Herman, Henrietta J. (Marriage - 12 FEB 1955)

Father Edward Eschweiler officiated in the ten o’clock marriage ceremony at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on Saturday, Feb. 12, 1955, for Miss Henrietta J. Herman and John P. Sorger. 

The daughter of Mrs. Lucille Herman, 323 Arlington St., formerly of Gilman, wore a waltz length gown of imported net and lace.  The fitted lace bodice had a net yoke topped with a band of lace scalloped on both edged which formed a standup collar.  The lace sleeves were long and tapered and the same lace in pleats formed the front of the net skirt.  A shallow crown of pearls held her waist length scalloped edged veil.  Her bouquet was of red roses and lilies of the valley. 

Miss Herman chose her sister-in-law, Mrs. Ella Mae Herman, to be her matron of honor, who wore a ballerina length gown of American beauty shade with a net ruffled skirt.  She had a matching hat styled headpiece and her flowers were white carnations and yellow roses.  White ballerina gowns were worn by the bridesmaids, Charlotte Lind, Betty and Margaret Sorger, sisters of the groom.  Their skirts were fashioned with two tiers of net ruffles.  They carried bouquets of yellow carnations and red roses.  Penny Sorger was the flower girl. 

The bride was given in marriage by her uncle, Peter Herman of Gilman. 

The groom who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Sorger, route 3, asked Leo Herman to be his best man.  The ushers were William Mills, James Korb and John Sommers.  Nick DiSandro was the ring bearer. 

Mrs. Herman was attired in a blue gray dress with gold accessories for her daughter’s wedding.  The groom’s mother wore a charcoal gray dress with white accessories.  Both had pink carnation corsages. 

An evening reception was held at the Eagles Hall with music furnished by Clarence Fleming Orchestra. 

The bride was graduated from Gilman High School.  The groom is employed at Waukesha Motor Co.  Motor Hill Courts will be their home.
