Deutschlander, Dorothy (1 DEC 1956)


Miss Dorothy Deutschlander, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Deutschlander of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Mr. Thomas Barnhardt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Barnhardt of Milwaukee, in a double ring ceremony performed by Father Francis Piekarski at 10:00 Saturday morning, Dec. 1st, 1956, at St. Hedwig’s Church.


Attending the couple as best man and first bridesmaid were Bill Barnhardt, Milwaukee, brother of the groom, and Ione Simet of Thorp.  Other attending couples were Edward Deutschlander Jr., brother of the bride, of Chicago, and Judy Papierniak and Jack Barnhardt, brother of the groom, of Eau Claire and Annette Hokanson of Milwaukee.  Jerry Kudingo, the bride’s cousin and Clinton Martin served as ushers.


The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in a gown of lace and net over taffeta, chapel length, and was fashioned with fitted lace bodice neckline and long tapering sleeves.  She wore a lace handkerchief skirt over bouffant net skirt of tier ruffles over taffeta and a jeweled tiara held the imported silk illusion veil.


The bridesmaids wore dresses of chiffon over net and taffeta, styled ballet length with fitted bodice, draped neckline with off the shoulder effect ending in a Grecian type stole.  They wore bouffant skirts over net and taffeta in peacock shade.  They wore matching colored Demi-pill box hats of ostrich feathers.


The bride is a graduate of Thorp High School and Eau Claire vocational school, and has been employed in the office of the Thorp Finance Corp. here.  The groom graduated from Eau Claire High School and is a draftsman with the General Controls Corp at Milwaukee.


The reception was attended by about 250 guests at the St. Hedwig’s Parish Hall where dinner and supper were served.
