Miss Nilla Jasperson Married to Mr. Ralph Hofer of Ventura, Wednesday, December 19, 1917

Because of lack of space we were compelled to limit our mention of the marriage of Nilla Jasperson and Mr. Ralph Hofer to a local notice in our last issue. The happy ceremony was held at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Jasperson, at 10:30 on Wednesday morning, December 19. Miss Zita Quinn played the wedding march, while Miss Rose Harig and Mr. Wm. Hofer, brother of the groom, acted as bridesmaid and best man. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Father E. S. Maynard, of the Catholic church, in the presence of near relatives and a few guests. Miss Faith Stevens of Dubuque sang, “At Dawning” at the close of the ceremony. A delightful wedding breakfast was served, after which the happy couple departed for Dubuque, for a visit with relatives.

The bride is well known in Algona and is popular among the young people of the city. She graduated from the local high school in 1914. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hofer, Sr., who formerly lived on a farm two and one-half miles northwest of Ventura. They built a new home in Clear Lake and moved there last March and Ralph and his brother rented the old place, which is 240 acres, and are farming in partnership. Mr. Hofer is building a new bungalow on the farm which he and his bride will occupy as soon as completed. The best wishes of a host of Algona people follow the young couple.
