Moberg, Avis (Marriage - 29 June 1968)
Miss Avis Moberg and Arnold Becker were united in marriage in a ceremony performed by the Rev. Msgr. Norbert E. King in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal Saturday.
Parents of the bride are Mr. and Mrs. Elery Moberg of Rt. 3, Greenwood. Mr. Becker is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Becker of Rt. 1, Greenwood.
The bridal gown, designed by the bride, was of silk organza over taffeta, of A-line styling, trimmed with re-embroidered Alencon lace and accented with hand-sewn sequins and pearls. The lace-trimmed train swept from her shoulders, forming an overskirt. An elbow-length veil was secured by a forward crown of petals and lace with simulated pearls. She carried a cascade of red roses, white chrysanthemums and ivy.
Mrs. James (Lois) Becker, the bride’s twin sister, was her matron-of-honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Donald Halterman of Stanley and Mrs. Elgene Schmidtke of Stratford. They wore green floor-length gowns of linen, accented with bands of yellow and orange flowers and a long green bow, at the Demi-empire waistline. Bouffant veils wee held by matching bow headpieces. Each carried a bouquet of yellow carnations and orange spatice.
James Becker of Greenwood was his brother’s best man. Groomsmen were Jerome Becker of Greenwood and Elgene Schmidtke of Stratford. Ushers were Charles Klapatauskas of Withee and Donald Becker of Marshfield.
The bride is a 1964 graduate of Greenwood High School and is employed at Thorp Finance Corporation’s home office. Mr. Becker, a 1960 graduate of Loyal High School, is employed in Spencer.
On their return from a northern Wisconsin wedding trip on July 8, Mr. and Mrs. Becker will reside on Rt. 2, Greenwood.
