Scheer, Joanne Marie (Marriage - 29 May 1954)

Milwaukee will be the home of the Kenneth Lee Kaspers, who were married Saturday afternoon, May 29 at 1:30 o’clock at St. John’s Lutheran Church by the Rev. R. Scholz.

Mrs. Kasper, who was given in marriage by her father, is the former Miss Joanne Marie Scheer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Orland Scheer, Spencer.

Her husband’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Harold Kasper, Unity. During the ceremony, Miss Joan Dehn, Menominee, sang "O Perfect Love," and "The Lord’s Prayer." Miss Marlene Toltzman was the organist.

The waltz-length bridal gown of nylon net with lace insets over satin, had a strapless bodice with a heart shaped shower bouquet of red roses and white carnations. Her lace-trimmed veil was caught to a tiara of sequins & pearls.

Miss Annette Shelley, the maid of honor, donned an orchid waltz-length frock, the ruffled skirt topped with a lace bodice and jacket. White and tinted carnations formed her colonial bouquet.

Dressed like the maid of honor were the two bridesmaids, Miss Janice Seefeldt, Riplinger, a cousin of the bride, in yellow, and Miss Myrna Laabs, Ashland, a cousin of the groom, in mint green.

Jerome Casper, Unity, was his brother’s best man. Wayne Scheer, a brother of the bride, and a cousin of the groom, Gerald Klessig, Colby, were groomsmen, and ushers were Harold Stange, Loyal, and Raymond Miller, Colby, cousins of the bride and groom respectively.

Attired in a miniature replica of the bride, was her little sister, Sheryl Ann Scheer, who was flower girl. David Zimmerman, Loyal, a cousin of the bride, served as ring bearer.

The mothers of the bride and groom wore gowns of rose and blue, respectively, and each had a corsage of pink and white carnations.

A supper was served in the church basement for 175 and the reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents.

Mr. Kasper, who graduated from Colby high school and also attended the Milwaukee School of Engineering, is employed as a draftsman for the American Paper and Lace Co. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His bride attended Spencer high school and has been employed by the Cheesemakers Mfg. Co.

Guests attended from Milwaukee, Loyal, Dorchester, Ashland, Riplinger, Unity, Colby, New London, Collins, New Holstein, Marshfield and Chicago.

The Register joins their local friends in extending congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy wedded life.
