Olson, Dorothy M. (Marriage - 14 May 1955)

In the Assembly of God church, Miss Dorothy M. Olson and Duane W. Neuman exchanged marriage vows, Saturday afternoon, May 14. The Rev. Robert Spencer of Waupaca read the double ring service at 2:30 o’clock and nuptial music was provided by Mrs. Elmer Jensen and Mrs. Reuben Mantik, who sang a duet, "Each Step I Take." Mrs. Mantik also sang "O Promise Me," with Mrs. Earl Cleveland of Wausau as accompanist for both selections.

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Mae Kanneberg of Merrill and Alfred Kanneberg of Loyal and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Neuman of Unity, Wis.

For her wedding, the bride was attired in a pastel blue ballerina net over taffeta gown with a taffeta bolero. Tiers of ruffled net adorned the skirt, the net bodice was shirred and shirred taffeta encircled the midriff. A head piece of tiny gardenias held the matching shoulder length veil. She carried a bouquet of red roses and white gardenias.

Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Edwin C. Kanneberg of Rockford, Ill., brother and sister-in-law of the bride, and Miss LaVonne Neuman of Unity, sister of the groom, and Richard Witte, Jr., cousin of the groom, of Spencer, Wis.

The bride’s attendants wore ballerina length strapless net over taffeta dresses with matching bolero. Their matching head dresses were of ruffled net. Pink was the color chosen for the matron of honor and Nile green for the bridesmaids. They carried smaller bouquets like that of the bride.

The mothers of the bridal couple and Mrs. Elizabeth Roohr of Owen, Wis., grand mother of the groom, all chose navy blue ensembles with white accessories. Each had a gardenia corsage.

Ushers were Kenneth Kanneberg of Loyal, brother of the bride, and Hubert Witte of Colby, cousin of the groom.

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the church basement and in the evening, the couple greeted friends at the groom’s farm. About 200 guests were in attendance from Rockford, Ill., Dubuque, Ia., Merrill, Loyal, Unity, Milwaukee, Sussex, Spencer, Menomonie, Withee, Owen, Colby and Abbotsford, Wis.

Mr. and Mrs. Neuman left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin and Michigan. They will make their home on the groom’s farm at Unity, Wis.
