Kroll, Eileen (Marriage - 14 April 1951)

Miss Eileen Kroll, daughter of Edward Kroll of Neillsville, became the bride of Arnold L. Buchholz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Buchholz, at a ceremony performed at the St. John’s Lutheran Church, Christie, on April 14. The Rev. Walter Schedler officiated at the double ring ceremony.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father Edward Kroll, was attired in a gown of Chantilly lace over gleaming white satin. The lace was softly draped down the full skirt that extended into a long flowing train. Her fingertip veil of imported illusion net was edged in lace and fell from a floral trimmed lace and silk tulle bonnet. She carried a cascade bridal bouquet of roses and calla lilies.

Her maid of honor was the groom’s sister, Alice Buchholz and Ethel Poppe, a close friend of the bride, was her bridesmaid. They were dressed in gowns fashioned alike, of Nile green and Maize sheer marquisette over rayon taffeta. The fitted bodices and the peplums were trimmed with appliqué motifs. They wore bonnets of Aleman type lace over net with a pleated ruffle and matching mitts. They carried bouquets of fan shaped yellow daffodils.

Richard Buchholz acted as his brother’s best man and Wilmer Kroll brother of the bride, served as groomsman. Arnold Mueller, brother-in-law of the groom and Ervin Kroll, brother of the bride, acted as ushers. Mrs. Arnold Mueller accompanied the soloist Wilfred Galstad. Following the ceremony a wedding reception was held at the Legion Hall for approximately 75 guests. The hall was tastefully decorated in green and white streamers and the bridal table was centered with a three tiered wedding cake. Following the reception a dance was held at the Silver Dome. The young couple left immediately for a honeymoon in southern Wisconsin.

The bride graduated from the Neillsville High School with the class of ’48 and has been workin at home. The groom is employed at his father’s farm north of Christie.

Guests from out of town included Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Schoenherr and son Paul of Columbus, Wis.; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Leonhardt of Abbotsford; Pvt. Gordon Leonhardt of Camp Holt, La.; Mrs. Alma May and daughter Shirley of Greenwood; Bernard May of Madison; and Mr. and Mrs. Darrell Truax of Marshfield.
