Prominent, Plymouth County Families Are United By Marriage

(By Special Correspondent)
A wedding of much interest took place on Wednesday afternoon at the Trinity
Lutheran Church in Lincoln township, when Miss Beatrice Stoewer became the
bride of Harvey Muecke.

The bridal party entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin’s bridal
chorus played by Miss Clara Ideker. The bride looked charming in a frock of
white crepe satin trimmed with Spanish lace and a girdle of seed pearls, a
veil worn in frill effect and surmounted by a band of orange blossoms
completed the costume. The bride carried an arm bouquet of tea roses and
lilies of the valley, tied with white tulle. The only ornament worn was a
string of pearls, a gift of the groom. The bridesmaid, Miss Bernice Stoewer
was dressed in yellow satin messaline and carried a bouquet of yellow and
white sweet peas, tied with yellow tulle. The groom was attended by his
cousin, Ralph Ideker, the groom and best man wearing the conventional dark

Just preceding the ceremony Miss Clara Ideker sang, “I Love You Truly.” The
impressive ring ceremony was performed by Rev. R. J. Torgler. Immediately
following the guests, numbering about seventy-five, drove to the bride’s
home where a reception was given. The happy couple received hearty
congratulations. The house was decorated in yellow and white, the bride’s
colors. Streamers of white and yellow crossed from corner to corner and in
the center a large bell was suspended. The table appointments were also
carried out in these colors. A large wedding cake made an appropriate and
attractive center piece. An elaborate course dinner was served by the
Misses Amanda Ideker, Irene Kohl, Clara Ideker, Irene Nugent, Vera Ideker
and Hattie Schultz, close friends of the bride, who wore assisted by Mrs.
Gus Schultz, Mrs. Ben Braband and Mrs. Hauschild, who were dining room

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Stoewer of Stanton township and
grew to womanhood in this community. By her excellent qualities and winning
disposition she numbers her friends by her acquaintances. She is a talented
and accomplished musician, having been a member of the church choir for
several years. She is well fitted to grace the home she will adorn. The
groom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Muecke of Lincoln township
and has lived there all his life and is an upright and industrious young man
of sterling qualities and splendid character.

The young folks start their wedded life with brightest prospects and will go
to housekeeping on the groom’s farm four miles south of Neptune.
