LE MARS GIRL BECOMES APRIL BRIDE
DEEGAN-TOPF NUPTIALS SOLEMNIZED
A pretty wedding was solemnized in St. James Church at 9 o’clock, when Miss
Florence Deegan became the bride of Omer Topf. Rev. L. J. Cooper officiated
and Miss Aloysius Wasmer sang, “At Dawning,” “Oh, Promise Me,” and other
hymns incidental to the ceremony.
Many friends and relatives of the happy couple were present at the nuptial
Mass. The couple was attended by Miss Genevieve Furlong, a cousin of the
bride from Dubuque, and Mr. Vincent Topf, brother of the groom.
The bride was charmingly attired in a white satin dress and a wreath and
veil. She carried a bouquet of white roses. Her maid of honor was attired in
a pale yellow dress of radium silk with hat and accessories to match. She
also carried a bouquet of yellow roses.
After the ceremony the party went to the home of the bride’s parents, Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. Deegan on 3rd Ave. S.E., where a four-course dinner was
served. The dining room was decorated in the bride’s colors, yellow and
white. The table honors were in charge of Misses Dollie Hinde, Alice Moir,
Margaret Deegan and Cecelia Deegan.
The bride is well known, having lived in and around LeMars most of her life.
The bridegroom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Topf of this city. He is also

The bride’s traveling gown was of rose-colored flat crepe, a grey tweed

other eastern points. They will be at home on the groom’s farm east of
