Herman, Mayme (15 AUG 1942)

Saturday morning, Aug. 15, 1942, at nine o’clock, a very pretty wedding took place at St. Hedwig’s Church at Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), when Mayme Herman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Herman of Thorp, became the bride of Patrick Milligan, formerly of Brooklyn, N.Y. The Rev. S.R. Lengowski performed the ceremony.

A floor length gown of white sheer chiffon, designed with a long train and exquisite lace bodice, was chosen by the bride for her wedding. She wore a long tulle veil, with lace completing the lenth of the veil and blusher, held in place by a coronet tiara attractively set off with rhinestones in the shape of a V. She also wore a gold locket, as did the bridesmaids, and carried a bouquet of white roses and swansonias.

The matron of honor, Mrs. John Dulek, and the bridesmaid, Mrs. Jas. Boylan, chose similar gowns of blue and pink sheer chiffon with lace insertions and matching bonnets.

The groom and best man, James Boylan, each wore suits of navy blue.

Other attending couples were Mr. and Mrs. Hermiss Schmidt, and Alois Wilcenski and Mary Rembelski. Mrs. Schmidt and Miss Rembelski wore gowns of aqua and yellow designed similar to those of the matron of honor and bridesmaid. Their flowers were pink gladiolas, baby’s breath and gypsophias. Mr. Schmidt and Mr. Wilcenski were attired in navy blue suits.

The church itself was attractively decorated with gladiolas and dahlias set off by a soft white rug which covered the isle. The bride attended the Blessed Virgin’s altar.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents in the town of Thorp, where about 50 friends joined in the festivities. A free wedding dance was given in the evening at Mileaway for relatives and friends.

The bride has been employed as a teacher in rural schools for several years and at present will teach at the Sunny Lawn School. After a wedding trip to Wis. Dells, the newlyweds will live on the groom’s farm in the Town of Thorp.

Out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wilcenski and Mr. and Mrs. Tony Wilcenski of Gilman and Mrs. Stanley Herman of Chicago.
