Cary, Jo Neil (Marriage - 16 July 1955) 

During a candle light ceremony at St. Peter’s Lutheran church, Dorchester, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Miss Jo Neil Cary, of Chicago, became the bride of Norman Zuther. Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Cary, of Hornersville, Mo., and Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Zuther, of Dorchester. 

The double ring service was read by the Rev. F. H. Sprengler. Herbert Juneau provided the organ music and accompanied Robert Cleworth, who sang "The Lord’s Prayer," and "O Perfect Love." 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of embroidered lace with net yoke and collar highlighted with embroidered flowers centered with sequins. The long sleeves tapered to points over the wrist. A head piece of embroidered flowers held the finger tip veil. The bridal bouquet was an arrangement of white and red garnet roses surrounding a single gardenia. Red roses were also tied to the ribbon streamers. 

Attending her as matron of honor was Mrs. Robert Schumacher, of Dorchester, and as bridesmaid, Miss Adeline Zuther, Cicero, Ill., both sisters of the groom. Their ballerina length gowns were identical of slate blue crystalline designed with strapless bodices. White lace jackets and white nylon mitts completed their ensembles. They carried colonial bouquets of white and yellow carnations. 

Miss Judy Cary, little sister of the bride, was flower girl. She wore a pastel blue formal with tiers of ruffled net forming the very full skirt. The ruffled bodice was topped with a net yoke. Her head piece was matching blue net. In a horse hair braid basket she carried roses as in the bridal bouquet. 

Attending the groom was Robert Schumacher, brother-in-law, of Dorchester, and Donald O’Shoney, a friend, of Cicero. 

The bride’s mother wore a navy dress with red and navy accessories, and the groom’s mother wore white accessories with a navy dress. White orchids made up their corsages. 

Following the ceremony the young people greeted about 250 guests at an outdoor reception at the farm of the groom’s parents. The Barbershoppers of Abbotsford, of which the groom is a member, provided entertainment at the reception. 

Guests were from Hornersville, Mo., Chicago and Cicero, Ill., Aberdeen, S. Dak.; Milwaukee, Rib Lake, Medford, Stetsonville, Colby, Abbotsford, Withee, Owen, Athens and Spencer. 

Mr. and Mrs. Zuther are on a wedding trip to Missouri and the Ozarks and after July 27 will be at home on the farm of the groom’s parents. Prior to her marriage, the bride was employed at Lanzit Corrugated Box, in Chicago. The groom is employed with Hug’s Surge Service at Colby.
