Hannan, Dorothy #2 (27 SEP 1950)


Now at home in Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.) after honeymooning in Canada and other points of interest, are Mr. and Mrs. Howard Sturtz Jr., who were married at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27, 1950 in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, with the Rev. Norbert King officiating.


Mr. and Mrs. Ray Hannan of Loyal, Route 2, are the bride’s parents, while the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Sturtz Sr. of Loyal.


The bride was escorted to the altar by her father, who presented her in marriage.  Her gown of white satin and lace was fashioned with a lace yoke, and high neckline, long sleeves and train.  Her blusher veil of illusion extended to her fingertips.  It was secured to a lace bonnet embroidered with seed pearls, and she carried a white orchid surrounded by yellow roses and white carnations.


Attending the bride were Mrs. Russell Lyons, Neillsville, as maid of honor, and Miss Annette Hannan, both sisters of the bride, and Miss Donna Bardell, Spencer, the bride’s cousins, as bridesmaids.  All were gowned alike in forest green satin gowns with full hoop skirts and matching mitts and headdresses.  Each carried a bouquet of bronze pompons and yellow and white mums.


James Hannan, the bride’s brother, was the best man, and Carrol Catlin and Lloyd Zimmerman, friends of the groom, were the groomsmen.


Ushering for the ceremony were Robert Hannan, the bride’s brother, and Donald Sturtz, brother of the groom.


A wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride’s parents where a reception was held in the afternoon.  A dinner was served to 70 guests in the church auditorium.  It was decorated with white and green streamers and white wedding bells.  Tables were decorated with white carnations and cut flowers.


Both the bride and groom are graduates of Loyal High School.  The bride, also a graduate of St. Joseph’s School of Medical Technology, is a member of Epsilon Sigma Alpha sorority.  She is employed at the Clinic in Monroe as a medical technician.


The groom is the owner of Howie and his Swing Kings Orchestra.  He also operates Howie’s Music and Camera store here.


Guests from Sparta, Madison, Athens, Neillsville, Spencer, Rudolph and Granton attended the wedding.


The Tribune joins the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Sturtz in wishing them many years of happy wedded life.


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