Berg, Ethel Lillian (Marriage - 15 March 1911)


The James Finnegan home was the scene of a very pretty wedding Wednesday evening, March 15, 1911, when at 8 o’clock their only daughter Miss Ethel Lillian was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Mr. Hugh I. Berg, Rev. Mallory of Stevens Point pronouncing the sacred words which united this happy pair.  Only the immediate relatives of the contracting parties were in attendance.  The rooms were prettily decorated with flowers and ferns. The bride, charmingly gowned in blue mescaline and all over lace carried a bouquet of brides roses, was attended by Miss Lena Riedel a close friend and by Miss Nettie Berg, the groom’s sister. The groom in the regulation black was attended by his brother, Arthur and the bride’s brother, Chester. Following the ceremony a table repast most tastefully and daintily served was enjoyed.


The bride has successfully taught school the two years just passed and by her intelligence, courtesy and competency won the esteem of both pupils and parents; an endearing modest young woman who is socially a great favorite.  We have known her since when was a small girl and have noted with pleasure and interest her progress and success.  The groom, an active and efficient young man, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Berg of the Town of Fremont, who now holds and has held for the past four years, the position of assistant cashier in the Farmer’s State Bank.  He makes good in every position that he fills and in one whose future success seems assured. They will make their home here and will begin housekeeping in the handsome suite of rooms over the bank which they have completely and substantially furnished. That their life may be one of real success and true happiness is the wish of all who know them and in which we most heartily join.
