Sautner, Eunice Nadine (1947)


Saturday morning, May 10, at 10 o’clock in Christ the King Catholic Church, Miss Eunice Nadine Sautner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Sautner, Spencer, and John Purvis Johnstone, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Look, Detroit, Mich., exchanged wedding vows before the Rev. Bernard Henry. The altar was decorated with spring flowers.

The bride, entering the church on the arm of her father, was attired in a white satin gown, designed with long sleeves coming to points over the wrists, a snug fitting bodice accented with a back bustle, and a long graceful skirt which swept into a court train. A gown of seed pearls held her veil of illusion edged with lace and she carried a white rosary and a bouquet of white lilies tied with white satin ribbons and orange blossom streamers.

Mrs. Robert Platzke, sister of the groom, as maid of honor, was dressed in yellow net over satin. The bodice was of lace. She carried long stemmed white lilies and yellow roses. Miss Reta Gennett and Miss Charlotte Heckel, cousins of the bride, in formal frock of aqua marquisette and matching dutch bonnets were bridesmaids. They carried mixed bouquets of spring flowers.

Robert Platze was the best man and Charles Sautner, the bride’s brother, and Robert Keyes were the groom’s attendants.

Mrs. Sautner was attired in a teal colored two-piece silk suit while the bridegroom’s other wore a dark pin striped suit. Their accessories were white and they had corsages of white and pink carnations.

After the Nuptial High Mass breakfast was served to 35 guests at the Sautner home. White streamers and a large wedding bell canopied the ceiling of the dining room. In the afternoon, 85 guests attended a reception at the home followed at 5 o’clock with a dinner for 90 guests at the church. That evening a wedding dance was given in the Municipal Hall.

Mrs. Johnstone was graduated from the Spencer High School with the class of 1944 and after completing a course at the Electronic Radio-Television Institute in Minneapolis, has been employed for the past two years with the American Airlines at Detroit, Mich.

The groom is a graduate of St. Anthony’s Parochial School, Detroit and has served in the Navy for four years. He is now employed by the Detroit City Ice and Fuel Co.

Mr. and Mrs. Johnstone left on Sunday for a wedding trip to Wisconsin Dells and returned here on Wednesday. They left Thursday for Detroit where they are at home to friends at 10011 Manning street.

Guests from away were Mrs. Wm. Look and son, James Johnstone, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Platzke, Detroit; Mr. and Mrs. Van Davis, Mr. and Mrs. Clem Brezne and family, Chippewa Falls; Mrs. Charles Gennett, Janesville; Miss Lela Pedan, Milwaukee; Mrs. Wayne Wyman, Mr. and Mrs. William Wyman, Green Bay; Mrs. Gladys Garbusch and children, Neillsville; Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Gennett, Menasha; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Bymer and family, Loyal; Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Schultz, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Schultz and family, Veefkind; Mr. and Mrs. Mark Genett and family, Mr. and Mrs. Willard Heckel and family, Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Genett and family, Mr. and Mrs, Vilas Genett and family, Miss Delores Doherty, Marshfield.
