Voigt, June (Marriage - 18 June 1948)

Mr. and Mrs. L. Eugene Haines, who were married June 18, (1948), are setting up their home on a farm in the Town of Grant.

The wedding took place at the York Center Methodist Church. The bride was June Voigt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Voigt, and the groom was L. Eugene Haines, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Haines. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. L. Holmes.

The bride wore a gown of white faille, fashioned with a sweetheart neckline, long pointed sleeves and a long train. She had a fingertip veil edged with lace and carried a bouquet of red roses and mock orange blossoms. She was given in marriage by her father.

Miss Anola Tews of Spencer, a friend of the bride, was the maid of honor. She was attired in a gown of pink taffeta and a sweetheart bonnet and carried a bouquet of pink carnations and sweet peas. Miss Rebecca Haines, a sister of the groom, and Miss Betty Voigt, a niece of the bride, were bridesmaids. Their dresses and bonnets were of aqua and yellow, and they carried bouquets of yellow and blue carnations.

Harlyn Freeberg of Colfax, a friend and schoolmate of the groom, served as best man. Other attendants were Glenn Haines and Lyle Voigt, both brothers of the couple.

During the ceremony Miss Ruth Garbisch, accompanied by Mrs. Milfred Rowe, sang "Because" and "Always."

Wayne Voigt, a nephew of the bride, and Russell Gardner, Jr. a nephew of the groom, were the ushers.

Following the ceremony a 4 o’clock supper was served to about 30 guests at the York town hall. The hall was attractively decorated with baskets of peonies and mock orange blossoms, pink and white streamers and a huge white bell over the bride’s table.
