Kobs, Bernice A. (Marriage - 11 Sept. 1947)

Ferns and baskets of white and pink gladioli decorated the Zoar Ev. Lutheran church of Milwaukee for the wedding of Miss Bernice A. Kobs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred J. Kobs of Colby, and Walter Rosselet of Milwaukee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Rosselet, Sr., of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Rev. M. Hoffman performed the ceremony at 7:00 P.M. on September 11. Two solos were sung, "The Lord’s Prayer" and "Oh, Perfect Love" by L. D. Shark of Concordia College. Mrs. O. Schwann was organist.

The bride’s gown was made of white brocaded satin with a train. A pearled tiara held her fingertip veil which was all hand made. She carried a bouquet of white roses and white mums. She was given in marriage by her father. Mrs. DeLos Kobs as maid of honor wore a fuchsia taffeta dress. Her bouquet consisted of roses to match her dress and mums.
