Clintsman, Irene (Marriage - 3 August 1948)

Miss Irene Clintsman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Clintsman of Greenwood, became the bride of Willis Hohman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hohman of Arcadia, August 3, (1948) in the Greenwood Methodist Church, with the Rev. L. Holmes, pastor of the church, officiating at the single ring service before 150 guests.

The bride entered the church on the arm of her father. She wore a gown of white marquisette with a cape neckline edged in satin flowers. The flower motif was carried out on her overskirt, and her fingertip veil fell from a bonnet headdress. Her colonial bouquet was of gardenias.

Mrs. Eugene Killian, matron of honor, was gowned in lime green, and Miss Shirley Clintsman and Miss Nellie Jane Clintsman wore orchid and yellow respectively. All three wore hats and carried gladioli, matching their gowns in color.

Best man was Eugene Killian, and groomsmen were John English and Richard Meinerz. Ted and Bob Clintsman were ushers. Music was provided by Ann Huntzicker accompanied by Margaret Mlada.

After a wedding reception held in the church parlors which were decorated for the occasion with phlox and gladioli, the young couple left for a wedding trip in northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. They will be at home August 9, in Arcadia, where the groom is employed in a department store.

The bride is a graduate of Greenwood High School and the Eau Claire State Teachers’ College. The groom, who graduated from the Arcadia High School, is a veteran of three years’ service in World War II.
