Keiner, Freda C. (15 SEP 1940)

Given in marriage by her father, Christ Keiner of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), Miss Freda Clara Keiner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Christ Keiner, became the bride of Hugh Floyd Severson, son of Mrs. May Severson of Greenwood, at a 12:30 wedding on Sunday at Zion Reformed Church. The Rev. E.G. Pfeiffer performed the ceremony.

The bride was attired in a soldier blue crepe street-length dress with loose three-quarter length sleeves, a wide gold metal belt, and gold metal bows on the shoulders. She wore a gold brooch that her maternal great-grandmother had worn on her wedding day almost a century before, and a shoulder corsage of mixed flowers. Her hat and veil were of the same color as her dress.

Mrs. James Plank, matron of honor, chose a wine crepe dress with three-quarter length sleeves and black accessories. Her corsage was similar to that worn by the bride. James Plank attended Mr. Severson as best man.

Mrs. Adolph Meyer played the marches for the ceremony and accompanied Miss Elaine Belter in her rendition of "I Love Your Truly."

The bride’s mother attended the services in a navy blue dress with rust colored accessories and a shoulder corsage of bronze chrysanthemums. Mrs. Severson, mother of the groom, wore a navy blue dress with black accessories and a pink chrysanthemum corsage.

Following the ceremony, a 1:30 luncheon was served to 130 guests in the church dining room. A buffet lunch was also served later in the day at the home of the bride’s parents. Both the church and the residence were beautifully decorated with fall flowers arranged in both bouquets and baskets. A large four-tiered wedding cake, iced and decorated in white, with a bride and groom and a bell topping it, centered the bridal table.

The bride and groom left Greenwood Sunday night. The former selected an oxford grey suit and black accessories for her traveling apparel. They will reside in Canton, Minn., where Mr. Severson is a lineman for the I. and E. Con…(my copy was cut off here)…., and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Theisen, Wausau; Mr. and Mrs. Carl Lins and son, Clarence, Marathon; Mrs. Edith Leberg and sons, Leonard and Bruce, and daughter, Dolores, and Mrs. Martha Corbin and son, Lawrence and Charles, and daughter, Marlene, Pittsville.

Mr. and Mrs. Herman Lieske, Miss Edna Lieske, and Arthur Lieske, Loyal; Mr. and Mrs. Lester Schuette, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Molle, and Mrs. J.E. Fuller and son, Rodney, Unity.
