Krueger, Geraldine (Marriage - 29 May 1954)  

Miss Geraldine Krueger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Krueger, Route 1, Curtiss, and Milford Leffel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Leffel, Colby, exchanged marriage vows in a double ring ceremony, Saturday, May 29. at the Evangelical Lutheran church, at Curtiss. The Rev. M. F. Egge read the service at 2:00 o’clock. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a waltz length gown of white nylon over satin. Lace was used in inserts in the skirt and the bolero of the strapless bodice, and her long, white mitts. The finger-tip veil fell from a pearl crown. She wore a gold cross and chain, a gift from her god parents, and carried a bouquet of white carnations and red roses with a shower of white streamers and rose buds.  

Attending the bride was her sister, Miss Arlene Krueger, of Milwaukee, as maid of honor. Another sister, Miss Patricia Krueger, Curtiss, and a sister of the groom, Miss Bernadine Leffel, of Michigan, were bridesmaids. They all wore identical light blue frocks of nylon lace over taffeta with boleros and matching head dresses. The maid of honor carried a bouquet of pink and white carnations while the bridesmaids’ were of yellow, pink, and white carnations.  

Miss Pamela Krueger, three year old sister of the bride, was flower girl. Her dress was also waltz length and white nylon lace over satin. Pink rose buds and white carnations were used for her head piece and for the nosegay bouquet she carried.  

Keith Weller, of Abbotsford, nephew of the bride, carried the rings on a satin pillow.  

Leo Leffel, of Colby, was his brother’s best man, and Frederick Krueger, Curtiss, and Melvin Leffel, of Colby, brothers of the bridal couple, were ushers.  

Both mothers wore navy blue ensembles accented by a corsage of red roses and white carnations.  

Dinner was served in the church hall to 200 guests and a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. In the evening a wedding dance was held at Memorial hall, Dorchester.  

Guests at the wedding were from Rice Lake, Baraboo, Marshfield, Milwaukee, Abbotsford, Colby, Dorchester, Minnesota and Michigan.  

Mr. and Mrs. Leffel are at home on a farm near Edgar.
