Miss Ellen Rademacher and Mrs. Verne Rohrs.

These well known young people proceeded to the parsonage

of the English Lutheran church where the ceremony that made

Ritzen. The bride  and groom were accompanied to the

parsonage by a company of friends and relatives who

witnessed the ceremony. Both are very well known in this

community. The bride is a daughter of Hy Rademacher

who lives south of Johnson and is a young woman who

fully deserves the respect and admiration that have always

been bestowed upon her. She is charming and accomplished

and held in the very highest esteem by all who know her.


The groom is employed at the Andresen grocery and is a

might fine young man. He is the son of Fred H. Rohrs and

having been born and raised in this community the people

have been able to judge of his worth and the verdict has been

entirely in his favor. No young man is more respected and

trusted. Mr. and Mrs. Rohrs will make their home in this

city and their friends trust that the years to come may

bring them the full measure of happiness and prosperity.
