Matson, Anna (26 MAY 1951)

Rudolph B. Tauchen and Miss Anna L. Matson were married in Nazareth Church, Withee, Saturday, May 26, 1951, and are now on a honeymoon trip in western United States and Canada, which will include a visit to Yellowstone National Park. The Rev. Clayton Nielsen officiated at the nuptial ceremony at 2:30 p.m. last Saturday, and Miss Alice Tauchen, sister of the groom, sang "Today, O Lord, at This Altar We Stand" and "The Lord’s Prayer." The groom is a son of Mrs. Emma Tauchen of Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mrs. Tauchen is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Matson of the Town of Holway.

The bride chose for her wedding ensemble an entrained gown of white marquisette over net with lace over satin inserts, the bodice of which was styled with lace yoke over satin, and her fingertip veil edged in lace was caught to a bonnet of lace and seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations, and wore a pearl necklace, gift from the groom.

Miss Lillian Matson was her sister’s maid of honor, and Miss Alice Tauchen was bridesmaid. They wore similar gowns of marquisette over satin, the former in aqua, and the bridesmaid in pink, each with picture hat to match. The maid of honor’s bouquets was of white and blue carnations, and the bridesmaid’s of pink and white carnations. They wore pearl earrings, gifts from the bride.

Marvin Tauchen, brother of the groom, served as best man, and Herbert Tauchen, a cousin, was groomsman. Irene Matson, niece of the bride, was flower girl in a long white taffeta gown trimmed with lace and ribbon, and white hat. She wore the bride’s gift, a string of pearls, and carried a basket of mixed flowers. Lannie Peissig, nephew of the groom, was ring bearers, carrying them on a satin pillow.

A reception was held for 87 guests at the Assembly Hall, Withee, and a dance was given in Colby in the evening. At the reception, Frieda Matson and Hilda Dearth, sisters, and Helen and Alice Dearth, nieces of the bride, sang "What God Hath Promised."

The groom is engaged in farming in the Town of Mayville, and the bride taught school in Taylor County for seven years prior to her marriage. Upon their return from their honeymoon, the newlyweds will make their home on the Tauchen farm.

Bruesewitz and Arthur, Auburndale; Mr. and Mrs. John Schwartz, Colby; Alvin Ruprich, Wausau; Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Malchow, Matton; Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Peissig and family, Elgin, Ill.; Mrs. Ed Shatto, Bridger, Mont.; and Henry Thormahlen, Garland, Wyo.
