Sczygiel, Olive (6 NOV 1937)

Wedding bells chimed gaily early Saturday morning, Nov. 6th, 1937, when Olive, daughter of Mrs. John Sczygiel of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), was joined in holy wedlock with Mr. Russell Bothe, son of Mrs. Augusta Bothe of Chicago, by Rev. F.A. Kulig, at a six o’clock mass at St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church.

The couple was attended by Ralph Schuehman, Chicago, and Miss Lottie Sczygiel, sister of the bride, as best man and bridesmaid, and the bride’s brother, Stanley, and Miss Helen Deppisch of Milwaukee. Lorraine Sczygiel acted as flower girl.

The bride was attired in a gown of white brocaded velvet with a long train. Her head was adorned with a wreath of orange blossoms and she wore a long veil, carrying a bouquet of white chrysanthemums. Her bridesmaids and flower girl wore long dubonette color velvet dresses, with veiled headdress of silver flowers, and carried yellow chrysanthemums. The groom and his attendants wore full dress suits.

The reception and dinner which followed the ceremony was held at the American Legion Hall and a dance was enjoyed in the evening.
