Morrison, Lois Jean (Marriage - 28 July 1956)

Miss Lois Jean Morrison, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lester Morrison of Spencer, and Stanley Dale Voelker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Voelker of Colby, exchanged marriage vows during a nuptial ceremony in the First Evangelical and Reformed church in Colby Saturday afternoon, Rev. V. O. Grosshuesch reading the marriage ceremony.

The bride chose a white floor-length gown of nylon net over satin for her wedding. The long sleeves of her Alencon lace bodice tapered to points over the wrists. Pearls and sequins covered her crown to which was attached French illusion veiling. She carried a purple orchid surrounded by white mums in a cascade arrangement.

Preceding Miss Morrison and her father to the altar were Mrs. Leo Stecker, the matron of honor, and Miss Kathy Morrison and Mrs. Lee Kenyon. The honor attendant, a sister of the groom from Colby, wore a yellow strapless outfit, while the two bridesmaids, a sister of the bride, Spencer, and an aunt from route 1, Loyal, chose pink and aqua respectively. Their net over taffeta dresses were in floor-length and had cover-up jackets of nylon net designed with Peter Pan collars. Nylon net braid formed their headpieces. The carnations in their colonial bouquets were tinted to match their dresses.

Leo Stecker, the best man, escorted his wife, and Wayne and Donald Wienke of Glenwood City, cousins of the bride, were groomsmen.

Mrs. Morrison wore a navy blue dress and the groom’s mother wore a turquoise costume. Their frocks were complemented with white accessories and corsages of red and white carnations.

During the reception a close friend, Mom Clodefeleter of Pasadena, Calif., furnished the music. The bridal cake, cut during the reception at the Cherokee Park Pavilion, was baked by the groom’s aunt, Mrs. Harold Van Gorden.

The groom received his secondary education at Colby High School, and the bride attended Spencer High School. He is employed at the Pathfinder Mobile Homes at Spencer.

The guests, including persons from Glenwood City, Milwaukee, Chippewa Falls, Neenah, Sparta, Wausau, Medford, Spencer, California, Alma Center, Unity, Marshfield, Abbotsford, Black River Falls, Madison and Stratford, were seated by Lee Kenyon, route 1, Loyal, the bride’s uncle, and Richard Wienke, Glenwood City, her cousin.
