Jacobi, Erma Esther (Marriage - 25 Mar. 1940)

Miss Erma Esther Jacobi, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Jacobi of Athens and John Stange of Curtiss, son of Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Stange of Abbotsford, were united in marriage at the Lutheran parsonage in Dorchester on Monday afternoon at 2:30. The Rev. J. Brandt read the marriage service.

The bride wore a dusky rose crepe suit with a bolero. The accessories were navy blue. She carried a bouquet of red roses, carnations and snapdragons.

Her cousin, Miss Sylvia Metke, of Campbellsport, attended the bride in a misty blue crepe suit with black accessories. She wore a corsage of yellow roses and sweet peas.

Clarence Jacobi, brother of the bride, was best man.

A reception and dinner followed the ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents.

The guests included Mrs. Augusta Jacobi, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Jacobi and family, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Jacobi and family, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bernitt, son, Raymond, Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Stange of Abbotsford; Mr. and Mrs. Ed Metke, Campbellsport; Mrs. Tillie Junker and son, Elmer, Town of Holton; Mrs. Elsie Brown, Manitowoc; and the Rev. and Mrs. J. Brant of Dorchester, Wis.

The home was decorated with rose and blue streamers. A tiered wedding cake decorated with matching flowers formed the center piece on the bridal table.

In the evening a wedding dance was held at Hinke’s hall.

Before her marriage Mrs. Stange was employed at the home of Dr. J. A. Rilling. The groom was engaged in farming with his parents who recently retired and moved to Abbotsford, Wis.

Mr. and Mrs. Stange are at home to their friends on their farm north of Curtiss.
