The bride, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolf Wahlen of the town of Washburn, was dressed in a dusty pink street dress with beige accessories. Her flowers were pink rosebud and blue delphinium. Her sister (Nellie), Mrs. Walter Junchen, of Tomah, acted as bridesmaid. Mrs. Junchen wore a pink silk dress with luggage tan accessories. Her flowers were a combination of white gladioli with pink rosebuds and blue delphinium. Mr. Junchen attended the groom as best man.

Mrs. Rizner is a graduate of the Neillsville High School. Even ?ere completing the course, the young woman had established herself in a permanent position, working then as a stenographer and bookkeeper. Later she became a full time bookkeeper and teller. In her work she was accurate and courteous with the public. Her sweet disposition and charming ladylike manner won for her the love and respect of many friends.

Mr. Rizner attended the public school in his boyhood community, helping his parents with the farm work and doing other work that was available until he enlisted in the U. S.
