Mandel, Shirley Gwen (Marriage - 12 Apr. 1958) 

Mr. and Mrs. Donald Voge are now living in their new home on Butternut Street, following a honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin. Their marriage took place April 12 in a ceremony at the V.F.W. hall at Marshfield during which two daughters of the Alfred E. Mandels became brides. 

Miss Shirley Gwen Mandel and Donald Erwin Voge, son of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph E. Voge, of Abbotsford, and Miss June Wanda Mandel and Victor Freeman McHone, of Granton, were the couples. Performing the ceremony was Loyal Petran, a representative of the Pastoral Bible Institute of Brooklyn, N.Y. He is a son of the late Fred Petran, who officiated at the marriage of the bride’s parents.  

The brides wore identical gowns of waltz length embroidered nylon tulle over taffeta. Crowns of seed pearls and rhinestones held their shoulder length veils. They carried cascade bouquets of Easter lilies with lilac and white carnations and laurel leaves. 

Mrs. Voge’s matron of honor was Mrs. Robert Wibben, of Colby, sister of the groom, and Miss Judith Wibben, his niece, was flower girl. 

Mrs. Wibben wore an orchid colored waltz length gown of lace and net over taffeta with a matching head piece. Judith wore a white ruffled gown of net and lace over satin. They carried nosegay bouquets of carnations to match their dresses. 

Mrs. McHone’s matron of honor was Mrs. Arla Mae Wellnitz, Loyal. She wore a green waltz-length gown of lace and net over taffeta. Her headpiece was a braided crown with rhinestones trim, and her flowers were a nosegay of green and white carnations to match their dresses.  

Mr. Voge’s best man was Herbert R. Mandel, of Loyal, brother of the brides.  

Brent Carpenter, nephew of the brides, was ring bearer. Performing the ushering duties were Robert Wibben of Colby and Harold Kuehmichel, of Marshfield. 

Both brides are graduates of the Loyal high school. Mrs. Voge has been doing secretarial work in Marshfield. Mr. Voge, a graduate of the Abbotsford high school, is an auto mechanic.
