Ampe, Helen J. (12 JUL 1940)
Ampe-Ewert Rites Held at Neillsville
At the eleventh hour, Saturday, July 12, 1941, was witnessed a lovely wedding of the season, that of Miss Helen J. Ampe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Achille Ampe, Loyal, to Arlyn L. Ewert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ewert, Unity. Their nuptial vows were solemnized before Judge Schroengarth at Neillsville. The bride was attired in a white satin gown cut on princess lines and fashioned with venetian lace. Her long white marquisite veil and sweetheart cap were designed in place by an arrangement of orange blossoms. The colonial flowers she carried were fashioned on lines in keeping with the theme of the day, a suggestion of patriotic symbolism ensuing. Miss Pauline Ampe, twin sister of the bride, was gowned in floor-length aqua satin with a pictorial hat to match. Her wrist bouquet was of Rubrum lilies and babysbreath. Paul Ampe, twin brother of the bride, was attired in a suite of helbor blue and he attended the groom, who wore a suit of an oxford stripe with a carnation boutonniere.
A wedding dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents, covers being laid for the immediate participants. The bride was graduated from the Loyal high school with the class of 1940 and thereupon attended and was graduated from the Wisconsin Academy of Cosmetic Arts at Milwaukee. Until the time of her marriage, she was employed in beauty culture at Wisconsin Rapids. The groom, a graduate of the Unity high school in 1938 attended the La Crosse College of Commerce for two years, from which time he assisted on his father’s farm. After a tour of northern Wisconsin the happy couple will be at their farm home in the town of Unity which is entering its third generation of the Ewerts as they are purchasing the farm from the groom’s parents.
