Wagner, Marcelline A. (Marriage - 30 Aug. 1945)

Miss Marcelline A. Wagner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Wagner of St. Peter, Wis., became the bride of Pvt. Donald F. Colby, son of Mrs. Luck Colby of Unity, route 1, in a wedding ceremony read by Rev. Nicholas B. Beschta in St. Mary’s Catholic church in Colby at 9:00 A.M., August 30th. Attendants were Mrs. Victor Braun, a sister of the bride, Mrs. John Peters, a sister of the groom, and Lawrence Wagner, a brother of the bride.

The bride was attired in a brown dress with hat and accessories and corsage of red roses. She carried a prayer book showered with bouvardia. Mrs. Braun wore a royal blue frock and Mrs. Peters was attired in a powder blue dress. Both completed their attire with brown accessories and carried pink asters arranged in colonial bouquets.

Following the ceremony, dinner was served to 100 guests at the Wagner home which was decorated in red, white and blue. In the evening, a wedding dance was held. Later, the couple left for Northern Wisconsin on a wedding trip.
