Snyder, Ruth (30 AUG 1940)

The 40th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Snyder, August 30th, 1940 at 2 o’clock, was also the wedding of their youngest daughter Ruth who became the bride of Harold Schlinsog of York. The wedding party took their places before a beautiful floral altar as the wedding march was played by Miss Doris Dubes. Rev. Leo Chapman of the Spokeville Chapel performed the double ring ceremony.

Preceding the service Miss Dubes sang "I Love You Truly" accompanied by Miss Marian Cole at the piano.

The bride was lovely in a beautiful gown of white net over satin with a long tulle veil. The dainty locket, a gift of the groom, and her shower bouquet were her ornaments.

The bride’s sister, Hazel was maid of honor and was dressed in peach crepe and carried a bouquet. The bridesmaids were Esther Schlinsog, sister of the groom and Mabel Ullman, both of whom wore light blue taffeta gowns and carried bouquets.

The groom and his attendant, William Rohloff wore blue suits and boutonnieres.

Following the ceremony a wedding dinner was served by two close friends of the bride, Mrs. George Freezy of Granton, and Miss Arlene Lindow of Chili, and the beautiful wedding cake was baked by Mrs. William Dankemeyer.

The bride is a graduate of the Granton High School class of 1936, also of a St. Paul beauty culture school. She is a capable, charming person and has a wide circle of friends.

The groom is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Schlinsog of the town of York. He is an industrious young man and has spent his whole life at home, having rented his father’s farm where he and his bride will reside after returning from a trip to an unknown destination.

While Mr. and Mrs. Schlinsog were looking forward to years of happiness, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder were thinking of the time 40 years ago when they were married at Fancy Creek in Richland County and of their moving to the home they now own, where they raised their family of nine children all of whom are living lives a credit to their parents. Five are in California and unable to be present, the remaining four living in the vicinity of Sprkeville were privileged to attend and rejoice over the happy occasion.

Other guests were Mrs. Snyder’s mother, Grandma Zummerle of Bloom City, a sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Swanjord of Balaton, Minnesota and an uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Lowman of Fairchild, also Clyde Johnson of Hillsboro, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Schlinsog, Mr. and Mrs. Hans Heimke and sons Harland and Gerald, Raymond and Ursie Schlinsog and Mrs. Lena Ullman of Neillsville and Rev. and Mrs. Chapman, Gladys and Leo.

May many years of happiness be in store for both Mr. and Mrs. Schlinsog and Mr. and Mrs. Snyder.
