Wedding Wednesday: Catherine STROESSER and John KORMAN

Page 16 of the 21 Sept 1939 issue of Omaha’s Evening World-Herald:
   Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stroesser announce the engagement of their daughter, Miss Catherine Stroesser, to John J. Korman of Omaha, son of Mrs. Veronica Korman of Philadelphia. No date has been set for the wedding.
This was the third daughter of Harry and Mary STROESSER, and my grandmother’s older sister. It would seem that Catherine (better known to us as “Kay”) and her fiance soon set a date, because they were married three months later.

Page 10 of the 11 Dec 1939 issue of the Evening World-Herald:
Rites Performed
   Rites performed November 6 at St. Cecilia’s cathedral by Msgr. E. J. Hunkeler united in marriage Miss Catherine Stroesser, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stroesser of Omaha and John Korman, son of Mrs. Veronica Korman of Philadelphia.
   The bride’s attendant was her sister, Miss Clara Stroesser, and best man was David Keegan. A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents the afternoon of the wedding. The couple, who are now living in Omaha, will leave shortly to make their home in Philadelphia.
A number of the STROESSER children were married at St. Cecilia’s cathedral, including my grandparents. The happy couple did indeed move to Philadelphia, and lived the rest of their lives in that area.
