Zinthefer, Marie C. (Marriage - 3 June 1948)

Miss Marie C. Zinthefer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Zinthefer of Marshfield, and Donald P. Kanter, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herb Kanter of Unity, were united in marriage on Thursday morning, June 3, at a solemn high mass at St. Michaels Catholic church, Hewitt, by Rev. Aloys Zinthefer, uncle of the bride, as he had for the bride’s parents at their marriage 28 years ago. Assisting were Rev. N. B. Beschta of Colby and Rev. Robert Oberwinder of Hewitt as sub-deacon. The bride’s sister, Miss Dolores Zinthefer, was maid of honor. Another sister, Miss Pauline Zinthefer, and her sister-in-law, Mrs. Joseph Zinthefer, were the bridesmaids and a third sister, Clarice Zinthefer, was junior bridesmaid. The groom was attended by Douglas Young of Milwaukee as best man and Joseph Fuchs and Joseph Zinthefer of Marshfield as groomsmen. John Zinthefer and Sylvester Weipel of Marshfield, cousins of the bride, ushered.

The bride was gowned in traditional white satin, fashioned with a high Queen Anne collar and a chantilly lace yoke. The fullside panels were edged with the same imported lace as was the long circular train. Her lace-edged finger-tip veil draped over a sweetheart bonnet of shirred illusion, trimmed with pearlized orange blossoms which matched those of the neckline of the gown. She carried a shower bouquet of calla lilies, white and red roses and swansonia tied to each of the streamers. The maid of honor wore a blue ninon gown styled with high gathered neckline and long full sleeves. The bridesmaids were dressed identically in yellow. They carried colonial bouquets of yellow and deep red carnations. The junior bridesmaid’s gown and flowers were identical to the bride’s. The bridegroom and his attendants all wore grey suits with pin stripes. The bride carried the same handkerchief her mother carried at her wedding 28 years ago, and the groom wore the same cuff links his father wore at his wedding 29 years ago. Mothers of the bride and groom wore dresses of navy blue with blue and white accessories. Their corsages consisted of red and white roses tied with white ribbons.

Dinner and supper were served to about 150 guests at the home of the bride’s parents. The home was decorated with white, blue and yellow streamers and a large white wedding bell. A wedding dance was held at Rozellville in the evening.

The bride attended school at Hewitt and the groom at Colby, Wisconsin. Before her marriage, the bride was employed by the A. H. Weinbrenner Shoe Company. The groom is employed at the U.S. post office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They will be at home at 531 E. State St., Milwaukee, Wis., after June 10th.
