Stevens, Joanne (Marriage - 14 July 1956) 

The Zion American Lutheran Church at Granton was the setting for the 2:30 p.m. Saturday wedding of Miss Joanne Stevens and Wallace Krause, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. Irving Stevens of Neillsville, Rt. 4, and Mr. and Mrs. Carl Krause of Granton. 

The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Marvin Beninga before an altar banked with white and yellow gladioli and blue delphinium.  After the ceremony a reception for 100 guests was held in the church basement, which was decorated with garden flowers.  

As the bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, she wore a white floor length dress fashioned with a tiered skirt of lace trimmed nylon net over satin.  The tight fitting bodice was complete with a squared neckline, and short sleeves.  To complete her outfit she wore lace net mitts.  Her finger-tip veil was attached to a lace, pearl trimmed Juliette cap.  Her bouquet consisted of a purple orchid surrounded by whie stephanotis. 

The bride was attended by Joyce Vincent as maid of honor and Kathleen Krause as bridesmaid. 

Attending the groom as bestman was Kenneth Krause, and groomsman was Erland Marg.  Ushers were Arnold Trachte and Donald Krause. 

Appropriate music was furnished by Wilfred Galstad. 

The bride is a graduate of the Neillsville High School with the class of 1950 and has been employed at the First National Bank at Neillsville.  The groom is also a 1950 graduate and has spent four years with the U. S. Air Force.  He is employed by the R & W Construction Co. of Milwaukee, where the young couple will make their home.
