Hamm, Josephine (Marriage - 9 OCT 1940)

A beautiful nine o’clock wedding was solemnized Wednesday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in the Town of Holway, Oct. 9, 1940, when Josephine Hamm, daughter of Mrs. Joe Hamm, and Matthew Nowak, son of Mr. and Mrs. I. Nowak, exchanged matrimonial vows before Father Seeboth.

The bride was beautifully gowned in a dress of white satin with a train length veil that hung from a crown of pearls. She carried a bouquet of red and pink roses with white Swansonia.

Her attendants, Victoria Nowak and Inez Hamm, wore Victorian dresses, Miss Nowak’s being of aqua green taffeta and Miss Hamm’s of pink taffeta. They each carried a mixed bouquet of flowers.

The groom wore an oxford gray suit. He was attended by Andrew Lehnen and Robert Hamm, each of whom wore a dark suit.

The bride has been, for many months, employed at the Fremont Hotel where she was doing waitress work. The groom for several years has been employed as a cheesemaker for H.B. Mauel.

A dinner was served to a large number of guests of the newlyweds at the home of the bride’s mother and in the evening a wedding dance was enjoyed.

The young people will make their home in Owen, having established a residence in the third ward on Fourth St.

Out of town guests that were present for the wedding were the Misses Victoria and Clara Nowak, sisters of the groom, of Chicago; Anton Sandel of Clark, and Mr. and Mrs. George Hamm and daughter of Cadott.
