REMSEN COUPLES IN MARRIAGE VOWS
Lauters-Nothem and Reith-Hodgen Nuptials Celebrated In Past Week
Remsen Bell-Enterprise: Two more pretty wedding ceremonies in which Remsen people were principals, were solemnized Monday morning—one in St. Mary’s church in Remsen and the other in St. Joseph’s church, Sioux City.
The marriage of Miss Lucille Lauters, prominent young Remsen teacher, and Francis Nothem of Sioux City, took place at 6:30 o’clock Monday morning in St. Joseph’s Catholic church, Sioux City, with the Rev. Father Schoeffner officiating. Only a few close relatives and intimate friends attended the services. The date of the wedding had been kept a secret from the many friends of the young couple, but was announced promptly after the wedding. The attending couple were Miss Marcella Lauters, a sister of the bride, and Roman Determan, a nephew of the groom.
The bride wore a dainty dark brown chiffon velvet ensemble suit with hat and other accessories to match, while the bridesmaid wore a dress of royal blue chiffon velvet.
Following the mass, the bridal couple went to the home of the groom’s sister, Mrs. John Determan, in Sioux City, where breakfast was served for a few friends and relatives, after which Mr. and Mrs. Nothem departed on a motor trip through northern Minnesota, planning to stay and visit relatives at several places.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Lauters, east of town, and was born and reared in this community. She comes from one of the community’s most prominent families and is counted as one of the most popular and esteemed young women of this vicinity. She received her education in St. Mary’s school, completing the high school courses in 1920, and after spending a year at home, she took up the teaching profession. For several years past she has had charge of the rural school east of town which until recently was included in the Remsen Independent district. She is a young lady of charming personality, and has a host of friends who join in wishing her much happiness in her wedded life. Mr. Nothem is the youngest son of Mrs. Catherine Nothem. He was born and spent most of his life in this community. He also was a student at St. Mary’s throughout his scholastic career, and was a classmate of his bride for a number of years until graduation nine years ago. After leaving school, he found employment here for a few years and at present is employed in the office of the Cudahy Packing Co., Sioux City, where his diligence and good character have won him the utmost confidence of his employers and the esteem of his co-workers and many other friends.
After a two weeks honeymoon, Mr. and Mrs. Nothem will be at home in Sioux City.
