Lehmann, Glady I. (Marriage - 29 June 1957) 

In a ceremony performed at the Zion Lutheran Church, Granton, June 29, Miss Glady I. Lehmann of Green Bay, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Lehmann of Granton, was married to Melvin R. Smith, Appleton.  Mrs. Matie Smith of Humbird is the mother of the groom. The Rev. Arthur Oswald read the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with pink and white flowers.  Sections of a white picket fence were similarly decorated. The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, repeated her vows before 225 guests. 

The bride chose a floor-length long sleeved gown of embroidered tulle, styled with a Queen Anne collar and a fitted, long torso. The front of the skirt was of pleated net over satin, while the back was of ruffled tiers of embroidered tulle that came to a whisper train over satin. Her fingertip veil was caught in a diamond-studded crown.  The bridal flowers were white stephanotis, Amazon lilies, and trailing green ivy fashioned in a crescent-shaped bouquet.  She wore an emerald birthstone ring with a white gold setting, a gift of the groom, and the groom wore a garnet and white gold ring, gift of the bride. 

Mrs. Mortimer Sheffloe, Fremont, Neb., sister of the bride, served as matron of honor.  The bridesmaids were Mrs. Rudy Dageforde, the bride’s sister, and Mrs. Dennis Potvin, sister of the groom, both of St. Paul. Carole Lehmann attended her sister as a junior bridesmaid.  Everett Smith was his brother’s bestman.  The ushers were a brother of the bride, James Lehmann of Schenectady, N. Y., and Herb Hahn, friend of the groom, of River Falls. 
Organ music was provided by Mrs. Clarence Pannier with Wayne Salter singing "The Lord’s Prayer." 

A wedding supper for 225 guests was served in the Granton Community Hall.  The decorations there were pink and white flowers and ribbons and white wedding bells. 

Mr. and Mrs. Smith will be at home, after July 15, at 12107 Day Street Green Bay. Their wedding trip took them to Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Teton mountains in Wyoming. 

Mrs. Smith is a graduate of Granton High School and received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Wisconsin State College, Stevens Point, in 1955.  She has since been employed as a dramatics and English teacher at Preble High School in Green Bay.  The groom was graduated from Humbird High School and is employed by the Wisconsin Bell Telephone Company in Appleton.  

Relatives attending from out of town were: Capt. and Mrs. Raimon Lehmann, Washington, D.C.; Mr. and Mrs. James Lehmann, Schenectady, N. Y.; Mrs. Elroy Lehmann, Middletown, Conn.; Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Dageforde, St. Paul, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Mortimer Sheffloe, Fremont, Neb.; and Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Potvin, St. Paul, Minn.  Other relatives and friends were present from Granton, Humbird, Stevens Point, Green Bay, Appleton, Tigerton, Tomahawk, Marion, Sparta and Birnamwood.
