Dale & Opal Eltiste
Married - Sunday, February 27, 1944
Saint John's Lutheran Church
Nemaha County, Nebraska
Rang Out at St. John's Lutheran church at 7 o'clock,
were united in marriage before the same altar where their
baptismal and confirmation vows were said. The pastor, the
Rev. G. K. Wiencke, read the lines of the impressive service, using the
double ring ceremony. The bride was dressed in a two-piece suit of
powder blue crepe trimmed in appliqué embroidery and wore a
lovely corsage of sweet peas, and the groom wore a dark suit and
white boutonnière. Alice Torbeck was bridesmaid and wore
afternoon frock of brown crepe trimmed in chiffon. The best man,
W. Kenton Eltiste wore a brown suit.
Using the Psalm verse "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places,
yea, I have a goodly heritage." the pastor spoke of the joy of this
their wedding day, and of the Christian hope of eternal heritage as an
anchor for their future life together. Present for the ceremony were
the immediate families of the bridal pair. The music for the occasion
"Bridal Chorus" from Wagner's Lohengrin
and the choral "Jesus Still Lead On."
After the ceremony a bounteous wedding supper was served
at the bride's home by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Torbeck.
The table was set with white embroidered cloth and decorated with
tapers in tall crystal candelabra. A large bouquet of pink and white
sweet peas formed the centerpiece.
Guests were: Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Eltiste, Mr. and Mrs. W. Kenton Eltiste
and Ronald Gene, and Rev. and Mrs. G. K. Wiencke.
Mr. and Mrs. Dale Eltiste are receiving the hearty congratulations
of a host of friends. The bride has been reared in our community and is
one of our most accomplished young women. She has always been
most generous of her talents, especially in music, for the pleasure
and good of all. The groom is a progressive farmer, having come to
this community from Overton, and has made his home while here,
with Mr. and Mrs. Harry Eltiste.
The newly married couple will make their home on the
groom's farm near Vesta.
Our sincere good wishes are expressed for their
happiness and prosperity.
