Feuerstein, Lorraine (Marriage - 12 August 1954) 

St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Neillsville, was the scene of a nuptial high mass on Thursday, August 12, when Lorraine Feuerstein, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Feuerstein, was given in marriage by her father to A/1c Donald Noll, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Noll.  Fr. Peter Leketas officiated at the 9 o’clock ceremony. 

Chantilly lace over satin formed the bride’s ballerina length gown.  Small seed pearls edged the uneven scalloped hemline and Peter Pan collar.  A pleated nylon tulle insert accentuated the front of the bride’s gown.  A matching Chantilly over satin Juliet cap, edged with seed pearls, held her veil of imported silk veiling.  Both gown and veil were made by the bride.  Talisman roses and stephanotis made up her bouquet. 

Mrs, Gilbert Frank of Oshkosh was her sister’s matron of honor.  Bridesmaids were Mrs. Bernard Langreck and Mrs. William Ross, both sisters of the groom.  The three attendants wore identical ballerina length gowns of tiered shrimp pink net over taffeta with matching Chantilly lace boleros. Their head-dresses were of fresh flowers and they carried small hoops of spider mums. 

Acting as best man for Mr. Noll was Gilbert Frank of Oshkosh, William Ross and Bernard Langreck served as ushers.  The groom, his ushers and best man all wore two-tone suits of powder and midnight blue with matching bow ties. 

The bride’s mother and elder Mrs. Noll wore Bamberg sheer dresses with reed and yellow rose corsages respectively.  

Mixed bouquets of gladioli decorated the center altar of St. Mary’s.  After the high mass a bouquet of roses was offered by the bride at the altar of the Blessed Mother while the choir sang "On This Day O’ Beautiful Mother."  The children’s choir sang under the direction of the sisters of St. Mary’s. 

Immediately following the ceremony a breakfast was served for the bridal party at the home of the bride’s parents.  Twenty-four immediate relatives were served a family style dinner at Steinie’s Club Ten.  A reception was held at 2:30 p.m. at the bride’s home and at 5 o’clock a buffet supper was served at St. Mary’s Hall for 140 guests.   

The bride and groom are graduates of the Neillsville High School.  The bride is a registered nurse, having graduated from St. Joseph’s School of Nursing, Marshfield, with the class of 1953.  She has been employed since September 1953, at Theda Clark Memorial Hospital at Neenah.  The groom was employed at the Clark County Press until his enlistment in the United States Air Force in December, 1951.  

Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Noll are spending a week’s honeymoon in Wyoming and Colorado after which they will reside in Salina, Kans.; where the groom is stationed at Smoky Hill Air Force Base. 

Out of town guests were from Oshkosh, Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Phelps, Madison, and Montgomery, Ala.
