Hanneman, Karen Ann (Marriage - 11June1972)

Miss Karen Ann Hanneman, speech clinician in the Neillsville and Granton school systems, exchanged wedding vows with William Alfred Gething on Sunday, June 11, at St. Peters Evangelical Lutheran Church, Weyauwega. The Rev. John D. Dahlke officiated at the ceremony united the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred A. Hanneman, Weyauwega and the son of Mrs. Marie Gething, Stevens Point.

The bride’s gown was fashioned with a venise lace Empire bodice, full, sheer sleeves and a bell skirt of softly-shirred organza with a band of scalloped lace encircling the double-flounced hem. It was further detailed by a detachable Watteau chapel train. Her cathedral-length veil of lace-edged imported English illusion was secured to a Camelot cap. She carried a bouquet of pint and red roses, snowdrift mums and daisy Pons as she was given in marriage by her father.

Miss Janice Leuenge4r was her cousin’s maid-of-honor. Bridesmaids were Sally Mae and Sandra Kay Hanneman, sister-in-law of the bride. The bride’s cousin, Vicki Thews, was the flower girl. The bridal attendants’ gowns were fashioned with pink organza bodices topping full skirts of multi-colored printed organza. They carried wicker parasols with daisy Pons, snowdrift mums, baby’s breath and straw flowers in shades of pink, blue and white.

Bestman was John Nicholas Baumhofer. David Kopperud, Dale Hanneman, Fredrick Jaworski and Thomas Peterson were the groomsmen. Peter Jakusz and Richard Bleier served as ushers.

Miss Connie Raschke was the soloist. She was accompanied by Walter Vater.

Cedar Springs resort, Manawa, was chosen for the reception and dance.

The newlyweds are both graduates of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Following a wedding trip to Lake Geneva, they will make their home in Marshfield.
