Schwarze, Bernice (10 JUN 1948)

At 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon a Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.) couple exchanged nuptial promise at the West Side Reformed Church in that city.

Miss Bernice Schwarze, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Schwarze, and LeRoy Fravert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Fravert, repeated their vows before Rev. J.C. Klingeberger.

Miss Elvera Reineking, Greenwood, was maid of honor. The bridegroom’s brother, Orlin Fravert, served as best man. Other attendants were Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Schwarze, Minneapolis, Minn., the former a brother of the bride. Paul Franz and Norman Noah, both of Greenwood, ushered.

The bride wore an entrained gown of white satin fashioned with a net yoke and a bertha collar with scalloped edging of satin appliqué. Her finger-tip veil fell from a wreath of pearlized orange blossoms. She carried an orchid on a white prayer book.

The maid of honor and bridesmaid were both dressed in orchid moiré. Matching headdresses completed their attire and they carried bouquets of yellow carnations.

A 5 o’clock dinner was served in the church parlors. A reception was held later at the home of the bride’s parents.

Mr. and Mrs. Fravert are graduates of the Greenwood High School. The bride was formerly employed by the Wis. Telephone Company at Eau Claire. Her husband, a veteran of three years’ service in World War II, attended the University of Wisconsin. He is now employed at the Chevrolet Garage in Greenwood.

They will make their home on the farm of the bride’s parents.
