Holst, Dagny (Marriag - 24 AUG 1941)
The Danish Lutheran church at Alden, Minn., was beautifully decorated with seasonal cut flowers and ferns making a lovely setting for a beautiful late summer wedding which united Miss Dagny Holst, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Jens A. Holst of Alden, and Erling E. Jensen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jens A. Jensen of Withee, in marriage.
The ceremony was performed at three o’clock Sunday afternoon, Aug. 24, by the bride’s father, Rev. Holst.
Miss Holst wore a bridal gown of white marquishier with short puffed sleeves with a sweetheart neckline, bodice white satin applique flower trim and a finger-tip veil. She carried a bouquet of white lillies and gladioli.
Her attendants were Mrs. Donald Beyer and Mrs. Irvin Nissen, her sisters, and Miss Mildred Johnson, a cousin.
The groom was attended by his brother, Leonard, as best man. Ushers were Irvin Nissen and Ted Westby.
Following the ceremony a reception was held for their friends and at 7:30 in the evening a dinner was served in the church dining room for the families and relatives of the newlyweds.
Both the bride and groom are well known in this community having lived in Withee for years. Each graduated from the Withee high school. For the past couple of years the bride has been clerking in the Farmer Store at Withee and the groom is employed as a teller in the Curtiss State Bank.
Those from Withee that attended the service were Mr. and Mrs. Jens Jensen, Mrs. Alfred Frost and daughter, Anna, and Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Jensen of Greenwood.
The couple will make their home at Withee after the first of October.
