Hoffmann, Eileen (Marriage - 26 April 1958) 

The Immanuel Lutheran Church of Globe was the scene Saturday afternoon of the wedding of Miss Eileen Hoffmann and Bob Bell, both of Rt. 3, Neillsville. The Rev. Robert Schlicht performed the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with potted hydrangeas. 

Parents of the young couple are Mr. and Mrs. William Hoffmann and Mr. and Mrs. Kermit Bell, all of Neillsville, Rt. 3. 

The bride’s gown of white French rosé point Chantilly lace and pleated nylon tulle over satin was fashioned with a full skirt and fitted bodice.  The long fitted sleeves came to a point at the wrists, and the Sabrina neckline was outlined with sequins and pearls.  Rows of pleated nylon extended into a chapel train.  A hand-rolled veil of imported illusion fell to the waistline from a princess crown stuffed with sequins and pearls. She carried a crescent bouquet of red roses and whie feathered carnations. 

Attending as maid of honor was her friend, Miss Carlotta Tichy.  Bridesmaids were Helene Kalsow, Janice Greeler and Patricia Cutts. They were attired in white gowns with yellow cummerbunds and headpieces.  They carried cascade bouquets of roses and carnations to match the cummerbunds. 

The bestman was Raymond Strangfeld.  Groomsmen were Melvin Hoffmann of Ft. Knox, Ky., Ronald Richmond and Russell Wold.  Ushers were George Koerner of St. Paul, Minn., and Edward Strangfeld. 

"The Wedding Prayer" and "The Lord’s Prayer" were sung by Robert Mitte and JoAnn Grap, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Robert Schlicht. 

A reception for 225 guests was held at the American Legion Hall following the ceremony. 

The bride and groom are graduates of Neillsville High School. On their return from a wedding trip they will reside on Rt. 3, Neillsville, where the groom is employed on his father’s farm.
