Grigg, Jean  (10 July 1948)


Now on a honeymoon at Spooner are Mr. and Mrs. Milton Greve, who were married at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 10. The Rev. Nathan an. Bartel officiated at the Wauwatosa Evangelical church in Milwaukee. The church was beautifully decorated with cut flowers and candles.


Mrs. Greve is the former Miss Jean Grigg, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Grigg of Whitefish Bay, while the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Greve of Unity.


They were attended by a friend of the bride, Shirley Mueller of Milwaukee, as maid of honor, and Gene Greve, a brother of the groom, as best man. Romaine Gotter and James Grigg ushered.


The bride’s gown was fashioned of white satin, with a lace edged net yoke, full sleeves, tiny buttons in the back, which was colonial effect, with a train. Her fingertip veil was edged with lace to match the gown. She carried a white arm bouquet of roses, snapdragons and lace flowered. Her attendant wore light blue taffeta, with matching headdress and elbow length gloves of the same color. She carried an arm bouquet of red roses. The groom and best man both wore gray suits.


Mr. Grigg gave his daughter in marriage. Willis Prather sang "Because" and "Ich Liebe Dich" ("I Love You"), accompanied by Mrs. Morgan at the organ.


The bride’s mother wore pink crepe and wore a corsage of white roses, and the groom’s mother wore gray crepe and a corsage of pink roses.


At 7 o’clock a dinner was served at the bride’s home to 20 guests, after which a reception for about 60 guests was given at Smith Park lodge. Out-of-town guests from Chicago, st. Paul, New Holstein, South Milwaukee, Keil, Unity and Oakland were present for the occasion.


The groom graduated from Loyal high school with the class of 1939, and he is a veteran of 39 months service in World War ll.


To the newlyweds, The Loyal Tribune extends its heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future.
