Greening, Evelyn Louise (Marriage - 26 June 1943)

In a double ring ceremony performed last Saturday afternoon in the Zion Ev. Lutheran church in Colby, Miss Evelyn Louise Greening, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Greening of the town of Spencer, became the bride of Rudolph Harold Lynn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon Lynn of the town of Brighton, Rev. O. H. Hoffmann reading the marriage ceremony.

The couple was attended by Miss June Lynn of Wausau as maid of honor, Pfc. Marvin Greening of Fort Sheridan, Ill., as best man, the Misses Irmgard and Adeline Greening of the town of Spencer, sisters of the bride, as bridesmaids and Arnold Rannow of Colby, Wis., and William Schultz, Jr., of Unity as groomsmen.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white ninon, styled with short, puffed sleeves, and a sweeping train. The bodice and skirt were trimmed with lace insertion. Two tiers of lace bordered the train of her veil of silk illusion, which was arranged in blushed style and worn with a coronet headdress of seed pearls and brilliants. Her bouquet was a shower of roses and sweet peas.

The bride’s attendants carried bouquets of carnations and snapdragons. The maid of honor was gowned in yellow ninon and lace and the bridesmaids wore identical frocks of aqua and pink, styled with lace bodices and full ninon skirts.

Both mothers were in attendance at the ceremony in navy blue ensembles, with white accessories, and wore shoulder bouquets of tea roses and sweet peas.

The Greening home, decorated with cut flowers and streamers of pink, aqua, yellow and white, was the scene of a large reception later in the day. Dinner was served to 66 guests. A wedding dance followed at the Wiedenhoeft pavilion in Colby, Wis.

The guests from out-of-town included Adolf Greening, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Draeger, Mrs. Irene Lynn, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Ewert and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Radke and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bartell, Miss Jean Bartell and Miss Dorothy Kencik, Wausau; Mr. and Mrs. Otto Schmidt, Edgar; Mr. and Mrs. A.
