Degener, Vivian (28 NOV 1913)
A very pretty wedding took place at the Albert Degener home at Chili last Friday when their only child, there daughter, Miss Vivian, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. L.A. Allen. The ceremony took place at 2:30 o’clock that afternoon, Rev. Coram of the Marshfield M.E. Church pronouncing the sacred words which united this estimable pair.
The bride was married in a travelling dress of blue and carried a bouquet of pink and white roses. She was attended by her close friend Miss Martha Berger of Neillsville. The groom’s brother George acted as best man. A delightful wedding luncheon followed the ceremony and the bridal pair with his relatives took the 4:45 p.m. train that evening for his old home at Augusta where they spent the time until Sunday.
The bride is a beautiful girl of quiet, womanly ways who ahs grown up in Chili and finished school there. Interested in music when a week tot she has taken advantage of the best opportunities offered to pursue the study of that art and always helpful to her mother about the home duties, she is today an accomplished and interesting young housekeeper, well qualified to fill the position entered upon through this marriage. The groom is a gentleman of moral soundness, free from biasing or corrupting influence, thoroughly honest and upright. He is a man of pleasant address and manners and very proficient in his position as cashier of the Chili State Bank.
This happy pair will temporarily make their home with the bride’s parents. The wedding guests just numbered an even dozen, among whom were the groom’s mother and sister Miss Lila Allen of Augusta, and his brother George whose home is in South Dakota.
That this most popular young couple may have a long and happy married life is the wish of their many friends with whom the News most heartily joins.
