Klein, Dorothy (Marriage 20 Sept. 1946)

Choosing September 20, the birthday anniversary of the groom’s Mother, as their wedding day, Miss Dorothy Klein, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Klein, Spencer, Route 1, and Donald Krause, Spencer, Route 2, were united in marriage at 1:45 p.m. at the home of the bride’s parents. The Rev. H. C. Hinz officiated.

The home was decorated with bouquets of fall flowers for the occasion.

Attendants were Miss Berdeanne Schultz, Marshfield, and Bernard Krause, Spencer, the groom’s brother.

Both the bride and her attendant wore blue wool suits, chocolate brown accessories and corsages of roses. The bride’s rhinestone bracelet was a gift from the groom. The handkerchief she carried was the same one carried by her mother for her wedding.
