Kelly, Colleen (Marriage - 12 October 1957) 

The Rev. H. F. Brauer officiated Saturday at the double ring ceremony which united in marriage Miss Colleen Kelly and Franklin Cole, both of Milwaukee. The 2 p.m. ceremony took place at the St. John’s Lutheran Church, Christie. 

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. John Kelly of Neillsville, Rt. 1, and Mrs. Jane Cole of Milwaukee. 

Miss June Braun of Eau Claire was maid-of-honor, and the bride’s sister, Miss Ann Kelly, was her bridesmaid. Both wore lavender chiffon dresses and carried cascade bouquets of pink carnations tied with orchid net. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose for her wedding, a ballerina-length gown of lace and silk, over taffeta.  Her finger-tip veil fell from a crown of sequins and seed pearls. She carried an all white bouquet of Fuji mums and pompons tied with an embroidered net bow.  

Bestman was Richard Cole of Milwaukee.  Bill Kelly, brother of the bride, was groomsman. 

Approximately 90 guests attended a reception in the American Legion Hall in Neillsville. 

The bride is a graduate of Neillsville High school and the beauty school at Eau Claire. 

The newlyweds will reside at 3347 S. Kinnickinnic, Milwaukee.  

Out of town relatives and friends attending were from Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha, Wisconsin Rapids, Eau Claire, Adell, Fond du Lac, Greenwood and Granton, and Grand Rapids, Mich.
