Syring, Irene (Marriage - 27 Dec. 1941)
One of the pretty weddings of the holiday season was that of Miss Irene Syring, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Syring of the town of Frankfort, and Harold Hanne, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hann of the town of Hull, which was solemnized December 27th at 3:00 o’clock at the St. John’s Lutheran church in the town of Wien by the Rev. Ernest Nottbohm. Mrs. Henry Bauman sang two solos, "Trust and Obey" and "He Knows the Way."
Two large Christmas trees with blue lights, a lighted star above the altar and lighted tapers provided a beautiful background for the ceremonies.
The bride was attired in a gown of white slipper satin with long puffed sleeves ending with points over the wrist, tiny, self-trimmed buttons till waist in back, lace inserting long train. Her finger tip veil of lace was held to the head by a headdress of seed pearls to match a pin on her dress. She carried pink roses, white pompoms, carnations, sweet peas and ferns. Her only jewelry were pearls, a gift of her uncle.
The maid of honor, Miss Milda Syring, sister of the bride, was gowned in peacock blue stardust velveray taffeta with a sweetheart neck line trimmed with tiny bows. She wore a velvet headdress and shoulder length veil to match her dress. Her bouquet consisted of roses, carnations, pompoms and ferns tied with blue ribbon.
Miss Shirley Syring, cousin of the bride, was gowned in fuchsia stardust velveray faille taffeta with a sweetheart neckline trimmed with tiny bows. She wore a velvet headdress and shoulder length veil to match the dress. Her bouquet consisted of roses, carnations, pompoms and ferns tied with a rose ribbon.
Eldred Hanne, brother of the groom, was best man and Rueben Syring, brother of the bride, was groomsman.
Mrs. Syring, mother of the bride, and Mrs. Hanne, mother of the groom, wore navy blue crepe dresses. Their corsages were of carnations, roses and pompoms.
The home of the bride’s parents was decorated with rose, blue and white streamers. A wedding bell centered a large wedding cake for the reception held during the afternoon attended by 65 guests. Guests included Mr. and Mrs. Emil Totsch and family and Mrs. Laurence Otto and family of Wausau, Mr. and Mrs. Woodrow Schmutzler, Jimmie and Junior, Mrs. Amelia Amundson, Joyce and Loyd and Mr. and Mrs. William Pacholke and family of Colby, Wis. Others attended from Abbotsford, Wis., town of Hull and Edgar. In the evening a large crowd attended the wedding dance given at Trianons.
