Luther, Jeanette #2 (11 OCT 1944)

The Trinity Lutheran church was the scene of a pretty fall wedding on Wednesday. Oct. 11, when Miss Jeanette Luther, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Luther, became the bride of Raymond Miller, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Miller of Unity, Wis. The Rev. August Quandt of Coloma, brother-in-law of the bride, officiated at the 2:30 p.m. service, read before the flower-banked altar. "Because" and "O Promise Me" were sung by Lorayne Miller and Lucille Schultz.

Attendants were Miss Isabelle Miller, a sister of the groom, maid of honor; Lorain Luther of Wausau, a cousin of the bride, best man; Miss Genevieve Leffel of Marshfield, bridesmaid, and Laverne Luther of Marshfield, cousin of the bride, groomsman.

For the occasion the bride wore a white chiffon gown made with full-length bishop sleeves and a long skirt ending in a train. Her fingertip veil, edged with lace was caught to a seed pearl crown, and she carried white gladioli and roses and a prayer book. For jewelry she wore a gold locket, a gift of the groom.

Miss Miller and Miss Leffel wore white net frocks and matching blusher veils caught to their curls with white flowers. Both carried gladioli and wore pearls, gifts of the bride.

A 5 o’clock supper was served to relatives and friends at the Luther home, where the ceiling was festooned with white streamers centered with a wedding bell, and a large wedding cake centered the table. Fifty guests attended the reception held at the home of the bride’s parents. And later a wedding dance was given at the Eagles hall in Marshfield.

The couple is now at home to friends on their farm on route two, Loyal, after spending a week honeymooning in southern Wisconsin. Mr. Miller is a graduate of the Colby high school, and his bride graduated from Spencer high school.

Guests at the wedding were the Rev. and Mrs. August Quandt and family of Coloma, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gropp and family, Mrs. Enos Cornwall and Mr. and Mrs. Merlyn Lindner of Spencer, Mr. and Mrs. Maynard Pingle and family of Seymour, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Johnson and family, Miss Isabelle Miller, Laverne Luther, Miss Genevieve Leffel and Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Montgomery of Marshfield, Mr. and Mrs. Harlan Gorman and family of Milwaukee, Lorain Luther of Wausau, Miss Lucille Schultz and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Miller and daughter, Loraine, of Unity, Mrs. J. C. Langholz and daughter, Eunice, and Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Lindekugel and family of Loyal, and Mrs. Minnie Manthe of Marion.

The Loyal Tribune extends to the young couple its wishes for happiness.
