Preller, Edna M. (24 JAN 1942)

Preceding a 9 o’clock nuptial high mass in St. Elizabeth’s Catholic church in Milwaukee, Saturday morning, Jan. 24, 1942, Miss Edna Marie Preller, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Preller of Abbotsford, exchanged marriage vows with Franklin Howard Bauer, son of Frank Bauer, Loyal. The Rt. Rev. Josaphat Muesig was celebrant of the mass. The nuptial music was played by an ensemble of violin, flute and pipe organ.

For the ceremony, the bride wore a white chiffon dirndl gown cut with a square neckline of silver scrolling. The torso waistline was bordered with silver insertion. With it she wore a string of pearls, the gift of the groom. A finger tip veil falling from a seed pearl tiara and a colonial bouquet of tea pink roses and baby breath completed the bridal ensemble.

Miss Margaret Beaver of Loyal, a cousin of the groom, as maid of honor, wore a gown of white silk jersey made similar to that of the bride and carried a matching silk jersey muff with lace inserts and pink and white carnations.
