Gall, Betty Ann (Marriage - 5 Jan. 1957) 

Mr. and Mrs. Howard Barr will make their home in Colby, Wisconsin after a wedding trip through the southern states. Mr. Barr is employed there by the Northern States Power Company. The bride, who received her nurse’s training at St. Joseph’s School of Nursing at Marshfield, is employed at the Colby Clinic. 

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William M. Barr, of Colby, and the bride, the former Betty Ann Gall, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marvin F. Gall, of Medford.


The exchange of vows was heard by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Gregory Rueter in Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Medford, at 8:00 o'clock Saturday morning, Jan. 5. Attending the bridal pair as best man and matron of honor were the bride's brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. William Shinek, Jr., Milwaukee. Their other attendants were Mr. and Mrs. Angus Lamont, Jr., of Colby.

A wide V-neckline banded with net featured the lace bodice of the bridal gown. Lace also was used in the peplum which topped the net hooped skirt. Red and white roses were in her bouquet.

Lace bodices and net-over-taffeta skirts detailed the gowns worn by her attendants. The rose of Mrs. Shinek's frock was matched with the rose carnations which she carried in combination with white carnations. White carnations were also combined with blue ones to match Mrs. Lamont's dress.

Breakfast at the home of the bride followed the nuptials. Other events of the day were the wedding reception and supper, which were held in the V.F.W. Club, Medford.
