Rusch, Joyce (28 NOV 1943)

Joyce A. Rusch, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernie R. Rusch of Thorp, Clark Co., Wis., and Sgt Willard C. Claussen, only soon of Mr. and Mrs. John Claussen of O’Neill, Neb., were united in marriage at Phoenix, Ariz., on Sunday, Nov. 28, 1943.

Preceding the ceremony, Miss Edith Peacock sang "I Love You Truly," and "Because," accompanied by Mrs. E.A. Reinhardt at the organ. Mrs. Reinhardt also played the wedding march from Lohengrin.

The double ring ceremony was performed before a small group of relatives and friends by Rev. Ed A. Reinhardt at 2:00 p.m. in the Phoenix Christian Church.

The bride was attended by Mrs. P.S. Brooker, her sister, as matron of honor. The bridegroom was attended by Tech. Sgt. Ernest E. Skinner, his friends. The bride wore an aqua street length dress, and a corsage of white carnations. Mrs. Brooker wore a powder blue dress, and a corsage of deep pink carnations. The bridegroom and his attendant wore the regular Army uniform.

Among those attending the wedding was the bride’s mother, Mrs. B.R. Rusch, of Thorp, Wis.

Immediately following the ceremony a reception was held for the wedding party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. P.S. Brooker.

Sgt. Claussen has been stationed at Luke Field, Phoenix, Ariz., since his enlistment into the Army Air Corps in August 1942.

The young couple are at home at 2313 West Adams, Phoenix, Ariz.
