Beggs, Harriet (Marriage - 6 Sept. 1941)

Standing before the fireplace adorned with baby chrysanthemums in the home of her uncle, Lyall T. Beggs, in Madison, Miss Harriet Beggs became the bride of Richard "Dick" Kennedy, Saturday afternoon at four o’clock.

The bride, who is the daughter of W. W. Beggs of Virocqua, was given in marriage by her father. The Rev. Edwin P. Kennedy, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church read the double ring service which was preceded and followed by cello and violin music.

For the occasion the bride chose a brown street length dress with brown hat and shoes. She wore a shoulder corsage and carried beige gloves.

Her only attendant was a friend, Miss Jane Leicht, La Crosse, who wore a tan dress with contrasting accessories and a corsage.

The groom, who is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Kennedy, had for his attendant Charles Rayman, also of La Crosse.

The groom’s mother wore a dress of ashes of roses with black accessories and a shoulder corsage of roses, sweet peas and swansonia.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home after which Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy left on a week end trip to Wisconsin Dells. They are at home in Madison where Mr. Kennedy is employed at the Oscar Mayer Packing Plant. Before her marriage the bride was employed as stenographer in radio station WKDH at La Crosse.
