Neuman, Bette Jane (Marriage - 26 July 1944)

Clifford Anton, long a valued member of the organization of The Clark County Press and now a corporal in the United States Army, took as his bride on Wednesday, July 26, Bette Jane Neuman of Loyal, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Neuman. The wedding took place at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Loyal at 8 a.m. The sing ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Fr. Zi?thefer, the pastor.

The bride wore a white taffeta dress, trimmed with imported lace. Her flowers were a prayer book corsage of gardenia steamers. The maid of honor was Miss Frances Gebhardt of Milwaukee, a friend of the bride, who wore a gown of yellow marquisette and whose flowers were a colonial bouquet. The bridesmaids were Mrs. K. J. Neuman of Milwaukee and Miss Helen Murray of Loyal, who wore pink and aqua marquisette and carried colonial bouquets.

The best man was Frank Svetlik of Neillsville. Ushers were Ramon Neuman of Loyal and LaVair Neuman of Milwaukee, brothers of the bride.

A wedding reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents.

The bride is a graduate of Loyal High School and for the past two years has been employed by the Wisconsin Motor Corp. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Clifford Anton is a graduate of the high school of Drake, North Dakota, and was with The Press until his induction into the army. He was among the early selectees, and is a veteran of the service, having spent about two years in the Caribbean area. He is now stationed in Texas, and is under the necessity of an almost immediate return, having only a few days for the honeymoon.
