bows of Madonna blue ribbon, ferns, and tall lighted tapers banked the altar of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Bloomer before which Miss Esther Fink, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry M. Fink, Bloomer, and Richard Anthony Becker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Becker, exchanged wedding vows on June 22. The Rev. Paul Pitzenberger read the service at 9 a.m.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white pleated tulle beneath a Madonna blue satin coat, fashioned on princess lines with a long train. Her veil, which fell from a wreath of orange blossoms, was the same color as her satin coat. In her hands she clasped an ivory prayed book.

Mrs. E. Carter Logan, Louisville, Ky., attended her sister as matron of honor. She wore a French print gown with matching slippers and bag. Her shantung hat was white, and her corsage was fashioned of gardenias. Norman Sarschner of Brillion was the best man.

Mrs. Fink attended her daughter’s wedding in a brown chiffon gown while Mrs. Becker, mother of the bridegroom, wore a dress of printed chiffon. Both had corsages of gardenias. A wedding breakfast was served to members of the immediate families following the ceremony.

Mr. and Mrs. Becker, who have returned from a brief wedding trip, are now at home at 260 Langdon St. The bride was graduated from a teachers college and has been a teacher for the past eight years. Mr. Becker is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and a member of Delta Chi fraternity. Wisconsin State Journal.
