Walter, Clara (19 FEB 1955)


Clara Walter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Walter, became the bride of Raymond Scharpf, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Scharpf, Rubicon, Wis., during a 9:30 nuptial mass at St. John’s Catholic Church, Rubicon, on Saturday, Feb. 19, 1955.  Father Francis Weiss officiated at the ceremony.


Given in marriage by her father, the bride approached the altar wearing a gown of nylon tulle and appliqu? lace.  The creation was styled with a long sleeved filled bodice and nylon yoke, which was detailed with a sequin trim and shirred tulle.  The full skirt of fine ruffles edged with appliqu? lace fell gracefully to the floor, as did the train, which was also detailed with ruffles and lace.  Her fingertip veil was of French illusion style edged in silk lace, was caught to a beaded tiara.  She carried a colonial bouquet of red roses and white stephanotis.


The matron of honor, Mr. Gerald Lentz, Milwaukee, sister of the bride, and the bridesmaids, Mrs. Lyle Berge, Milwaukee, another sister of the bride, and Anne Huebschen, Hartford, niece of the groom, wore plum green and shrimp colored gowns respectively.  The satin and tulle gowns were fashioned with satin bodices having ruffles detailed at the bust lines.  The full skirts of tulle over satin were in ruffle style.  The jackets, with elbow length sleeves and winged collars were also satin and buttoned at the front.  The headpieces were adorned with tiny flowers and pearls.  They wore pearl necklaces and earrings, a gift from the bride, and carried bouquets of carnations and stephanotis, dyed to match their gowns.


Donald Grinwald, Watertown, a cousin of the groom, was best man.  Donald Multhauf, Rubicon, another cousin of the groom, and John Walter, Loyal, brother of the bride, also attended the groom.


Ushers were Leander Heppner and Donald Klink, nephews of the groom.  Jack and Joe Deitenberger were mass servers.


The mothers wore dusty rose suits.  The bride’s mother wore black accessories while the groom’s mother had navy accessories.  Both wore white and blue carnations.


Dinner and supper were served at the church parlors.  Approximately 120 guests were present.  In the evening a dance was held at Fireman’s Hall, Neasho.


The couple, who are both employed at the West Bend Aluminum Co. will live at Rubicon following a southern honeymoon.
