Swann, Catherine (Marriage - 11 June 1949)

Now honeymooning in Minnesota and Canada are Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Stanley, who were married Saturday, June 11, (1949) in a double ring ceremony at the Zion Reformed Church in Neillsville. The Rev. N. J. Dechant officiated. The church was decorated with lighted candles. Only the immediate families were present.

The bride, the former Catherine Swann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Swann of Milwaukee, was attired in a gown fashioned from white nylon, which came from Japan. She wore a floor length veil and carried a bridal bouquet of talisman roses.

The couple was attended by Mr. and Mrs. Donald Lipscy of St. Louis, MO., brother-in-law and sister of the bride. Mrs. Lipscy wore a floor length dress of powder blue and carried a colonial bouquet.

A dinner for the guests was served at the Merchant’s Hotel following the ceremony.

Mrs. Stanley is a graduate of the Neillsville High School with the class of 1948, and attended the Marquette University School of Nursing in Milwaukee for one year. The groom, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Leon Stanley, Neillsville, is a graduate of the Neillsville High School and attended the University of Wisconsin short-course.

The couple will make their home in the Town of Grant.

Out-of-town guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Donald Lipscy of St. Louis, Mo., Mr. and Mrs. Duane Stanley of Wonewoc, Ray Stanley of Madison and Dale Stanley of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
