Sample, Helen (25 June 1935)

On Tuesday afternoon, June 25th, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd W. Sample, near Withee, a pretty wedding was solemnized in the presence of immediate friends and relatives, when their daughter, Helen, became the bride of Mr. Donald Horn, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Horn of Colby.

The ceremony took place in front of the bay window in the living room, which was banked with ferns, peonies and roses.

The attendants were Miss Kathryn Haas, maid of honor, Miss Virginia Swanson, bridesmaid and Price Proctor, nephew of the bride, acted as ringbearer. The groom was attended by Noel Schilling of Colby, as best man and Hugh Cullen of Janesville, brother of the bride, as groomsman.

The minister, Rev. E. H. Delware of Weyauwega, was a college friend of the groom.

The bride chose for her wedding gown a floor length dress of French white embroidered organdy with a wide satin sash. With it she wore a white tulle veil turban and whire accessories. Her bouquet was a shower of white roses and lilies of the valley, tied with tulle. She carried her mother’s wedding handkerchief of real lace. The maid of honor was gowned in pink organdy and the bridesmaid in yellow organdy both with white accessories. They carried arm bouquets of blue delphinium and sweet peas. The ring-bearer, dressed in a white Eton suit, carried the ring in a white calla lily. After the ceremony a two-course luncheon was served in charge of Mrs. Forest Proctor, sister of the bride.

The young couple left that evening for Oshkosh where they will make their future home.

Two pre-nuptial showers were given in honor of the bride. A kitchen shower by Miss Virginia Swanson and a miscellaneous shower by Mrs. Ed. Fredrick and Mrs. Ed. Petke of Withee.
