In a ceremony performed in the parsonage of the Evangelical and Reformed church at Colby, with the Rev. Robert G. Leonhardt officiating, last Wednesday afternoon, Miss Dorraine E. Williams, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Williams, became the bride of Pfc. Eugene J. Allar, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Allar. Both families are residents of the town of Brighton.

With her tailored dress of powder-blue gabardine, the bride wore a matching hat and accessories of brown, Miss Geraldine Kiehl, Auburndale, her only attendant, wore a peach-colored street-length frock, with brown hat and accessories. Both had shoulder bouquets of roses.

Pvt. Leslie Williams, brother of the bride, served the bridegroom.

At the home of the bride’s parents, where 50 guests were entertained at an informal reception and wedding dinner, decorations were carried out in blue, peach and white. In the evening, the event was celebrated with a shower and wedding dance in Cherokee hall.

Both young people attended the Unity, Wis. High school. The bride, who graduated with the class of 1945, is employed at the McLellan store in Marshfield and will continue her duties there. The bridegroom entered the army March 23, 1944, and received his training in Arkansas. He left for overseas in September, 1944, and was wounded in action a few weeks later. On December 20, 1945, he returned to the United States. He has re-enlisted in the army and at the termination of a 90-day furlough will report March 20 at Ft. Sheridan, Ill.

The couple is now residing with the bride’s parents.
