Lemke, Sherin Rose (Marriage - 29 Dec. 1956) 

Mr. and Mrs. Robert O. Bowen are now residing in Madison, Wisconsin. Their marriage took place at Medford at St. Paul’s Lutheran church at 2:00 o’clock, Saturday, Dec. 29. 

Parents of the bride, the former Sherin Rose Lemke, are Mr. and Mrs. Herman Lemke, of Medford. Mrs. Ethel Bowen, Curtiss, is the mother of the groom. 

For her wedding, the bride chose a combination of red and white in keeping with the holiday season for her attendants, Miss Linda Mueller, of Medford, maid of honor; Miss Idelle Bowen, the bridegroom’s niece, bridesmaid; and her own niece, Patty June Lemke, as junior bridesmaid. 

Their full skirted dresses were of red velvet, with tucks outlining the off-shoulder necklines. White fur headpieces and muffs of the same material with sprays of holly completed their ensembles. 

Floor length lines featured the bridal gown of crystalette; its scalloped neckline was detailed with embroidery and seed pearls and sequins, and the long sleeves came to points over the wrists. Her French illusion veil cascaded from a coronet of seed pearls and iridescent sequins, and she carried a spray of rosebuds to complete her ensemble. 

Mr. Bowen was attended as best man by Hilarian Michlig, of Curtiss, and the bride’s brother, David Lemke, of Medford, was groomsman. Her nephew, David Prohaska, was junior groomsman, and another brother, Russell Lemke, served with Orlando Ackerman as usher. 

The bride is a 1956 graduate of Medford high school and is employed in Madison by Rural Farm Mutual. Her husband, a student at the University of Wisconsin, was graduated from Abbotsford high school and served three years with the U.S. Coast Guard.
