Schultz, Ruth L. (Marriage - June 1943)

Miss Ruth L. Schultz of Wausau, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Schultz of Colby, and Earl L. Mulkins, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Kanneberg of Butternut, were married in St. Michael’s Catholic church at Wausau in a nuptial mass celebrated by Rev. T. S. Wojak. The bride was presented in marriage by her father. She wore a dress of white brocaded marquisette and a finger-tip veil caught to a poke bonnet headdress. She carried a bouquet of pink roses and white bachelor buttons.

Miss Norma Engeldinger of Colby, attending as maid of honor, was gowned in white marquisette and wore a sweetheart bonnet to match, while the bridesmaids, Miss Bessie Raeth of Edgar and Miss Eileen Kamenick of Marathon were similarly attired, with the exception of their headdresses. Their bouquets were also of pink roses and white bachelor buttons.

The bridegroom was attended by Walter Schultz, brother of the bride, as best man, and Staff Sgt. Ernest Schultz, a cousin of the bride.

The bridal party motored to Colby where a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and dinner and supper were served. A profusion of tulips and bridal wreaths decorated the home. In the evening, a wedding dance was given at Wiedenhoeft’s pavilion.

The couple will reside in Gloucester, N.J., where the bridegroom is employed in defense work. They will be at home to friends after June 21st.
