Witt, Joan Joyce (Marriage - 17 May 1952)  

Miss Joan Joyce Witt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Witt, Owen, and Jack Dale Leichtnam, son of Mrs. Cecelia Leichtnam, of Abbotsford, exchanged marriage vows Saturday afternoon, May 17, at the Lutheran parsonage at Dorchester, at 2:30 o’clock. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler was the officiating clergyman.  

A white nylon net accordion pleated skirt topped with a lace bodice and jacket was worn by the bride for her wedding. Her tiara head dress held her finger tip veil and she carried a bouquet of carnations and roses, centered with a lily.  

The maid of honor, Miss Donna Leichtnam, Abbotsford, a sister of the groom, was attired in a gown of nylon net over satin with a bolero and she carried an arrangement of yellow and blue carnations.  

A cousin of the bride, Miss Delores Hendrickson, Spencer, was bridesmaid. Her ballerina length gown was fashioned of blue net over satin. She also carried a bouquet of yellow and blue carnations.  

Bernard Kuenzi, Abbotsford, was best man, and Wilbur Buse, Loyal, was usher. 

For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Witt wore a crepe dress and the groom’s mother wore a navy blue dress. Each had a corsage of white and pink carnations.  

A wedding supper was served at 5:00 o’clock in the evening at the home of the bride and a wedding dance was held at the Colby Park pavilion. 

Guests from out of town at the wedding, were from Milwaukee, Owen, Stanley, and Spencer.
