Sorenson, Laverne (1948)


Now on a three weeks wedding trip to Burbank, California are Mr. and Mrs. Maynard Wachholz, whose marriage took place Saturday, June 5.

After a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Edward Wachholz and daughter, Lynda at Burbank the couple will reside on the farm home north of here recently purchased by the groom.

The former Miss Laverne Sorenson, Milwaukee, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hans Sorenson, Warrens, and Mr. Wachholz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wachholz of Spencer, repeated their marriage vows before the Rev. C. E. Berg of Tomah at the home of the bride’s, brother-in-law and sister Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Gehrke, Tomah.

Mrs. Wachholz chose for her wedding costume a tailored white gabardine suit with gold trim, white picture hat and white accessories. A corsage of American beauty roses with lilies of the valley lent color to the ensemble.

The maid of honor, Miss [unreadable]ma Wachholz, sister of the bridegroom wore a two piece pink linen dress styled with a white eyelet bustle and completed her attire with white accessories. Her corsage was of pink roses and gardenias.

Lawrence Sorenson, brother of the bride, served as best man.

The bride’s mother wore grey with black accessories and the mother of the groom wore navy blue with navy blue accessories.

Out of town guests at the wedding reception and dinner held at the Gehrke home that evening included Mr. and Mrs. Harold Alfter and Mr. and Mrs. Gerhard Ziehlsdorf, Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Norman Wachholz and son, Robert, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wachholz and sons Donald and Herbert, and Charles Audre, all of Spencer.

The bride has been employed by the Allis-Chalmers Company in Milwaukee the past five years and her husband has been an employee of the Plankington Packing House there for six years.

The Record joins their many local friends in extending congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy wedded life.
