Kren, Eleanor (Marriage - 19 Feb. 1944)

Miss Eleanor Kren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kren, Neillsville, Rt. 1, and Darrel Raine, son of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Raine Neillsville, Rt. 4, were married on Saturday afternoon, February 19 at 3 o’clock, at Sunset Point, the home of Rev. and Mrs. George W. Longenecker, pastor of the Congregational Church. The single ring service was performed by Mr. Longenecker. The parents and a few other close relatives of the bridal couple attended the service.

The bride wore a navy blue street length dress, and carried a wrist corsage of pink and white sweet peas and sweetheart roses, with a hand band to match. Her matron of honor, Mrs. Arthur Tews, wore a street length dress of Copenhagen blue, and had a head band of pink roses and white sweet peas.

The groom wore a navy blue suit, and his attendant Arthur Tews wore oxford gray. Each had a rosebud boutonniere.

The ceremony was followed by a reception for relatives and close friends at the home of the bride’s parents. The house was beautifully decorated with pink and blue streamers, and white wedding bells. A wedding dance followed on Saturday evening at the Moose Hall, with music furnished by the Dux orchestra.

The bride graduated from the Neillsville High School in the class of 1943, and since that time has been cashier at the Farmers’ Store in Neillsville. The groom attended high school for a while, and then worked on his father’s farm. He is now employed riving a milk truck.

The young couple went to housekeeping immediately at the Bradbury apartments.
