Schlinsog, Mabel E. (1 JUN 1937)

Trinity Lutheran Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Tuesday afternoon, June 1st, 1937, when Mabel E. Schlinsog and Leonard R. Jensen were united in holy matrimony by Rev. Geo. Heilman. Mendelssohn’s Wedding March was played by Mrs. G. Heilman, organist, to the strains of which the bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, to be met by the groom proceeding from the vestry. They were attended by the bride’s cousin, Miss Hilda Kreissig, as maid of honor and Erling Jensen, younger brother of the groom as best man. Other attendants were Misses Ella Kreissig and Mildred Jensen as bridesmaids, and Arnold Jensen and Michael Petranovich as ushers and groomsmen.

The bride wore a veil, also a white satin and lace gown with a train. Her maids were gowned in light ink, dark blue and peach. The groom wore a dark blue suit, his best man a suit of oxford gray, the ushers brown and blue respectively.

The bride is well known in her home community, her father, William Schlinsog, being chairman of the Town of Mead for the past six years. Her mother is the daughter of a pioneer settler of the same town. After attending the Braun Settlement School, she attended the high school of Northwester University at Chicago and graduated from the Moser Business College. For a number of years she was employed by the Illinois Bell Telephone Co. Two years ago she returned to her home where she has since been.

The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Jens A. Jensen of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.). He attended school in his home community and several years ago graduated from Stevens Point Teachers College. The past two years he has been teaching in the Braun Settlement School.

A reception for a hundred guests was held at the Schlinsog home after the ceremony. The bridal couple left for a trip to the Black Hills and other western points. Upon their return they will operate the Schlinsog farm.

The Gleaner joins their many local friends in extending congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy wedded life.
