Grinde, Dorothy Jane (Marriage - 18 September 1948)

Miss Dorothy Jane Grinde, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph M. Grande of Madison, and Julian Sund, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gustav Sund of Westby, were married at 4 p.m. Saturday in the University Presbyterian Church in Madison. The bride is a niece of Mrs. A. E. Russell of Neillsville. Her mother, Mrs. Grinde, is the former Elsie Tragsdorf.

The bride wore a gown fashioned with a fitted bodice of white satin and a bouffant skirt of white marquisette. A panel of satin, caught at the waistline in back formed a slight train. Her fingertip veil was caught by a tiara of gathered illusions. She carried a colonial bouquet of white roses and button pompoms.

The bride’s sister, Miss Caryl Grinde, was maid of honor, and Clarence Sund of Tomah served as bestman for his brother. The ushers were William Grinde, cousin of the bride, Merlin and Kenneth Sund, brothers of the groom, and Clare Jackson.

A reception for 175 guests was held after the ceremony in the church lounge. Miss Ruth Dickie, Madison, Mrs. A. E. Russell, Neillsville, Miss Virginia Brown, Chicago, and Mrs. Edwin Schmitz, Elmwood Park, Ill., assisted at the reception.

The couple left on a wedding trip to the Black Hills, and will be at home in Madison after October 4. The bride is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and a member of Chi Omega sorority. She is a dietitian at Wisconsin General Hospital. Mr. Sund received his B.S. and his M.S. at the University of Wisconsin and is a member of Delta Theta Sigma fraternity. He is an instructor of agronomy in the university.
