Hause, Doloris Ruth (Marriage - 21 June 1952) 

Miss Doloris Ruth Hause daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Hause of Neillsville, became the bride of Warren Leslie Van Kirk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Van Kirk of Humbird, at a double ring ceremony performed at 2:30 o’clock, Saturday, June 21, at the Evangelical and Reformed Church of Neillsville.  Large baskets of white gladioli and blue delphinium decorated the church. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose a gown of white taffeta covered with bouffant tulle and appliquéd with Chantilly lace.  The veil of fingertip length had a crown of seed pearls.  Her flowers were white orchids surrounded by a shower of stephanotis. 

The bride was attended by Miss Barbara Ann Van Kirk, sister of the groom, as maid of honor.  The bridesmaids were Grace Sholz, cousin of the bride, and Roselyn Stiemke, a friend of the bride. 

The groom was attended by Norman Hause, brother of the bride. The ushers were Glenn Roberts and Marvin Aumann. 

David Hause, a brother of the bride, was the ring bearer and Bonnie Lou Seelow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Seelow, was the flower girl. 

The organ was played by Gail Ludovic; Ellis Wall sang. 

A reception was held at the Merchants Hotel for 300 guests. Vases of pink, blue and white flowers decorated the table and other flowers surrounded the cake. 

The bride was graduated from the Neillsville High School with the class of ’49 and has been employed by Mrs. A. E. Russell of Neillsville for the last four years. 

The groom was graduated from the Humbird Public School and has since been engaged in farming. 

The guests at the wedding included friends and relatives from La Crosse, Sparta, Athens, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Green Bay, Shawano, Marshfield, Granton, Humbird, Spencer and Woodland. 

The couple left for a wedding trip to southern Wisconsin and will be at home at Humbird after June 28.
