Swenson, Mabel G. (Marriage - 15 May 1937)
On Saturday, May 15th, at ten o’clock in the morning at the Sparta Congregational parsonage, Rev. E. T. Phillips united in marriage Hubert W. Winebrenner and Mabel G. Swenson, both of Sparta. Their attendants were Miss Evelyn Swenson, sister of the bride, and Mr. Jay Steinmetz, high school chum of the groom.
The bride was attired in white lace and carried an arm bouquet of American beauty roses. The bridesmaid wore powder blue silk crepe.
Following the ceremony, dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Olaf Swenson, residing on Route One, just west of Sparta, at which only members of the bride’s family and the groom’s mother, Mrs. Jessie Winebrenner of Colby were present. The newlyweds then left by auto on a short honeymoon to be spent with friends and relatives in Chicago and Milwaukee.
The bride grew to womanhood in Sparta, graduated from Sparta high school, class of ’32, and was valedictorian of her class. Later, she graduated from Sparta Business College and for nearly four years she held the position of stenographer with the finance department of the government at Sparta.
The groom is the only son of Mrs. Jessie Winebrenner of Colby and graduated from the Marshfield high school with the class of ’33. The following fall he enlisted in the CCC and was assigned to service at Camp McCoy near Sparta. In May, 1935, he was promoted to a civilian’s rank and still holds the position of chief clerk in the government’s motor transportation division at Sparta.
