Knoll, Dorene H. (Marriage - 14 Jan. 1956)

When Mr. and Mrs. Donald R. Newman, who were married Saturday afternoon, January 14, return from a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin, they will live in the Town of Unity where the former assists in the operation of his parent’s farm. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Newman while his bride, the former Dorene H. Knoll, is a daughter of the Clarence Knoll’s, Colby, Wis.

During the ceremony, at which the Rev. Paul Mall officiated, two vocal solos - "The Lord’s Prayer’ and "Because" were sung by Miss Betty Rex with Miss Elaine Gosse as the organist.

When the bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, she was wearing a waltz-length gown featuring a full net skirt topped by a lace bodice. Two matching lace panels detailed the bouffant skirt. Lace also trimmed the crown that secured her finger-tip veil. She carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations tied with white satin ribbons.

Attendants for the couple were Miss Evelyn Christensen, Marshfield, and her fiancé, LaVern Knoll, Colby, a brother of the bride. The former donned a mint green waltz-length net frock complimented with a headpiece of pink and white carnations. The same kind of flowers composed her bouquet.

Completing the wedding party were the ushers, Russell Lynn, Unity, and LaVern Knoll.

Corsages containing pink and white carnations accented the ensembles selected by the mothers of the newlyweds, Mrs. Knoll being present in a navy blue dress and Mrs. Newman in a brown dress.

Before leaving on their honeymoon, the newlyweds were feted at a dinner and reception at the home of the bride’s parents. Mr. Newman is a graduate of Unity High School and his bride attended Colby High School.

Coming from out of town for the wedding were guests from Union Grove, Ashland, Gurnee, Abbotsford, Unity, Riplinger, Loyal, Spencer, Marshfield.
