Hoeft, Elsie (Marriage - 24 Nov. 1956) 

Miss Elsie Hoeft, of Abbotsford, and Herman Fitzlaff, of Little Black, were united in marriage Saturday, Nov. 24, at the parsonage of St. Peter’s Lutheran church, Dorchester. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler performed the double ring ceremony at 12:30 o’clock. 

Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Emil Hoeft, Milan, brother and sister-in-law of the bride. 

With her cinnamon brown suit, the bride wore a winter white hat and brown pumps. Her corsage was made of red roses and white chrysanthemums. 

Her matron of honor pinned a corsage of red carnations and white mums to the shoulder line of her forest green crepe dress. 

A 4:00 o’clock supper was served to 25 guests at the home of the groom’s cousin, Mrs. Fred Woempner, at Abbotsford. Centering the table was a decorated wedding cake and candles tied with satin ribbons. Green and white decorations were used in the home. 

Guests came from Morris and Chicago, Ill.; Milan, Chippewa Falls, Dorchester and Abbotsford. 

In the evening, two groups of friends came to charivari the bridal couple. 

Mr. and Mrs. Hoeft are now at home to friends in Little Black.
