Goetsch, Adeline Ethel (Marriage - 18 July 1945)

Miss Adeline Ethel Goetsch, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. M. C. Goetsch of Colby, and the Rev. Lloyd Lambert, son of Mrs. Emma Lambert of Spencer, were married in a candlelight service Wednesday evening at 7:30 o’clock at St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran church in the town of Colby, Wis. The bride’s father performed the ceremony before an altar decorated with seven branch candelabra and baskets of garden flowers.

Miss Mildred Thompson, of Curtiss, organist, who played the wedding marches and appropriate selections before the service, also accompanied Norman Erickson of Owen, who sang "Be Thou Our Guide" and "The Lord’s Prayer."

The bride, given in marriage by her cousin, Arthur Mueller of Wausau, wore a gown of ivory faille taffeta fashioned with fitted bodice, long sleeves ending in ruffles at the wrist, and a full gathered skirt extending into a graceful train. She wore a gold chain and cross, a gift of the groom. The sweetheart neckline of her dress was edged with seed pearls and her three-quarter length veil of illusion was gathered to a Juliet cap of seed pearls and ivory lace styled in a heart design. She carried Johanna Hill roses.

Miss Lyola Lambert of Racine, sister of the groom, as maid of honor, and Miss Myrtle Hoff of Curtiss, and Miss Lorraine Schulz, Elkhorn, as bridesmaids, wore gowns similar in style to the bride’s. Miss Lambert’s gown was of blue marquisette and the bridesmaids wore yellow. All attendants wore gold cross necklaces and carried colonial bouquets of yellow roses, feverfew and blue larkspur. Little Ann Mueller of Wausau was her cousin’s flower girl, and wore an ivory crepe dress made with a sweetheart neckline edged with perky ruffles, a fitted bodice and full fashioned skirt. Her cap was of net and sequins and she carried a miniature bouquet of Johanna Hill roses.

The groom was attended by Staff Sgt. Harold W. Goetsch, brother of the bride, and the Rev. Emil Toepel of Cataract and Sgt. Victor Poulson of Pyote, Texas, were ushers.

The bride’s mother wore a white and fuchsia print jersey frock with a fuchsia hat and white accessories while the groom’s mother chose a rose crepe dress with white accessories. Both had shoulder corsages of Johanna Hill roses.

Covers for 30 were laid for the 5:30 o’clock dinner served in the church parlors, decorated with blue, yellow and white streamers. At the reception which followed, 160 guests were present.

The bride, a graduate of the Colby, Wis. High School and the Central State Teachers College at Stevens Point, has taught English and Latin in the high schools at Dorchester, Owen and Elkhorn for the past seven years. The groom, a graduate of Northwestern College at Watertown and the Lutheran Seminary at Thiensville, Wis., is now pastor of the Salem Evangelical Lutheran church at Veefkind. Following a wedding trip to northern and eastern Wisconsin, the couple will make their home at Veefkind.
