Stevens, Eileen (Marriage - 27 June 1942)

In a double-ring ceremony, on Saturday at four p.m., the Rev. G. W. Longenecker united in marriage Miss Eileen Stevens of the town of Washburn and Leland Dopp to Granton.

They were attended by Mr. and Mrs. Richard Baird of Neillsville, close friends of the bride and groom.

The bride was charmingly attired in a gown of white slipper satin, cut princess style, sweetheart neckline and a strand of pearls. Her fingertip tulle veil was caught with a seed pearl cornet. She carried a bouquet of rosebuds and baby’s breath.

The bridesmaid was dressed in a gown of pink taffeta with ruffled bolero. She wore a pink, shoulder length veil and a headband of pink flowers. Her bouquet combined white carnations and pink roses. The groom and best man wore white carnation boutonnieres.

After the ceremony they returned to the bride’s home where a 6:30 wedding dinner was served to twenty-six relatives and intimate friends.

The Stevens home was decorated in pink and white streamers and bouquets of pink and red peonies and other cut flowers.

Mrs. Dopp is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Stevens of Shortville. She was graduated from the Neillsville High School with the class of 1940. For the last year she has been employed at the Clark County Highway office. The groom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Dopp, Granton, is a graduate of the Granton High School. He is employed at Marshfield where the couple took up housekeeping at once in an apartment which had been prepared for them.
