Andersen, Agnes (5 JUN 1943)

In an all white wedding Saturday, June 5th, 1943, at 8 p.m. at the Bethel Lutheran Church, Miss Agnes Andersen, Oregon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sam K. Andersen of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), was married to James L. Jones, 207 W. Washington Av., son of Mr. and Mrs. R.M. Jones of Mauston. The Rev. Morris Wee officiated.

The bride’s gown had a bodice of alencon lace and a bouffant skirt of heavy white faille. The dress was designed with a sweetheart neckline, long sleeves that ended in points, and a full skirt which extended into a graceful train. White illusion fashioned her fingertip veil. She carried a bouquet of purple-lipped orchids and lilies of the valley. Mr. Andersen gave his daughter in marriage.

Miss Helga Andersen attened her sister as maid of honor. She wore a floor length dress of white mousseline de soie and carried gardenias and valley lilies. Francis L. Jones of Tampa, Fla., was best man for his brother.

Mrs. Jones, mother of the bridegroom, wore a navy blue triple sheer dress with white accessories and a corsage of gardenias. The bride’s mother is ill in the hospital and was unable to attend the ceremony.

After a wedding dinner for the immediate family, a reception was held at the church. Masses of bridal wreath and valley lilies were used to decorate.

Mr. and Mrs. Jones have left on a short trip, for which the bride chose a simple navy blue sheer dress with navy and white accessories.

The bride, who received both her B.S. and M.S. degrees in home economics at the University of Wisconsin, teaches in the Oregon High School. She is a member of Pi Lambda Theta Sorority. Mr. Jones, who is a well known orchestra leader, attended the University of Wisconsin and is now employed as desk manager at the YMCA.
