Williams, Mildred (Marriage - 31 May 1939)

Miss Mildred Williams, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Williams, of the town of Washburn and Albert Zank, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Zank of the town of Pine Valley, were united in marriage at 2 o’clock p.m. May 31, at the home of the bride’s parents, Rev. E. P. Stone of the M. E. Church performing the double-ring ceremony in the presence of 30 guests. The bride was given away by her father.

The living room was made beautiful with plants, cut flowers and bridal wreath. Mendelssohn’s wedding march was played by Miss Bertha Hardrath of Riplinger.

The bride wore a gown of white double net with a lace jacket and veil. The low neckline was ornamented with a pearl necklace. She carried a bouquet of lilies tied with satin ribbon. Miss Edna Keuer, her attendant, wore a light blue net dress.

Her bouquet was made up of blue bachelor buttons and pink gladioli. The groom wore a dark double-breasted suit. His attendant, Kenneth Olson, wore a navy blue suit, both wearing boutonnières of pink roses. Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Zank, mothers of the bride and groom, wore silk print dresses. The bride’s going away outfit was a royal blue, three-piece suit with accessories.

The bride was graduated from Neillsville High School and the teachers training department and has taught school for eight years, attending summer sessions at Stevens Point State Teacher’s college and is now employed at the Soo Grove state graded school at Riplinger, teaching the upper grades. She is capable and refined, one of the county’s most successful rural instructors.

Mr. Zank is employed as a mechanic at the Deep Rock Service Station and operates an American Store Dairy company milk route in the towns of Grant and York. He is an ambitious young man, courteous of manner and pains-taking in his work.

The couple left on a month’s wedding trip to the west coast, visiting such points of interest as Yellowstone National park, the Black Hills, the Rose Festival at Portland, Oregon, and the exposition at San Francisco. Returning home the later part of June, they will be at home at 265 West Fifth Street, Neillsville, Wis.

Supper was served at 4:30 at the home of the bride’s parents. Misses Lou Qualley and Dorothy Schultz were the waitresses.

The dining room decorations were blue and white. A beautiful wedding cake served as the center piece with tall white tapers in blue holders place at either side.

The guests included the immediate families and a few close friends: Mr. and Mrs. Williams and Daughter, Leona, Louis and Frank Zank, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Qualley and daughter, Lou, Messers and Mesdames Francis Suckow, Edward Zank, Chris Geutz, Oliver Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Ollie Poler, Misses Dorothy Schultz, Edna Keuer, and Bertha Hardrath, Kenneth Olson, William MacKinley, Rev. and Mrs. E.
