Schultz, Eunice (Marriage - 24 Sept. 1955)

Now residing in their new home on Main Street in Spencer are Mr. and Mrs. Elroy Luepke, who were married Saturday, September 24, in St. John’s Lutheran Church, route 1. The Rev. A. W. Saremba officiated at the double-ring ceremony at 2 p.m.

The bride, who has been employed in the pediatrics department at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert H. Schultz of route 1, Spencer. Mr. Luepke’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. William Luepke, Spencer.

At the organ was Mrs. A. W. Saremba, who accompanied the vocal selections, "The Voice That Breathed O’er Eden" and "The Lord is My Shepherd" which were sung by Mrs. Carol Schultz and Arthur Foth, both of Wisconsin Rapids, and respectively, the sister-in-law of the bride and cousin of the groom.

The bride selected a floor-length gown of nylon tulle over taffeta for her wedding. Cascades of nylon tulle ruffles extended from the waist to the bottom of the full bouffant skirt, and a low neckline and short sleeves finished off the fitted bodice. She carried a bouquet of white carnations and yellow roses. Seed pearls, which were combined with rhinestones to trim the bodice were repeated with bugle beads in her tiara, which held a finger-tip of illusion net.

Wearing a shrimp color full length gown, Miss Laura Weise of Almena, served as maid of honor. The bridesmaids, Mrs. Hugo Mielke of route 1, Colby and Miss Marjorie Luepke of Spencer, were dressed in blue gowns styled like that of the maid of honor. Jackets of Alencon-type lace covered the strapless bodices, and lace and nylon net ruffles encircled the skirts in front, extending down the back. Their head pieces matched their gowns, and they carried yellow, bronze and white daisies.

Mrs. Mielke is a sister of the bride. Miss Luepke is a niece of the bridegroom.

Attending Mr. Luepke as best man was Lawrence Below of Spencer. Hugo Mielke, of Colby and Robert Andre, Spencer, served as groomsmen. Ushers were Leonard Luepke, Spencer, brother of the groom, and Ernest Krause, also of Spencer, the bride’s brother-in-law.

A miniature copy of the bridal gown was worn by the bride’s niece, Nancy Krause of Spencer, Wisconsin, whose flower girl bouquet also repeated that of the bride.

A reception at the bride’s home followed the wedding, and a 5 o’clock supper was served in the church parlors.

The bridegroom, who is employed as a bookkeeper at the Farmer’s Cooperative Co., Spencer, is a graduate of Spencer High School, while his bride is a graduate of Unity High School. Her professional training was taken at the Luther Hospital School of Nursing at Eau Claire.

Guests at the wedding came from Marshfield, Spencer and Unity, Wisconsin Rapids, Edgar, Colby, Tomahawk, Milwaukee, Pittsville, Granton, Reedsville, Eau Claire, Almena, Hillsdale and Mondovi.

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