Principals Came Here From Germany Three Years Ago
Miss Bertha Bender and Matthias Stoos were united in marriage at St.
Joseph’s church on Tuesday morning. The young people were attended by Miss
Katherine Bender, a sister of the bride, and Henry Stoos, a brother of the
groom. A few relatives and friends witnessed the ceremony, which took place
a half past nine, Rev. Father Feuerstein officiating.
The bride wore a tailor made suit of dark blue with a corsage bouquet of
violets and carried a white prayer book. The bridesmaid wore an Alice blue
tailor made suit with accessories to match.
Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served at the home of Louis
Schafer on Park street.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Stoos are recent arrivals in this country, coming here
three years ago from Germany, their native place. The bride has been
employed at the Huckley farm west of town, and the groom has been farming
with his brother near Remsen.
Mr. and Mrs. Stoos will make their home on a farm near Struble after March
