Halverson, Rachel (Marriage - 14 June 1950)

The wedding of Miss Rachel Halverson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl M. Halverson, Owen, to Robert Edwin Hopkins, Milesville, South Dakota, took place at St. Katherine’s Episcopal Church at Owen at 8:00 o’clock in the evening, Wednesday, June 14. The Rev. Dr. K. O . Crosby performed the single ring ceremony.

For her marriage the bride chose an ice blue sharkskin summer suit with white accessories which was further enhanced by a corsage of white roses.

Mrs. Everett Jacobsen, Chippewa Falls, her sister, was her only attendant. She wore a shell pink sharkskin summer suit with green and pink accessories. Her corsage was of pink carnations.

Attending the bridegroom as best man was his brother, Dr. David Hopkins, of La Crosse.

Mrs. Ted Halverson, aunt of the bride, played the organ. Previous to the ceremony, Bob Hatcher, her cousin, sang "The Lord’s Prayer" and during the ceremony sang, "O Perfect Love."

The bride’s mother wore a dress of navy crepe with matching accessories and a corsage of pink carnations.

Immediately after the ceremony a reception was given in the Community Hall. Each table setting was attractively decorated with bouquets of spring flowers.

Later that night the couple left on a wedding trip that will take them into Canada. They will make their home, upon their return, in Abbotsford, where the groom is employed at Oscar Mayer & Company.

Among those from Abbotsford who attended the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Lamont and Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Vogler.
