Thurber, Genevieve (31 JUL 1937)

A large congregation of friends witnessed the wedding of two of Loyal’s well known young people in the Methodist Church Saturday at 10:30 A.M. when Miss Genevieve Thurber, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. G. W. Thurber became the bride of Mr. Dale West, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leon West.

Previous to the ceremony, Mrs. R. Pengelly rendered the piano solo "Liebestraum" by Liszt, and Miss Mavis Berg sang, "Oh Promise Me". As Mendelssohn’s Wedding march was played, Rev. W. N. Grandy of Rice Lake, who officiated, preceded the wedding party with the groom and best man Clyde Grambsch, following. The bridesmaid, Miss Eva Essex, appeared followed by the bride, all meeting at the altar and taking their positions for the ceremony. After the impressive double ring ceremony Miss Berg sang, " I Love You Truly."

The bride was dressed in a typical wedding gown of white satin with accessories all of white and carried a bouquet of bluish roses. She is a graduate of the Loyal High School and the Stevens Point Teachers’ College and has taught for the past two years in the Mack school district.

The groom is a graduate of the Loyal High School and is employed at present in the Co-operative Service Station on the west side of the village.

The bride’s maid wore a dress of peach color silk chiffon with corresponding accessories and also carried a bouquet of roses. Both the groom and the best man wore suits of gray.

The Misses Nancy Mary Thurber, Inez Kline, and Eunita White served as wedding ushers. The church was decorated for the occasion with an arch of peach and white and feathery green, vases of cut flowers, and ferns.

The Misses Edith, Luella, and Harriet, and Hazel Young, and Loraine Butterbrodt, with Mrs. C. M. Taylor in charge, were waitresses at the luncheon served to the hundred guests at the home of the bride’s parents.

The home was decorated with cut flowers, and the bride’s cake made by Miss Edith Young was white with a central opening which held a vase containing the bride’s bouquet.

Mr. and Mrs. West left the same day for a wedding trip to points in southern Wisconsin and Iowa, and upon their return will be at home to their many friends in Loyal, who wish for them success and happiness in their new life.
