Brewer, Deanna (29 OCT 1955)


Miss Deanna Brewer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Brewer of Holcombe, and Harvey Thompson, FN of the U.S. Navy and son of Mr. and Mrs. Tilmer Thompson of Stanley, Route 2, exchanged wedding vows in a double ring ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church at Huron at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29th, 1955, with Rev. Father Sobcoyzk officiating, followed by a Nuptial High Mass.


The bride wore a floor length gown of Chantilly lace and nylon net over satin.  Sequins trimmed the lace bodice styled with long sleeves, wide panels of lace detailed the skirt.  Falling from a crown trimmed with sequins and brilliants was a silk illusion veil.  She carried a bouquet of red roses interspersed with white streamers.  Her only jewelry was a pearl necklace, a gift of the groom.


The groom was attired in his U.S. Navy uniform.


The bride was given in marriage by an uncle.


The attendants were Mrs. Ted Kotlowski of Medford, sister of the groom, and Miss Cloudette Brewer, Cadott, sister of the bride.  Both wore identical dresses of turquoise blue net over taffeta with lace boleros and matching gloves and bead purses and carried colonial bouquets of red roses and white mums.  Rhinestone jewelry, gifts of the bride, completed their outfits.


Gail and Gregory Brewer, sister and brother of the bride, were flower girl and ring bearer.  Gail wore a dress of white net over satin with lace bolero and matching gloves.  She carried a basket of variegated mums.  Her brother was dressed in a sailor styled suit.


Mother of the bride was dressed in a green silk print dress with green accessories.  The mother of the groom wore an autumn brown suit and red accessories and both wore corsages of white and red carnations.  Mrs. Hoover, of Holcombe, grandmother of the bride, was attired in a black crepe dress with black accessories and a white corsage completed her ensemble.


Rodger Thompson, brother of the groom, of Hammond, Indiana, was best man, while John Olson, friend of the groom of Gilman, was groomsman.  Cousins of the bride and groom ushered.


Following the ceremony, dinner was served to 100 relatives at the Huron Town Hall with a reception in the afternoon and dance in the evening.


Guests from out of town were from Marshfield, Holcombe, Poynette, Chippewa Falls, Boyd, Stanley, Cobbon, Medford and Hammond, Ind.


They left for Hammond, Ind. the following day and flew from there to San Diego, Calif., where the groom is on the USS White March LSD-8.  He had recently returned to the U.S., serving in the East and Japan.
