Wilde, Edna Helen (Marriage –1 November 1958) 

The St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Sherwood was the scene of the wedding November 1, when Edna Helen Wilde of Thiensville, became the bride of Ivan Schwanebeck of Pittsville.  Rev. E. T. Keller performed the double ring ceremony. 

The bride wore a waltz-length princess style white taffeta dress and carried a bouquet of golden scepter roses. 

She chose her sister, Mrs. Ruth Wegmann, as matron of honor, and Joyce Schwanebeck, sister of the groom, as bridesmaid.  Each wore a waltz-length royal blue taffeta dress and carried a bouquet of white and yellow ‘mums.  The bride’s niece, Christine Wegmann, acted as flower girl and was dressed in royal blue taffeta dress and carried a bouquet of white and yellow ‘mums. 

The groom chose his brother, Wayne, as best man.  The bride’s brother, Edgar Wilde, was groomsman.  Albert Hasz and Kenneth Wilde acted as ushers.  

Mrs. Roland Sherwood sang, "The Lord’s Prayer," and "Blest be the Tie that Binds," accompanied by Mrs. Donald Sherwood at the organ. 

The young couple will make their home with the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Schwanebeck of Sherwood, where he is engaged in farming.
