Lieders, Maurine Jean (Marriage - 13 June 1953) 

In a candle light ceremony, Miss Maurene Jean Lieders and Milton Robert Schraufnagel exchanged marriage vows, Saturday evening, at 8:00 o’clock, at the First Presbyterian church in Abbotsford. The Rev. Richard Harrison read the double ring service. The Rev. William Knobloch sang "Because," and "The Lord’s Prayer." Mrs. J. F. Samson was his accompanist. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white ballerina length nylon tulle over satin gown, featuring lace panels and a lace bodice. A pearl beaded head piece held her finger tip tulle veil. She carried a bouquet of gladioli with satin streamers and stephanotis. 

Attending the bride as maid of honor was her sister, Dolores, of St. Paul, and a sister-in-law, Mrs. Eldred Schraufnagel, as bridesmaid. Their gowns were designed alike of nylon tulle over satin with lace bodices. Mint green was worn by Miss Lieders and yellow by Mrs. Schraufnagel. Both wore head pieces of pink rosebuds and stephanotis and carried bouquets of pink roses and white carnations. 

Attending the groom were his nephew, Jack Alexander, as best man, and his brother, Eldred Schraufnagel. Orville Lieders, Jr., brother of the bride, was usher. 

The mother of the bride wore a tan summer suit with white trim and a corsage of yellow roses and carnations. The mother of the groom wore a dark blue dress with white trim and a corsage of pink roses and carnations. Mrs. William Fahrenbach, grand mother of the bride, of Curtiss, wore a yellow print dress with black velvet trim and had a corsage of red rose buds and carnations. 

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Orville Lieders, of Abbotsford, and the groom is the son of Mrs. Alice Schraufnagel.  

Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held in the church parlors. Guests from out of town were from Chicago, St. Paul, Mound, Minn.; Curtiss, Dorchester, Medford, Wausau, and Colby. 

After a honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin and Canada, Mr. and Mrs. Schraufnagel will make their home in Minneapolis where the bride is employed by the Montgomery Ward Company and the groom is a landscape gardener.
