DeSombre - Engelhardt
Miss Clemawelle DeSombre and Lester A. Engelhardt exchanged marriage vows,
Sunday evening, in St. John's Evangelical and Reformed church. The Rev. E.R.
Krueger officiated at the 7:30 p.m. candlelight service.
Seated in the front pews were parents of the couple, Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand
DeSombre, 2220 N. Tenth street, and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Engelhardt, 1634 N.
Prior to the ceremony, Mrs. J. Nelson Jung, organist, presented a short
recital of appropriate music, and before the entrance of the bridal party,
the Girls' choir sang "Tell Me Why." During the nuptials the same group
presented "Because," and following the marriage, Miss Janet Fistler, soloist,
sang "The Lord's Prayer."
The bride was escorted to the front of the church by her father. She was
preceded by her sister-in-law, Mrs. Oliver DeSombre of Milwaukee, as matron
of honor, Mrs. Edgar Engelhardt, sister-in-law of the bridegroom, and Miss
Marion Engelhardt, his niece, as bridesmaid, and Julianne DeSombre, the
bride's niece of Milwaukee, who was the junior attendant.
Nick Kochelmeier served as best man, and ushers were Oliver DeSombre and
Edgar Engelhardt, brothers of the couple.
On Saturday evening, parents of the bride entertained at the bridal dinner at
the Grand Hotel, and Sunday evening, following the service, relatives and
friends gathered at the 99 hall for the reception.
Mr. Engelhardt and his bride have left on a two weeks' honeymoon, the
destination of which was not disclosed. After July 15, they will be residing
in their newly furnished flat at 1632 N. Twelfth street. The bride, who has
been associated with the church in which she was married for a number of
years, is employed at the Hand Knit Hosiery Co. Her husband works for the
Armour Leather Co.
