Graham, Margaret (14 JAN 1950)

Miss Margaret Graham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Graham of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Donald Witt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry A. Witt of Stanley, Wis., in a ceremony performed by Rev. M. K. Zimmerman, at St. Paul’s Evangelical Church in the city on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 14th, 1950, at 2:00 o’clock.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white rayon marquisette over satin gown styled with square yoke trimmed with wide lace and long train. Her fingertip veil fell from a beaded crown and she carried a bouquet of red roses, carnations and lilies.

She was attended by Jean Anason, cousin of the groom, and Janice Witt, sister of the groom, as bridesmaids. Both wore identical gowns of aqua and lime green satin, fashioned with sweetheart necklines. They carried colonial bouquets of yellow and white mums. Mrs. Wallace Graham, sister-in-law of the bride, was dressed in white taffeta fashioned with bustle and carried a carnation bouquet.

The groom was attended by Gerald Witt, as best man, and Dean Boie, Norval Boie and Chas. Anderson were ushers.

Mrs. Graham, the bride’s mother, wore a brown crepe dress and Mrs. Witt was attired in a two-piece beige dress with brown accessories. Both wore carnation corsages.

A reception was held at the American Legion Hall following the wedding, and a dance was held in the evening.

The newlyweds will reside on the farm of the bridegroom’s parents near Stanley.
