Miss Rita Marie Martens, daughter of Joseph Sanders, and Everett Mossing, son of Mrs. Claudia Mossing, were united in marriage at Zion Lutheran church Saturday afternoon, June 28, Rev. O. Hoffmann reading the marriage ceremony. The bride was attended by her two sisters, Miss Donna Rae Martens as maid of honor and Miss JoAnn Martens as bridesmaid. The groom was attended by his brother, Howard, of Milwaukee as best man and William Marquardt as groomsman. Mr. Juneau of Abbotsford was organist and Ed Haritz of Junction City, sang "Oh Promise Me" and "The Lord’s Prayer." Miss Donna Rae Martens sang "Because."

The bride was attired in an ankle length gown of white nylon net over white taffeta, pinched in bodice, full skirt and long sleeves, rhinestone trim and headpiece. Her finger tip veil was held in place by a lace bonnet. Her bouquet consisted of gardenias and white carnations on a white prayer book. Her attendants wore identical gowns of ice blue nylon net over ice blue taffeta, ballerina length, with rhinestone trim. Their cascade bouquets consisted of blue asters, red daisies and white camellias.

Following the ceremony, a dinner and reception was given in the church parlors, and, in the evening, a dance was held at the Colby park.
