Regina D. Barkmeier
In a ceremony solemnized at St. Stephen's Catholic Church at 9 o'clock on Tuesday morning July 30, 1946, Miss Regina Barkmeier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Barkmeier, became the bride of Maurice J. Clark, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Clark of McCool Junction. The Nuptial High Mass was preceded by a double ring ceremony performed by the Very Rev. John F. Ekeler, V.P., of Crete, cousin of the bride. Father Ekeler sang the Nuptial Mass while the St. Stephen's choir sang the Mass of the Sacred Heart. Rev. A. A. Antochowski of the Exeter parish, at the organ, played the wedding Mass and marches. Rev. Henry Scholtens of Friend was in the sanctuary.
The bride was attired in a white net dress made of satin fashioned with a sweetheart neckline and fitted bodice. The full skirt ended in a long train. She wore a finger tip veil, held in place by a white crown, and carried a bouquet of rose and gardenias. Her ornaments were a pearl necklace and ear rings, gifts of the groom.
Mrs. Clark chose as her attendant, Mr. Clark's sister-in-law, Mrs Lyle Clark of Lincoln, who wore an aqua dress fashioned with a sweetheart neckline, fitted bodice and floor length skirt. She wore a matching tiara and carried a bouquet of snap dragons and gardenias. Little Suzanne Barkmeier was the train bearer and wore a pink organdy floor length dress.
The bride groom was attended by his brother, Lyle Clark, of Lincoln. Both men wore brown suits with white carnation boutonnieres. Three altar boys, John and Wilfrid Ekeler and Melvin Barkmeier, were cousin of the bride. The others were Richard Krejci, a former pupil of the bride, and Larry and Gary Ruhl.
A three-course dinner was served at the home of the bride's parents to immediate family and near friends of the young couple, The table was beautifully decorated in pink and white and a three-tiered wedding cake, topped by a miniature bride and groom formed the center piece.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark left for a short trip after which they will make their home at 1105 North 33rd Street in Lincoln, where Mr. Clark is employed at the Agricultural College of the University of Nebraska. For her going away dress, Mrs. Clark chose an aqua crepe with white accessories.
Mrs. Clark is a graduate of the Exeter High School and for a number of years has taught school, the last three years in the Friend schools. Mr. Clark received his discharge in March after serving three and one-half years with the Army Air Corps, the last 18 months of his time with an atomic bomb squadron.
Out-of-town guests at the dinner were Mr. and Mrs. John Clark of McCool, Mrs. Susan Hubertes of York, Mr. and Mrs. John Clark of Lincoln, Mrs. John Campbell of Omaha, Mrs. John Cannon of Ong, Rev. Ekeler of Crete and Rev. Scholtens of Friend.
