Baehr, Cora (Marriage - 10 SEP 1938)

St. Peter’s Lutheran church of Dorchester was the scene of a pretty wedding Saturday when Miss Cora Baehr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Baehr of the town of Mayville, became the bride of Rudolph E. Ewig of Milwaukee, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ewig of West Allis.

Rev. J. Brandt performed the ceremony at 3 o’clock in the presence of relatives and friends. During the services, Miss Leota Brandt played Lohengrin’s bridal march, Mrs. E. R. Erickson sang a solo and Mrs. Erickson and Miss Brandt sang a duet.

The bride was attired in a white taffeta gown with train; her fingertip veil with tulle was trimmed with orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses and gladioli.

Miss Myrtle Wilhelmi and Miss Erma Holtz, who attended as bridesmaids, wore gowns of wine colored moiré taffeta trimmed with velvet ribbon, and Mrs. Norma Kraemer, matron of honor, was attired in aqua blue taffeta trimmed with wine velvet ribbon. They wore head bands of gold leaves and carried yellow and white chrysanthemums and baby’s breath.

Walter and Herbert Baehr, brothers of the bride, and Herbert Wilhelmi attended the groom.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and dinner was served to 30 guests.

The bride is a graduate of Dorchester high school class of 1930 (?), and the Milwaukee Hospital training school, class of 1935. For the past three years she has been employed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Mr. Ewig, a graduate of Hoffman’s Business college, Milwaukee, is assistant manager of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., Bayview district.

After a week’s trip to Eagle River, northern Wisconsin and Minneapolis, the couple will be at home to friends at 3287 So. Kinnickinnic avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. -Dorchester Clarion
