Goehring, Katherine M. (20 APR 1943)

Last Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock before the altar of the Methodist church here, flanked with baskets of mixed spring flowers, Miss Katherine M. Goehring of Milwaukee exchanged wedding vows with Loraine Cook, also of Milwaukee, with the Rev. Myron E. Taylor reading the nuptial service. Parents of both the bride and groom, Mr. and Mrs. Otto Goehring and Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Cook, reside on Loyal route one.

Mr. and Mrs. Emery Cook, brother and sister-in-law of the groom; Miss Janice Cook, sister of the groom and Gordon Goehring, brother of the bride were the attendants.

The bride given in marriage by her father, was attired in a white chiffon gown fashioned with a sweetheart neckline, puffed sleeves, shirred bodice and long, billowy skirt. Her fingertip veil was caught to a starched net, ruffled headdress, and she carried a colonial bouquet of white rose buds. The matron of honor and the bridesmaid wore identical dresses of pink and blue marquisette made with matching lace bodices. Shoulder length veils and corsages completed their costumes.

Miss Elma Prior played Lohengrin’s wedding march and accompanied Miss Laura Woodmansee, who sang a solo, "I Love You Truly."

A supper for immediate relatives and closest friends followed at the home of the bride’s parents, decorated with pink, blue and white streamers and large wedding bells.

After May 1 the couple will be at home to friends at 928 North 15th street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Both the young people, now employed in that city, are graduates of the Loyal high school, the groom with the class of 1939 and the bride in 1941.Mrs. Cook, who is employed in the Wisconsin Department of Taxation at Milwaukee, also attended the Eau Claire vocational school for one year. Mr. Cook is a welder in a Milwaukee shipyard.

The best wishes of the Tribune go with those of other friends to the couple.
