Werner, Amelia (11 JUN 1931)

Thursday afternoon at four o’clock in a very pretty home wedding, Miss Amelia Werner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Werner, was united in marriage to Lawrence t. Genrich, son of Mr. and Mrs. G.H. Genrich, both of this village (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.). The ceremony was performed at the home of the bride by Rev. J.R. Kalwitz of the Evangelical Peace Church, and the couple were attended by Bertha Werner, sister of the bride, and Elmer Genrich, brother of the groom.

The bride was given away by her father and the double ring ceremony was used. "Oh Promise Me" was sung by Miss Delores Thielke of Medford, accompanied by Miss Hildegard Ruesch, also of Medford. The house was beautifully decorated with seasonal flowers and at an altar made of floral decorations, the bride was given by her father to the groom.

The bride was daintily attired in a pale green georgette and lace formal, wore hat and slippers to match and carried a bouquet of pink sweet peas and lilies of the valley. Miss Bertha was gowned in yellow georgette, with matching hat and slippers and carried a bouquet of orchid sweet peas and lilies of the valley.

A six o’clock dinner was served at the bride’s home to the relatives of the contracting parties and in the evening a free wedding dance was given at the Dorchester Opera House.

The young couple will leave Friday for a short honeymoon and will be at home after June 25 at 2866 N. 25th St., Milwaukee.

Mrs. Genrich is a graduate of Dorchester Hi of the class of 1927 and for the past two years has been employed at Milwaukee. Lawrence is an Abbotsford graduate of 1924 and has been employed by a produce company at Milwaukee for three years.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Genrich are popular young people and well liked by all who know them. We join the host of friends in wishing them a happy and prosperous journey thru life together.
