Klinkhammer, Jean Elizabeth (Marriage - 3 July 1954) 

Miss Jean Elizabeth Klinkhammer and John David Lindberg exchanged marriage vows Saturday morning, July 3, in St. Bernard’s Catholic church. The double ring ceremony was repeated at 9:00 o’clock before the nuptial high mass, with the Rev. Raymond Schulz officiating. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Klinkhammer and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Lindberg, all of Abbotsford. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of white satin with lace panels in the skirt and lace trim and sequins on the bodice, designed with three-quarter length sleeves. A crown of sequins and pearls held her three-quarter length veil, which was lace edged. She carried a bouquet of red carnations, white roses and stephanotis. 

Miss Emily Klinkhammer served her sister as maid of honor and Mrs. Wayne Klinkhammer, a sister-in-law, of Owatonna, Minn.; was bridesmaid. Their waltz length frocks were made alike of net over taffeta, with a lace bolero. In their hair they wore an arrangement of white baby mums and matching tulle in yellow and orchid, respectively. 

Attending the groom, as best man, was Thomas Vetter, a friend, and Wayne Klinkhammer, brother of the bride, as groomsman. 

Ushers were Peter Gierl, a step-brother of the bride, and Keith Zimmerman, a brother-in-law of the bride, of Colby. 

The bride’s mother was attired in a cocoa colored lace dress with blue velvet hat and tan accessories, and the groom’s mother chose an aqua nylon dress with white accessories. Both mothers had corsages of white carnations and yellow roses. 

Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride’s parents, and a reception, attended by 150 relatives and friends, was held at the armory. Miss Pat Gierl was in charge of the guest book at the reception. 

Mr. and Mrs. Lindberg left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin. They will greet their friends at a wedding dance at the Colby Park Pavilion on July 10. 

The groom, a graduate of the Abbotsford High School, is employed at Felker’s Service Station. His bride is a graduate of the Forman, North Dakota High School. 

Guests at the wedding came from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada; Owatonna and Stone Lake, Minn.; Houston, Texas; Forman, North Dakota; Milwaukee, Wausau, Medford, Dorchester, Athens, Colby, and Abbotsford.
