Turville, Ann (Marriage - 9 November 1957) 

The Rev. Frank B. Harcey performed the double ring ceremony Saturday at the Congregational Church which united in marriage Miss Ann Turville and Norman Thompson, both of Neillsville.  Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Chester Turville and Mr. and Mrs. Forest Thompson. 

Miss Turville, given in marriage by her father, wore a Chantilly lace and net over satin gown. Featuring a portrait neckline, the bitted lace bodice closed with tiny buttons down the back.  Buttons also fastened the long, tapered sleeves that came to a point over the wrists. The bouffant lace skirt was fashioned with nylon lace ruffles that extended to the floor.  Her finger-tip illusion veil with matching lace was secured to a half-hat of seed pearls and iridescent sequins. 

The bride’s attendants were Miss Eileen Hoffman as maid-of-honor, and Miss Marie Thompson as bridesmaid. They wore gowns of fuchsia and vermillion blue styled with tiers of lace and net over the skirts. Jackets and headpieces matched the gowns.  

Attending the groom were Wayne Turville, brother of the bride, and Charles Thompson, brother of the groom.  Phillip Thompson and Dale Turville ushered. 

Mrs. Turville viewed her daughter’s wedding in a wine colored dress, while Mrs. Thompson was attired in black. Both mothers wore a corsage of yellow ‘mums pinned to their shoulder lines. 

On their return from a wedding trip, the young couple will reside in Rockford, Ill., where the groom is employed.  Prior to her marriage the bride was employed in Marshfield.  Both graduated from Neillsville High School.
