Degenhardt, Dorothy Jean (Marriage - 6 July 1963)


Nuptial vows were exchanged Saturday in a double ring ceremony in Loyal, uniting in marriage Miss Dorothy Jean Degenhardt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Degenhardt of Rt. 2, Loyal, and Donald Rottschert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Ausbourne of Rt. 2, Spencer. The 10 a.m. nuptial mass was read by the Rev. Fr. Norbert E. King.  Baskets of pastel gladioli decorated the altar.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, was attired in a floor-length gown of Chantilly lace. The fitted Basque bodice was styled with a jewel trimmed Sabrina neckline and long, tapered sleeves. The full, hoop skirt of lace over taffeta was styled with net ruffles and all-around tiers ending in a chapel sweep.  Her fingertip veil of silk illusion was attached to a crystal trimmed crown. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses surrounded by white gardenias and lilies-of-the-valley, centered with a white orchid.  Streamers entwined with red rose buds and lilies-of-the-valley cascaded from the bouquet.


Miss Barbara Degenhardt of Loyal was maid-of-honor for her sister.  Bridesmaid was Miss Eileen Ausbourne of Spencer.  They wore street length dresses of orchid nylon sheer with draped necklines and cap sleeves.  A smooth fitting mid-riff topped the fully gathered skirts, which were accented in the back by a self-fabric rose and a sash.  The halo veils were attached to matching crowns trimmed with seed pearls. They carried white carnation bouquets centered with white orchids.


Allen Rottschert of Spencer was bestman. Groomsman was Darrell Brost of Marshfield; ushers were Paul Degenhardt and Bob Rottschert.


Mr. and Mrs. Rottschert are both high school graduates and are employed in factory work in St. Paul, Minn.
