Bank Cashier Wins a Bride
Remsen Bell-Enterprise: The marriage of Miss Elizabeth Kass, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Kass, and Mrs. Clemens J. Ahmann, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Ahmann, of this city, was solemnized at St. Mary’s Catholic church
Tuesday morning by the Rev. Father Schulte. At precisely fifteen minutes
past eight the bride escorted by the groom’s brother, Henry, entered the
church, where, attracted by the popularity of the young couple, a large
number of friends awaited their coming, together with the relatives. Miss
Kass and her escort were followed by the bridegroom, who was accompanied by
the bride’s sister, Miss Emma Kass, and by Mr. Amandus Georges with Miss
Elizabeth Lotz. The bride wore brocaded crepe meteor trimmed with real
Princess lace and pearl, styled en train, and carried a shower bouquet of
roses and lilies of the valley. Miss Emma Kass was gowned in pink crepe de
chine, Miss Elizabeth Lotz in light blue brocaded charmeuse and each carried
a bouquet of pink roses.
The ceremony concluded, the bridal party received congratulations from their
waiting friends at the church entrance, after which they returned to the
home of the bride’s parents. Upon entering the reception room they were
greeted with the wedding march played by Miss Laura Meyer, a very dear
friend of the bride, after which all sat down to a bountiful breakfast. The
dining hall was decorated in the colors, pink and white. At noon a sumptuous
dinner was served, and Mr. and Mrs. Ahmann spent the remainder of the day
among only the immediate relatives.
The five thirty train bore the couple to Chicago that evening but not until
they had received many congratulations and sincere best wishes from a crowd
of young people who lingered with them at the station. They expect to return
to Remsen after spending about ten days with relatives in Chicago to make
their home on south Main street.
Mr. and Mrs. Ahmann have both been Remsen people since birth. The bride was
for two years a successful teacher in the Remsen public schools coming to
that position after having spent four years at Mt. St. Mary’s Academy,
Omaha. Mr. Ahmann is assistant cashier in the First National Bank here, a
position which he has filled very creditably for several years.
