Wedding Wednesday: Edward STROESSER and Jean CUDA

Page 74 of the 3 Oct 1954 issue of Omahas Sunday World-Herald:
Miss Cuda Weds E. H. Stroesser
   St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Bee, Neb., was the setting Saturday for the wedding of Miss Jean Cuda and Edward H. Stroesser, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry E. Stroesser. The Rev. Michael Pazourek officiated at 10 a. m.
   The bride, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Divis of Bee, wore a satin gown styled with fitted basque bodice and tulle shoulder yoke with pearl trim. The skirt ended in a cathedral-length train.
   A lace cap trimmed with seed pearls held the bride’s fingertip illusion veil and she carried an orchid and stephanotis.
   Mrs. William Rowe, matron of honor for her sister, wore a gown of aqua-marine satin and net. Bridesmaids, the Misses Melvene Horacek and Joan Stroesser, the latter a sister of the bridegroom, wore rose gowns. Attendants wore matching hats and carried chrysanthemums.
   Daniel Stroesser was his brother’s best man. Ushers were the bride’s brother, Sgt. Richard Divis, Hamilton Air Force Base, Cal., and Miles Semrad, Fremont, Neb.
   After a church reception the couple left on a wedding trip to Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Stroesser will live in Omaha.
The groom, Edward Henry Stroesser, was my grandmother's older brother. They were both children of Harry and Mary Stroesser of Omaha, Nebraska. Ed, as my grandmother, Rose, called her brother, was the seventh Stroesser child to be married.
