Fischer, LaVerne A. (14 JUL 1946)
St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church at Medford (Taylor Co., Wis.) was the scene of the nuptial ceremony at which Miss LaVerne Ann Fischer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Fischer, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), was claimed in marriage by Henry E. Harder, Seymour, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Harder, Medford. The Rev. L. K. Urlaub read the wedding vows at 2:30 p.m., July 14, 1946. Lois Forehand and Lila Brede sang "Jesus Still Leads On" and "The Lord’s Prayer." Mrs. Joe Boor was organist.
The bride approached the altar, which was decorated with summer flowers, on the arm of her father. She wore an entrained wedding gown of embroidered eyelet and net and a full length veil inserted with lace and caught to a beaded tiara. She carried red roses interspersed with swansonia and tied with satin bows. Her necklace and earrings were gifts from the groom.
Miss Geraldine Purdy, Medford, in a pink taffeta and net frock and matching blusher veil, was maid of honor. Miss Barbara Fischer, a sister of the bride, and Miss June Gaab, in identical dresses of pink and blue net over taffeta, were bridesmaids.
