Schlinsog, Betty Kay (Marriage - 9 November 1968)

Nuptial vows were exchanged in a double ring ceremony Saturday that united in marriage Miss Betty Kay Schlinsog of Rt. 2 Granton, and Robert Charles Scheel of Rt. 1 Neillsville. The Rev. Roland Roehrs performed the 2:30 p.m. ceremony in Zion Lutheran Church in Granton. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Robert H. Schlinsog of Rt. 2 Granton and Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Scheel, Jr., of Rt. 1 Neillsville.

Mr. Schlinsog gave his daughter in marriage. For her wedding the bride wore a floor-length gown of Chantilly lace over taffeta. The neckline of the fitted bodice featured a scalloped Sabrina neckline. The full skirt was enhanced by a wide, ruffled chapel train attached at the shoulders. A bouffant illusion veil was secured to a crown of pearls, accented with aurora borealis crystal. She carried a bouquet of white gladioli.

Mrs. Larry Scheel of West Allis was her matron-of-honor. Bridesmaid was Miss Linda Hiles of Rt. 2 Granton. They wore aqua floor-length Empire coat style formals with lace bodices and slim skirts of chiffon overskirts and enhanced taffeta underskirts. Each carried blue and white chrysanthemums with white gladioli, tied with aqua ribbon.

Larry Scheel of West Allis brother of the groom was bestman. Kip Robert Schlinsog, brother of the bride, was the groomsman. Ushers were James Scheel of Neillsville and Andrew Novackoic, cousin of the bride, of Milwaukee.

Master Steve Ratsch of Rt. 2 Granton was the ringbearer. Ellen Lau, of Potter was the flowergirl.

Nuptial music was played by Mrs. Leland Garbisch, with Mrs. Roger Helm singing “O Perfect Love” and “The Wedding Prayer.”
