WEDDING BELLS ARE RINGING
At the home of the parents of the bride, two and a half miles southwest of
Boyden, on Wednesday, January fourth, occurred the wedding of John Peter
Lutjens and Miss Maria Katherine Rhode. The ceremony was performed by Rev.
Baetke of the German Lutheran church at three p.m., in the presence of
relatives. The bride was elegantly gowned in white silk and was supported
by Miss Bertha Lutjens. Henry Rhode supported the groom.
A reception was held at the brideís home immediately after the ceremony, and
the guests sat down to a dainty wedding luncheon at five.
The parents of the groom, Mr. and Mrs. John H. Lutjens, reside three miles
north of Boyden and are prominent people and successful farmers. The groom
has been engaged in farming for himself in Sheridan township and is a
progressive and energetic young man. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. John Rhode, who reside two and a half miles northwest of Boyden. The
Rhodes have also made farming a success and the bride has been her motherís
helper and is therefore fully qualified for her new duties. The young
people will go to housekeeping on a farm in Sheridan township.
