GEORGE MATTHIESEN WEDS
Bride Has Been Teaching School South of Remsen
Geo. Matthiesen, a well known young farmer residing in Remsen vicinity, was
married Tuesday, December 30, to Miss Margaret Arthur, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Ed Arthur, of Spring Creek, Iowa. The following report appeared in the
Spring Creek newspaper:
The ceremony was performed at six o’clock in the evening, the double ring
ceremony being used by the Rev. G. C. Lusted. Miss Grace Arthur, a sister of
the bride, was bridesmaid, and John Matthiesen, of Dysart, Iowa, a cousin of
the groom, was best man. The bridal party took their places under an arch in
which the color scheme of white and yellow was carried out.
The bride was attired in a gown of rust Canton crepe and carried an arm
bouquet of Ophelia roses. Immediately after the ceremony the guests,
including only members of the immediate family, enjoyed an elaborate dinner.
The bride is a graduate of the Spring Creek high school and has been a very
successful teacher in the rural schools in that vicinity for a number of
years. During the past two years she has been teaching south of Remsen. She
is highly respected and popular among those who know her. Mr. Matthiesen is
a son of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Matthiesen, of Remsen, where he has lived since
childhood and where he has many warm friends who wish the happy couple many
years of joy and success.
The couple will go to housekeeping on a farm south of Remsen after March 1.
