Wedding Wednesday: Dan STROESSER and Alice McGARRY

I had kind of lost track of the series of Wedding Wednesdays I had been pursuing, namely, the marriages of the STROESSER family of Omaha, Nebraska. Yet there are only two remaining: this one and the rather out-of-turn one that I will post next week.

Page 18 of the 23 Aug 1955 edition of Omaha’s Evening World-Herald:
Miss McGarry to Wed Omahan
   Mr. and Mrs. Leo McGarry, De Witt, Ia., have announced the approaching marriage of their daughter, Miss Alice, and Daniel George Stroesser, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stroesser.
   The couple will be married October 1 at St. Patrick’s Church in Villa Nova, Ia.
Daniel George STROESSER, better known as Dan STROESSER, was a younger brother of my grandma, Rose Edith STROESSER.

Page 70 of the 2 Oct 1955 edition of Omaha’s Sunday World-Herald:
Iowa Girl Weds D. G. Stroesser
   St. Patrick’s Church of Villa Nova near De Witt, Ia., was the scene of the 9 a. m. Saturday wedding of Miss Alice McGarry and Daniel G. Stroesser.
   The Rev. James P. Quinlan officiated and a reception and breakfast were held at the American Legion Hall in De Witt.
   The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo McGarry of De Witt and the bridegroom’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stroesser.
   Mrs. Winston Green, De Witt, was matron of honor for her sister. Joseph Stroesser was best man for his brother. Ushers were Daniel Begley and Leon McGarry, brother of the bride from De Witt.
