Price, Grace (Marriage - 3 Sept. 1949)

The United Lutheran Church at Greenwood was the scene of the marriage on Saturday, Sept. 3, of Miss Grace Price, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Price of route one, Unity, and Raymond Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sigward Johnson of route one, Loyal. Officiating at the 3:30 p.m. double-ring ceremony was the Rev. Theodore Nelson.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white taffeta gown fashioned with a fitted bodice, full skirt, bustle back and lace yoke. Completing her outfit was mitts and a fingertip veil of illusion, edged in Chantilly lace and falling from a bonnet-type headdress. Her shower, bouquet was of white gladioli and red roses.

Mrs. Warren Thomas of Birchwood was her sister’s matron of honor. She wore a gown with a three-tiered white net skirt and a powder blue velvet bodice with a white net yoke. She carried a fan-shaped bouquet of yellow gladioli and pink carnations.

Miss Vera Johnson, cousin of the groom, and Mrs. Bernita Lueck, both of Greenwood, were bridesmaids, in identically styled gowns with ivory bodices and orchid and blue taffeta skirts, respectively.

Calvin Johnson was his brother’s best man. Also serving the groom were Warren Thomas of Birchwood and Vernard Swieso of Greenwood. Ushers were Ernest Price, brother of the bride, and Edward Johnson, brother of the groom.

Out-of-town guests at the wedding included: Mr. and Mrs. Chester Vine and Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Vine of Janesville, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Price of Milwaukee, Lloyd Fox of Osseo and Miss Janice Hong of Eau Claire.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the church, and in the evening a dance was held at the Merry Ol’ Gardens in Longwood.

The bride is a graduate of the Loyal high school (class of 1946) and the Eau Claire School of Beauty Culture. She was employed at the Modern beauty shop in Neillsville for two years. The groom graduated from the Loyal High School in 1939 and is employed at the Riplinger Dairy and on his father’s farm, where the couple will reside upon their return from a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin and Canada.

To the newlyweds, The Loyal Tribune extends its heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future.
