Pfunder, Viola (21 SEP 1910)

On Wednesday evening at eight o’clock in the M.E. Church, occurred the marriage of Miss Viola Pfunder, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.H. Pfunder, well known and respected citizens of our city (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.), to Mr. Charles F. Lusk of the village of Owen (Clark Co.)

Immediately at the hour of eight o’clock, to the beautiful strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march played by Mrs. Al. N. Simon, the bridal party led by the ushers, Lud Olson and E. Kid of Owen, and the little flower girl, Elizabeth Lusk, marched to the altar, where the ring ceremony was performed. The bride, attired in white lace over pink and carrying pink roses, preceded by the flower girl and usher with the bridesmaid following, issued forth from the side room and marched along the aisle to the altar, where the groom, attired in conventional black, best man and Reverend met them amid the beautiful decorations of autumn leaves, chrysanthemums, plants and other flowers. Here, the impressive ceremony was performed by the Rev. W.T. Hendren. The bridal party stood in the usual form with the accompanying parties in their respective positions.

After the many hearty congratulations offered by the many guests present, automobiles were driven to the door from which place they escorted the guests to the bride’s home where a reception was given by her parents.

After a delightful evening, including the serving of a bounteous and delicious repast to which the tables fairly groaned beneath its weight of rich viands, and a review of the many rich and costly presents which were given to the couple as tokens of the esteem in which they are held by a host of friends, the guests departed wishing the newlyweds many years of happy and industrious life.

The bride is one of Greenwood’s choicest ladies. From a young girl she has gown up in our midst, honored by old and young alike.

The groom is almost a stranger to us, but judging from what the bride is worthy of, he is a good and noble man. He is considered one of the substantial and coming young men of the country, who will make his mark as a worthy son of honorable parents.

The bride and groom will make their home at Owen where Mr. Lusk has his office and is a government lumber inspector.

The congratulations on the happy event are numerous and this paper is greatly pleased on this occasion to add its hearty good wishes to those being so freely extended.
