Jensen, Gloria (Marriage - 7 July 1956) 

Miss Gloria Jensen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chester Jensen, Eau Claire, became the bride of Kenneth A. Anderson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth M. Anderson, Abbotsford, in a candlelight ceremony Saturday evening. 

The Rev. Herbert Juneau officiated at the ceremony, which took place at 7:30 p.m. in Our Redeemer Lutheran church, Eau Claire. 

The bride’s gown was made with an elongated torso bodice appliquéd with Chantilly lace. The floor-length skirt, made of tulle over taffeta, with a curved band of lace encircling it, extended to form a chapel train. A contour crown of Chantilly lace, with touches of iridescent sequins and pearls, held her finger-tip veil of imported illusion. She carried a bouquet of Amazon lilies and stephanotis. 

Mrs. Bill Geary, Prairie du Chien, the groom’s sister, was matron of honor, and two friends, Miss Janice Biskey, Elk Mound, and Miss Nancy Mierow, Eau Claire, were bridesmaids. They were dressed alike in dresses of pink brocaded cotton. They were made with long torsos and full, ballerina-length skirts. They wore matching pink shoes. Their doll-type satin hats had circular veils and their cascade bouquets were made of Burgundy carnations. 

The groom was attended by George Nikolay, Oxford, as best man, and Robert Anderson, brother of the groom, Abbotsford, and Garth Jensen, Melrose, the bride’s brother. Bill Geary, Prairie du Chien, the groom’s brother-in-law, and Jim Steffen, acted as ushers. 

A reception was held in the church parlors following the ceremony. The young couple left later on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin and Canada. After July 5, they will make their home in Abbotsford. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Anderson are graduates of Wisconsin State college at Eau Claire. The groom is a coach at Auburndale high school, and the bride plans to teach a kindergarten class in Marshfield next fall.
