Olson, Dorothy #3 (27 SEP 1939)

Amid the beauty of fall flowers and streamers of mixed fall colors, Miss Dorothy Olson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Olson of the town of Hull (Marathon Co., Wis.), and Ben Fitzel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Wuckerfenning of the town of Frankfort, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at four o’clock, Wednesday, Sept. 27, 1939, at the Zion Lutheran Church at Colby, Wis. The Rt. Rev. Hoffman of Colby read the wedding service.

The newlyweds were attended by Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Schmidt, Marshfield, Mr. and Mrs. Byron Olson of Colby, Wis., and Miss Helen Yost of Colby, Wis., and Wayne Olson of Curtiss, Wis.

A gown of white taffeta with a full skirt and train and a veil worn by her mother 30 years before and her sister nine years ago, at their marriages, was worn by the bride. She carried a bouquet of white lilies and pompoms. Her attendants, Mrs. Schmidt, sister of the groom, wore a dress of yellow net, Mrs. Byron Olson, her sister-in-law, wore aqua and Miss Yost wore a dress of blue net with matching accessories, and wore shoulder corsages.
