Bauer, Virginia Frances  (30 NOV 1946)


Two residents of Loyal, Miss Virginia Frances Bauer and Allen Eugene Seefluth exchanged wedding vows at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, in the rectory of St. Anthony’s Catholic church, before the Rev. Fr. Aloys Zinthefer. Mrs. Emma Seefluth is the groom’s mother.


The bride, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roland Bauer, was attired in white brocaded ninon, designed in princess style and made with a sweetheart neck line and long sleeves ending in points over the wrists. A crown of seed pearls held her long veil of illusion and she carried red roses and white pompoms. Her pearls were a gift of the groom.


Miss Arlene Bauer, as her sister’s maid of honor, was dressed in yellow brocaded taffeta. The bodice was snug fitting, and the skirt was long and full. A matching headdress of gathered ribbon completed her costume, and a corsage of yellow and bronze pompoms was pinned to her shoulder.


Miss Leatrice Seefluth, the groom’s sister, was bridesmaid. Her ensemble was like that worn by the maid of honor, except that it was blue. Yellow and white pompoms were in her corsage. Both girls wore pearls, gifts from the bride.


Mrs. Bauer wore a black suit, trimmed with grey, and a corsage of red roses for her daughter’s wedding. Mrs. Seefluth was present in a black dress, trimmed with sequins. Her corsage consisted of red and white carnations.


Brothers of the bride and groom, Wallace Bauer and Ralph Seefluth, attended the groom.


Supper was served to 50 guests at the Bauer home, decorated with white, blue and yellow streamers and a large wedding bell. A three-tier wedding cake, adorned with a miniature bride and groom, centered the table. Elaine Gotter and Norma Young waited on table. A wedding cake and miscellaneous shower were given in the Spencer community hall in the evening.


Mr. and Mrs. Seefluth are residing in Loyal. She graduated from the Loyal high school in 1944 and is employed at the Loyal café. Mr. Seefluth is an employee of the Northwest Distributing Company at Colby.


A highlight of the day was the salute offered to the young couple by Bob Johnson, a cousin of the bride, who flew over the bauer home just before the ceremony and dipped his plane’s wings.


Guests included: Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Seefluth and Lorraine Elstrom of Colby, Hank Trampush of Greenwood, Mr. and Mrs. Anton Hubing and family of Neillsville, Oscar Oestreich, Mr. and Mrs. Axel Helm and daughter, Florence, Mrs. Mary Hubing, Mrs. Joe Schultz, Frank Bauer, Lois  and Donald Schultz, Ray Hubing and the Joe Hubing family, all of Loyal.


The Loyal Tribune extends to the young couple its wishes for happiness.
