Flanagan, Naomi (29 MAY 1954)


When Miss Naomi Flanagan, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), made plans for her wedding, she selected a waltz-length bridal gown, the all-French lace strapless frock topped with a jacket designed with mandarin collar and long sleeves.  Scallops edged the full skirt.  Her short silk illusion veil was attached to a tiara of pearls and brilliants, and a large white satin bow fastened the yellow roses surrounding the purple orchid she carried.


The bride, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Pedersen, Withee, became the bride of Howard Grant Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Johnson, Withee, during nuptial rites Saturday afternoon, the 29th of May at 2 o’clock in the Danish Assembly Hall, Withee, with the Rev. W. Clayton Nielsen officiating.


Yellow lace over net and satin empire style was worn by the maid of honor, Miss Betty Karaba, Owen.  She carried a bouquet of yellow roses and white carnations.  A tiny veil was attached to her headpiece, a crown of roses and tulle.


Duke Peissig, Withee, was the best man.


Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held at the hall, supper was served to immediate families at the home of the bride’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Picus, Owen, where the bride will reside until she can join her husband, who will leave July 15 for Alaska, where he is stationed with the U. S. Air Force.  He expects to be in services for another 1 ½ years.


The honeymoon will be spent in southern Wisconsin, Wis. Dells, and Madison.


Mr. and Mrs. Johnson are graduates of Withee and Owen High Schools.
