Worm, Antionette  (? 02 JUNE 1946)


In nuptials performed at 9 o’clock last Tuesday morning at St. Joseph’s Catholic church in Conway, Ark., Miss Antoinette Worm. Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Worm of Conway, Ark., became the bride of Gerald Frank Elsinger, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Elsinger Sr. of Loyal.


The Rev. Anthony Lachowsky read the double ring ceremony before the altar, which was banked with fern, interspersed with floor baskets of calla lilies and hydrangeas and branched floor candelabra holding white cathedral tapers.


Nuptial music was in charge of Sister Theogene, S.S.N.D., organist, Mass. "In Honor of  Our Lady of Mount Carmal," by A. Jawlck, was sung by the junior choir, and at the offertory, "Ave Maria" was sung by Misses Monica Strack and Catherine Favre. The organist used a processional by Bottazzo and a recessional, "March Characteristics."


The bride, who entered on the arm of her father and was given in marriage by him, was gowned in a Victorian wding dress of skinner’s white slipper satin fashioned with net undersleeves, hoped skirt and short train. Her fingertip veil of illusion fell from a coronet of orange blossoms. She carries a white prayer book which was ornamented with white satin ribbons and snapdragons.


Miss Lucille Worm, sister of the bride, as maid of honor, wore a pink gown made with basque lace bodice with sweetheart neckline and flowing marquisette skirt. Her headdress was a sequins evening cap with pink shoulder veil. Mrs. Martin P. Strack, also a sister of the bride and matron of honor, wore,wore a yellow lace and marquisette and a headdress of gold sequins evening cap with yellow shoulder veil. They carried hand bouquets of mixed flowers.


Frederick Worm, cousin of the bride, served the bridegroom as best man, and Andrew Worm, brother of the bride, was groomsman. Ushers were Eugene Meyer and Lawrence Strack.


A wedding breakfast at the home of the bride’s parents followed the ceremony. The table was covered with a white linen cloth and centered with a three-tiered wedding cake encircled with rosebuds. White candles in crystal candelabra further ornamented the serving table. There were 56 guests. A reception was held at the family home during the afternoon. The bride’s mother wore a navy blue dress with white carnation corsage. Miss Monica Strack was in charge of the bride’s book.


Among those present at the wedding was Mrs. Richard Rueter of Pryor, Okla, a sister of the bridegroom.


Following the reception, the couple came to Loyal for a wedding trip.


The bride is a graduate of St. Joseph high school and Draughon’s business college in Conway. She has been employed by the veterans administration at Little Rock. Mr. Elsinger recently was discharged as a sergeant from the army air force. He was stationed at Adams field in Little Rock. He is now employed at Milwaukee, where the couple will reside.


To the newlyweds, The Loyal Tribune extends its wishes for happiness.
