Behrents, Ruth E. (Marriage - 8 June 1957) 

A gown of white brocade was chosen by Miss Ruth E. Behrents to wear as she became the bride of Ernest L. Solberg Saturday afternoon at the Christ Lutheran church. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler read the 1:30 service. 

The former Miss Behrents, of Prairie du Chien, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Einer A. Behrents, Abbotsford. The groom is the son of Mrs. Anna Solberg, Ferryville. 

The bride’s dress of white brocade was ballerina length, made with a V-neck and short sleeves. Her veil was shoulder length, and the bouquet she carried was made of white carnations, red roses and stephanotis. 

The maid of honor, Miss Phyllis M. Behrents, wore a gown of turquoise brocade styled like her sister’s. She carried white carnations and red roses. 

Murie Tisthshammer, Milwaukee, nephew of the groom, served as best man. Ushers were Arleigh Hansen, South Wayne, cousin of the bride, and Peter Tisthammer, Jr., nephew of the groom. 

Miss Elsie Bush, Dorchester, sang "The Lord’s Prayer" and "At Dawning," accompanied on the organ by Herbert Juneau, Abbotsford. 

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, after the ceremony. 

Before her marriage, the new Mrs. Solberg was Crawford county home agent in Prairie du Chien. 

Following a wedding trip in northern Wisconsin, the couple will be home on Rt. 2, Ferryville, where the groom farms.
