Neperud, Marilyn Joyce (Marriage - 12 June 1948)
Miss Marilyn Joyce Neperud, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy M. Neperud of Neillsville, became the bride of Vernon Leroy Rood, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Rood of Bode, Iowa, in a candlelight ceremony at the United Lutheran Church at Greenwood, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. The Reverend Theodore Nelson was officiating clergyman.
The bride’s gown was of colonial style ivory satin, edged in lace, and featuring seed pearl trimming on the long train. She wore a fingertip veil and carried Joanna Hill roses centered by an orchid.
Her maid of honor was her college roommate, Miss Edoris Kinitzl of St. James, Minn., who wore blue taffeta and carried yellow roses. Miss Norma Jean Peterson of Walnut Grove, Minn., another roommate of the bride and Miss Helen Trewartha of Neillsville, were bridesmaids. They wore matching gowns of mauve and carried talisman roses. The flower girls were sisters of the bride, Carolyn Sue and Mary Ellen Neperud. They were gowned in blue and carried colonial bouquets.
David Bunnell of St. James, Minn., served as best man. Other attendants were Orville and Wilford Rood, brothers of the groom. Ushers included Richard Rood, another brother; Charles Larson of Bode, Iowa, an uncle; and George and Roy Neperud, brothers of the bride.
The bridal party attended a four o’clock dinner before the ceremony. After the wedding a reception was held at the church. The young couple planned a honeymoon through northern Minnesota, after which they will be at home in Northfield, Minn. Both bride and groom are students at St. Olaf College.
