Sterling, Nila Mae (Marriage - 16 June 1945)

At 3:00 o’clock, Miss Nila Sterling, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nedry Sterling, became the bride of James Buss, son of George Buss, Abbotsford, Wis. Vows were repeated in a double ring ceremony before the altar, decorated with gladioli. The Rev. John Brandt read the service.

For the occasion the bride wore a white gown designed with a fitted taffeta bodice and peplum with a net over taffeta skirt and a seven foot train. Her finger tip veil was caught with orange blossoms. Her bouquet was made of pink and white carnations.

Attending the bride were her sister, Evelyn, seaman first class, of the WAVES, of New York, and Miss Elsie Mueller, of Abbotsford, Wis. With their white frocks they wore shoulder length veils caught with Floribunda roses and wrist corsages of pink and white carnations.

The groom was attended by Dale Ridderbusch Ivan Olsen, both of Abbotsford, Wis.

During the ceremony "Entreat Me Not to Leave Thee," was sung by Melvin Boehlke, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Ray Franz.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. A 6:30 supper was served at Heidelburges Chinese café at Medford. A decorated wedding cake, topped by a miniature bride and groom, was the centerpiece on the bridal table.

In the evening a wedding dance was held at Trianon Gardens.

Mr. and Mrs. Buss will be at home to friends on the groom’s farm, after June 23.

Mrs. Buss was graduated from the Abbotsford high school in 1944 and has been employed by Phillips and Co., Wausau. The groom is engaged in farming.

Among the relatives from away who attended the wedding were Evelyn Sterling, seaman first class, New York; and the groom’s sister, Mrs. Vance Yost, of Houston, Texas.
