Rowan, Helen (25 OCT 1947)

St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Thorp (Clark Co.), Wis., was the setting of an impressive informal wedding at nine o’clock, Saturday morning, Oct. 25, 1947, when Rev. Arnold M. Muckerheide joined in holy matrimony, Mrs. Helen Rowan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. C. Boardman of Thorp, and Mrs. Thomas Tobola, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Tobola of Thorp.

The bride chose a cream d’ cacao suit with brown accessories and wore a cattleya orchid. Her bridesmaid, Mrs. Leo Hedler, wore a grey ballerina suit with black and white accessories. Her corsage was of pink delight roses. Mrs. Gordon Wolf wore a brown ballerina suit with brown accessories and her corsage was of yellow Gloria roses.

Attendants were Leo Hedler as best man and Gordon Wolf. Ushers at the church were Claybourne Bogumill and Fred Hedler.
