Hingiss, Catherine (Marriage - 24 Aug. 1940)

The Congregational church at Owen was the scene of a pretty fall wedding Saturday afternoon when Miss Catherine Hingiss, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Hingiss of the town of Green Grove, became the bride of Lawrence Scheel, son of Mrs. William Scheel of the town of Green Grove.

The ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. P. D. Powe.

Little Beverly Scheel, a niece of the bride and groom, led the wedding procession as ring bearer and flower girl. Attired in a blue taffeta dress, she carried the ring on a pillow of sweet peas and dropped flower petals in front of the bride.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was gowned in white brocaded satin made with a long train. Her silk net veil was worn with a crown of seed pearls and diamond brocade. White gladioli and bride’s roses were her flowers.

Her bridesmaids were dressed in blue chiffon with pink shoulder-length veils. Each wore a wrist bouquet of sweet peas and roses.

They were met at the flower-decorated platform by the bridegroom and his attendants, William Hingiss, Jr., the bride’s brother, and Addie Hardrath, the bride’s nephew.

Miss Betty Dike presided at the organ, and Miss Rachel Halvorson sang "O Promise Me" and "At Dawning" during the ceremony.

Approximately 70 relatives attended the dinner and reception held at the home of the bride’s parents after the ceremony.

The young couple will make their home in Chicago where the bridegroom is employed.
