Grap, June (Marriage - 30 June 1956) 

On Saturday, June 30, at 10 a.m. Miss June Grap, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick L. Grap of Globe, became the bride of Clarence Huettenrauch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Huettenrauch of Milwaukee.  The ceremony was performed in St. Peter’s Lutheran Church of Milwaukee, the Rev. Christian Breest reading the service.  Miss JoAnn Grap sang two selections, "O Perfect Love," and "The Lord’s Prayer." 

A scoop neckline detailed the white silk crystallite gown worn by the bride.  Her veil was held by a crown of lace and sequins.  Her flowers were a white orchid surrounded by red rose buds and stephanotis in a bouquet.  The wedding day was the bride’s birthday.  For something old she carried a white handkerchief which had been carried by her great-grandmother Grap on her wedding day 100 years ago. 

Miss Patricia King of Nelson was maid of honor.  Miss JoAnn Grap, sister of the bride, and Miss Mildred Sladek of Loyal were bridesmaids, while a younger sister, Miss Susan Grap, was junior bridesmaid. 

The bestman was Edward Chase of Milwaukee.  The bride’s brothers, Ronald Grap, of Rockford, Ill., and Frederick F. Grap, served as ushers.  A younger brother, Lewis Grap, was a junior usher. 

The bride was gradated from the Neillsville High School in 1952 and has been employed in Milwaukee four years.  The groom is a draughtsman with a Milwaukee firm and is serving in the army reserve.  The couple will reside in Milwaukee.  The bride’s parents, her brothers and sisters and her grandmother, Mrs. Ferdinand Grap, attended the wedding. 

A reception was held Saturday evening at the Grap home at Globe for relatives and friends.  There were guests at the reception from Milwaukee, Hales Corners, nelson, Loyal, Granton, and from Rockford, Ill.   

The couple left Saturday evening on a wedding trip.  They returned late last week and spent the weekend at the home of the bride’s parents, to be present for confirmation at the Globe Lutheran Church on July 8.  Lewis Grap, brother of the bride, was a member of the class, and for this event, Mr. and Mrs. Grap entertained a group of relatives and friends including sponsors for their son.
