Woodruff, Ruth (15 JUL 1936)

The lawn of the Mrs. John Fisher Sr. Park was the setting of a mid summer wedding, Wednesday after noon July 15, 1936, at 2 o’clock, when her grand daughter Miss Ruth Woodruff, became the bride of Harvey Thomas of Portage, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Thomas, Portage.

The guests consisting of members of the immediate families and a few close friends assembled on the lawn.

To the strains of the "Bridal Chorus" from Lohengrin, with Mrs. August Mueller at the organ, the bridal party descended the steps of the home. The bride marched to the arbor, accompanied by her brother John who gave her to marriage, to be met by the groom and his attended Earl Kabele, nephew of the maid of honor Miss Adeline Woodruff, sister of the bride, attired in yellow, and the bridesmaids Katherine and Mildred Kabele, nieces of the groom and Martha Woodruff, Milwaukee, sister of the bride, who wore yellow, powder blue, aqua blue respectively. Each had a wrist bouquet of snap dragons and sweet peas.

The bride’s gown was of white satin and lace, trimmed with a bouquet of gardenias and orange blossoms, worn by her mother on her wedding day which occurred 28 years ago on that day. She wore a train veil held in place with a coronet attractively beaded with pearls, carried by Selma Krahn. Her shower bouquet was of pink roses and white snap dragons. The groom was attired in navy blue. The groom’s attendant wore a brown suit.

Mrs. Erwin Farnsworth with Mrs. Aug. Mueller at the organ sang "God Will Take Care of You." The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. Gamb, the resident pastor, pronouncing the sacred words which united the happy couple.
