Norton, Mary (4 OCT 1941)

In a pretty double wedding performed at St. Aloysius’ Church in Chicago on Saturday, Oct. 4, 1941, Miss Mary Norton and Miss Theresa Norton, daughter of Mrs. Frank Norton, became the brides of L. Earle Putzel, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Putzel of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and Eugene O’Brien, son of Mrs. Eugene, Obrien of Chicago, respectively. Ray Norton gave his sisters in marriage.

The brides wore identical gowns of white satin with finger-tip veils falling from Juliet caps trimmed with seed pearls and orange blossoms. Each carried a bouquet of white gladioli.

The matron of honor, a sister of the brides, was attired in a rust colored velvet gown made with a fitting bodice and full skirt. She wore a matching veil and carried a bouquet of yellow, rust and brown pompons. Miss Lucy Putzel of Greenwood, sister of Earle Putzel, and Miss Dorothy Winfield were bridesmaids. They wore gowns of sea green velvet with matching veils, and carried shower bouquets of pompons.

The grooms were attended by Edward Norton and Stephen Lowry. Frank Norton was usher.

A 1 o’clock breakfast was served at the Charles Hotel to 48 guests, and a reception was held in the evening. Mr. and Mrs. Putzel will reside in Wichita, Kan., and Mr. and Mrs. O’Brien will make their home in Chicago.
