Mikrut, Ann (1 FEB 1947)
The Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), was the scene of a lovely wedding service at nine o’clock Saturday morning when Miss Ann Margaret Mikrut became the bride of Louis William Jaeger at a nuptial high mass. Father Walter Dillenburg, pastor of the Holy Rosary Church, read the mass.
The bride, wearing a street length dress of powder blue, with a sweetheart neckline, with white accessories, carrying a white prayer book and an orchid, gifts of Mrs. N. C. Lehnen, and pearl earrings, a gift of the groom, was attended by her niece Phyliss Parker, and her sister, Mrs. Ray Parker, of Chicago. They wore street length dresses of pale blue and pink. The bride’s flowers consisted of a corsage of pink tea roses, while her attendants wore corsages of white gladiolas, imbedded in white satin ribbon.
The bridegroom and his attendant, John Mikrut, the bride’s brother, wore business suits, with carnation boutonnieres.
During the wedding ceremony the church choir sang several selections, including "Oh Beautiful Mother." The church was adorned with large bouquets of spring flowers.
At 11 o’clock, a breakfast was served at the Woodland Hotel for 30 guests by Mrs. N. C. Lehnen, in honor of the newlyweds. Later in the day a dinner, at which 40 relatives and friends of the couple attended, was served at the home of the bride’s mother east of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.). For the occasion the Mikrut home was beautifully decorated with tapered candles and spring flowers.
The couple is well known in Owen. The bride had been a steady and faithful employee at the Woodland Hotel for the past 26 years, and active in social circles in the city. Mr. Jaeger is an employee of the Western Condensing Co. of Owen and has a host of friends.
Attending the ceremony were the bride’s sister, Mrs. Ray Parker and daughter, Phyliss, Mrs. Marie Schwartz, and Mrs. Louise Piareckl of Chicago, the bridegroom’s father, Wm. Jaeger, and Mr. and Mrs. Ed Jaeger of Two Rivers, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Prueher and family of Chippewa Falls, Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Brandtner of Medford, and a host of Owen friends.
After the 15th of the month the couple will be at home to their many friends at their home in the Fourth ward of the city.
