Henke, Ruth (31 MAR 1951)

In a 9 o’clock nuptial mass performed by the Rev. A. M. Muckerheide Saturday, March 31, 1951, in St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Miss Ruth hence became the bride of Warren R. Rose.

Daffodils and gladioli formed the setting for the double ring ceremony. The bride, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Henke, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), was given in marriage by her father. She wore a white satin redingcote, styled with a mandarin collar and formal train, over a gown designed with a scalloped bodice and net skirt over satin. Holding her silk illusion fingertip veil was a white satin crown and orange blossoms. Easter lilies and red roses formed the bridal bouquet.

Attending the bride were her sisters Dolores and Dorothy Henke, Thorp. They wore identical gowns of pink and blue fashioned with lace bodices, mandarin collars, and skirts of net over taffeta. Matching hats and bouquets of daffodils and tulips completed their costumes.

Robert Seubert served as best man, while James Spencer acted as groomsman. Both are from Marshfield.

Receiving guests in St. Bernard’s Hall following the ceremony, both mothers wore navy blue dresses with corsages of red roses.

Leaving for a wedding trip in northern Wisconsin and Minnesota, the bride wore a beige suit with orchid accessories and an orchid corsage. She is a graduate of St. Joseph’s Hospital School of Nursing in Marshfield. The bridegroom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Allie Rose, Marshfield.

The couple will make their home at 547 ½ Putnam St. Eau Claire.
