Thieme, Laverna (Marriage - 7 July 1956) 

St. Paul’s Lutheran church, Curtiss, provided the setting for the marriage at 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon of Miss LaVerna Thieme to Wilfred Arthur Marcott. The Rev. Krause officiated. 

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Thieme, Owen, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Marcott, rt. 1, Dorchester. 

Miss Annette Thieme, Owen, was her sister’s maid of honor. Mrs. Robert Marcott, sister-in-law of the groom, and Mrs. Richard Mengel, sister of the bride, were bridesmaids. Miss Susan Marcott, sister of the groom, was flower girl. 

The bride’s white gown was floor-length, as were the gowns of all the attendants. The attendants were dressed alike in white, and carried yellow and white carnations. Beaded headdresses completed their ensembles. 

Donald Marcott, rt. 1, Dorchester, was his brother’s best man, and Robert Marcott, Abbotsford, another brother, and Richard Mengel, the bride’s brother-in-law, were groomsmen. 

A reception and dinner at the home of the bride’s parents followed the ceremony. A wedding dance at Dorchester Memorial hall in the evening completed the day’s festivities. 

The groom, a graduate of Abbotsford high school, was separated from the army security agency on June 15. The bride is a graduate of Owen high school.
