Evans, Jane M. #2 (22 APR 1939)

On Saturday evening at 7 o’clock Miss Jane Evans, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Evans of Racine became the bride of Carl Matthias, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Matthias of Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.).

Grange Avenue Methodist Church at Racine was impressively decorated for the service with palms, calla lilies, gladioli and candelabra. Lighted tapers were placed at each pew. The Rev. Granvill Calhoun read the service.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white taffeta with a marquisette redingote. Her fingertip veil fell from a halo of orange blossoms. Her only accessory was a gold chain which had been a gift of her father to her mother at their marriage. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses, gardenias and white sweet peas.

Mrs. George Woodward of Racine attended the bride as matron of honor. She wore peach net over taffeta and carried a bouquet of roses, sweet peas and forget-me-nots.

Mrs. Robert Trussell, also of Racine, attended the bride in a gown of blue lace over taffeta. She carried a similar bouquet. Both attendants wore flowers in their hair.

The groom was attended by his brother, Franklin, Knoxville, Tenn., as best man, and also by Robert Trussell of Racine. The ushers were William Smith and Paul Wahler of Racine.

During the ceremony Mrs. Margaret Owen played the pipe organ "In a Monastery Garden" and "Song to a Bride." Mr. Aage Jensen sang "O Promise Me" and "Because."

A reception to 125 guests was held at the home of the bride’s parents. Mrs. Matthias, the groom’s mother, of Curtiss, attended.

The bridegroom, after graduating from the Abbotsford High School, entered the University of Wisconsin School of Engineering. He is also a member of Chi Epsilon, national honor fraternity of civil engineers.

Mr. and Mrs. Matthias spent a few days visiting his parents at Curtiss. They left Wednesday for a trip through the East and their home in Norfolk, Va., where Mr. Matthias is engaged as an army engineer.
