Foemmel, Ella (Marriage - 1940)

Miss Ella Foemmel, daughter of Mrs. Wm. Foemmel of Neillsville, rural route three, was united in marriage to Frank Hoffmann, son of Mrs. Martha Hoffmann of the town of Weston, Rev. Adolph Schumann performing the double-ring ceremony at 2 p.m. Many friends were in attendance.

The bride, gowned in a beautiful lenceon lace and a net dress, was given away by her father. A long net veil, trimmed with lenceon lace and a bouquet of red roses completed her wedding ensemble.

Her attendants were Miss Irene Davis, the maid of honor and Mrs. Carl Hoffman, who acted as bridesmaid. Miss Davis wore pink taffeta and carried a bouquet of mock orange blossoms and red roses. Mrs. Hoffmann wore a gown of aqua taffeta and carried a bouquet similar to that of Miss Davis. Both attendants wore shoulder veils. Gerhardt Foemmel and Carl Hoffmann attended the groom. All of the men wore dark suits with white shoes.

A reception and wedding supper was given at the home of the bride’s parents following the ceremony. The home was colorful in baskets of flowers and a prettily laid table with a large wedding cake as the center-piece.

The bride is a graduate of the Neillsville High School and the teachers training department. She has been a successful rural instructor, teaching at Hillside, Pine Valley, for four years and for the past two years she has taught in the Wildwood school at Willard.

The groom has rented his mother’s farm where the couple will make their home. Both young people have proven themselves capable in their lines of work. Mr. Hoffmann has conducted his mother’s for a number of years.

Mrs. Martha Ratsch and daughter of Chicago attended the wedding.
