Johnson, Betty Jane (Marriage- 4 June 1955) 

Betty Jane Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Johnson of Greenwood, became the bride of Carl Smith, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Smith Sr. of Neillsville, in a double ring ceremony performed June 4, at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Greenwood by the Rev. M. S. Egge. 

The bride wore a floor-length gown of nylon tulle over satin with a court train.  Her tight fitting bodice was fashioned with a mandarin collar.  The finger tip veil of sheer illusion net with Alencon lace was fastened to a head piece of sequins and seed pearls.  A white orchid surrounded by lilies of the valley tied with streamers formed her bouquet. 

She was attended by Arlys Smith as maid of honor and her bridesmaids were Marion Johnson and Janice  
Martin. They wore dresses of white, pink and blue respectively.

The groom was attended by Earl Smith, Frank Mitte and Irvin Knoop. 

After their return from a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin they will be at home in Richfield, where the groom is employed in the Richfield Cheese factory.
