Reineking, Margaret Ann (1947)


A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the Methodist Episcopal Church of Spencer Saturday, July 19 at 2:30 P. M. by the Rev. Raymond J. Fleming, when Miss Margaret Ann Reineking, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Reineking of the Town of Spencer and Vernon W. Stevens, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edd. Stevens of the Town of Sherman exchanged marriage vows.

The bride chose a gown of white ninon fashioned with a sweetheart neckline with a modified Queen Anne collar of ruching. A full skirt with train edged with a wide band of ruching fell from a close fitting bodice. Her finger tip veil was of illusion and was held in place by a brim encircled with orange blossoms and the bride’s bouquet was of pink roses and white gladioli.

The maid of honor, Miss Pauline Reineking, sister of the bride, wore white net over white satin. Mrs. John Reineking, Milwaukee, sister-in-law of the bride was bridesmaid, her gown also was of white ninon. Both attendants carried bouquets of white gladioli and pink roses and wore rhinestone bracelets, gifts of the bride.

The Grooms attendants were Robert Speich of Greenwood, a friend of the groom, as best man and John Reineking of Milwaukee, brother of the bride.

The bride’s mother witnessed her daughter’s wedding dressed in an afternoon frock of rose and black print and wore black accessories while the groom’s mother was gowned in brown crepe and wore gold accessories. Both ladies wore carnation corsages.

The bride is a graduate of the Athens High School and Wood County Normal and taught last year and has been engaged again to teach the 3rd and 4th grades of the Spencer Public School. The groom is a graduate of the Loyal High School, saw service with the U. S. Paratroopers in World War 2 and at present is employed by the Spencer Co-op Oil Company.

A reception of 200 guests was held at the home of the bride’s parents and a 5 o’clock wedding dinner was served in the beautifully decorated dining hall of the Methodist church. The color scheme of pink and white streamers, baskets of garden flowers and ferns and pink and white candles was used. The bridal couple left immediately for Columbus, Georgia here they will visit Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Schaefner, the latter, who also taught the last year at Spencer High and will also tour through the southern states, and will be at home at the Edd. Stevens residence, Town of Sherman, after August 15.

Out of town relatives and friends present for the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. J. Reineking; Wm. Reineking, Kathleen Brehm, Warren Lundwall and Richard Reineking, Waupaca[;] Carl and Arthur Weiss, Stillwater, Minn.; Frank, William and Ray Weis and Mr. and Mrs. Ewald Brehm and family, Athens; Mr. and Mrs. Harold Oehler, Dorchester; Andrew Weis Racine; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Frank and family and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Frank Jr., Marshfield; Mrs. Vera Neubauer, Menominee; the Misses Grace Lepak, Hatley; and Catharine Veers, Rosellville; Mr. and Mrs. William Schmidtke[,] Granton; Mrs. Mable Austin, Price and Rollo Welch, Rockford, Ill.; Mrs. Paul Sutherland and Mrs. Herman Seers, Milwaukee; Miss Cora Reinheimer, Marshfield; and Anton Duermeyer, Greenwood.
