Hium, Jo Ann C. (Marriage - 29 August 1970)

Miss Jo Ann C. Hium of Eau Claire, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Hium of Rt. 3, Greenwood, was united in marriage to Jerome B. Hoffman, son of Mr and Mrs. Barney Hoffman of Crandon, on August 29, at 3 p.m. in ceremonies at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Greenwood. The Rev. David E. Wenger performed the double-ring ceremony in the presence of 200 guests.

The bride wore a lace-trimmed, sleeveless sheer dress over a blue satin slip. The veil was long and formed the train, and was trimmed in the same lace as the dress. She carried a bouquet of white gladioli and blue-tinted carnations as she was escorted to the altar by her father.

Miss Peggy Hium of Greenwood was maid-of-honor, and Miss Joan Hoffman of Crandon, Miss Darla Hium of Greenwood, and Mrs. Nancy Kodl of Eau Claire was bridesmaids. They wore floor-length blue print dresses, with short angel sleeves, and wore white crocheted hats with streamers matching their dresses. They carried butterfly-shaped bouquets with a white gladioli placed in the center.

David Hoffman of Crandon was bestman. Larry Bauknecht of Three Lakes, Larry Hartleben of Wittenberg and Ray Kodl of Eau Claire were groomsmen. Ushers were Wayne Turnquist of Greenwood and Ed Quade of Crandon.

A duet, “They’ll know we are Christians” and “On Our Way Rejoicing,” was sung by Rev. and Mrs. Arvid Myhrwold, accompanied by Mrs. Lil Warner.

A reception was held at the Legion Hall in Greenwood, with 200 guests attending.

The bride graduated in May from Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire, and the groom attended the technical institute in Eau Claire.
