Knoll, Lorraine E. (19 JUN 1939)

Miss Lorraine E. Knoll of Milwaukee, a nice of Mr. and Mrs. John Philibeck of the Elmwood farm in Menomonie Township, and Elmer A. Swanson of Milwaukee, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Swanson of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), were married Monday at 2:30 p.m. in the rectory of Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Marinette, by Rev. Father Roland Ahearn.

Miss Helen Kowalski and Earl Belisle of Milwaukee were the attendants.

Miss Knoll’s bridal gown was a dainty creation of white lace and tulle wore over satin and a veil of white illusion fell to the tips of her fingers from a pearl embroidered headdress. Joanna Hill roses, white larkspur and swansonia were used in her colonial bouquet.

Miss Kowalski was attired in blue organdy over satin and wore a headdress of matching blue organdy and tulle. At her shoulder she wore a spray of Briarcliff rosebuds and white larkspur.

The wedding dinner was served to 30 guests at 5 p.m. in the Philibeck farm home. Streamers of blue and white crepe paper decorated the rooms and the table which was centered with a large wedding cake. Peonies, daisies and other seasonal flowers were effectively arranged in the rooms.

Eighty-five guests attended the reception in the evening and danced to the music of a four-piece orchestra.

When the couple left on Tuesday morning for a wedding trip to the bridegroom’s home in Withee, Wis., St. Paul, Minneapolis, Rock Island, Ill. and Davenport, Iowa, Mrs. Swanson was wearing a black and white ensemble and white accessories.

Wedding guests from out of the city included Mr. and Mrs. Peter Swanson of Withee, Wis., Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Mathewson and their daughter, Carol Ann, of Owen, Mr. and Mrs. J. Christianson of Davenport, Iowa, Miss Lucille Nowack, Miss Helen Kowalski, Earl Belisle and Amos Olson of Milwaukee, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Filibeck and family and Mr. and Mrs. Al Baker of Banat.
