Kuester, Violet M. #2 (20 SEP 1947)

Violet M. Kuester, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norbert Kuester of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Eldore Humke, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Humke, also of Greenwood, in a ceremony performed last week in the West Side Reformed Church. The Rev. J. C. Klingeberger performed the ceremony.

The bride’s costume had a bodice of white skinner satin with a deep "v" neckline. The yoke was trimmed with hand-cut silk sweetheart lace. Long sleeves came to a point over the wrist. Her gown buttoned down the back; and a full cable net skirt over satin ended in a long lace-edged train. Her fingertip veil was of fine illusion, edged with hand-cut silk heart lace, attached to a pearl orange blossom headband.

Maid of honor was Gladys C. Kuester of Greenwood, sister of the bride. She wore a pink gown, silk marquisette over taffeta, styled with a sweetheart neckline and short puffed sleeves. She wore a matching bonnet and carried a colonial bouquet of white, pink and aqua roses.

Mrs. Norman Liebzeit, a sister of the groom, was the bridesmaid.

Elmer Humke, twin brother of the groom, was best man, and Norman Liebzeit acted as groomsman. Paul Humke, cousin of the groom, and Lawrence Laabs, cousin of the bride, were ushers.

Rebecca Lee Kuester of Thorp was the flower girl.

A dinner and reception was held following the ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents for 295 guests.

Both the bride and groom are graduate of Greenwood High School, she with the class of 1944, and he with the class of 1942.
