Anderson, Donna Mae (30 JUN 1956)


One hundred fifty relatives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Dunow greeted them at a reception in the church parlors following their marriage Saturday afternoon, June 30, 1956.  The bride, the former Miss Donna Mae Anderson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alden Anderson, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), exchanged nuptial promises with Richard Dunow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dunow, Owen, in a 1:30 o’clock ceremony in the Alliance Church at Owen.  Officiating was the Rev. M. L. Anderson.


A chapel length dress of white lace over satin styled the bride’s gown.  Attached to her bouffant skirt was a long sleeved bodice highlighted with a scoop neckline.  Lace and pearls trimmed the crown to which was attached a finger tip veil of illusion.  Comprising her bridal bouquet were red roses and blue snapdragons.


For her attendants, Mrs. Dunow chose the groom’s sister, Miss Beverly Dunow, who wore a blue strapless gown in waltz length.  Tiers of net formed the skirt which was over taffeta.  Matching lace was used for her crown headpiece.  The bride’s sister, Mrs. Allen Turnquist, Owen, wore a shell pink dress.  Pink carnations and blue snapdragons were attached to the fans they carried.


Art Delas, Owen, a friend of the groom, was the best man and escort for the maid of honor, while Allen Turnquist, brother-in-law of the bride, escorted his wife, who was the bridesmaid.  Bill Dunow, brother of the groom, and Ronald Hoffman, were in charge of ushering.  Completing the wedding party was the bride’s niece, Gloria Jean Arndt, Milwaukee, who was the flower girl.  For the occasion she wore a white nylon net over taffeta dress which had a sweetheart neckline and ruffling over the sleeves.  The dress was in floor length.  Apple blossoms were pinned in her hair, and she carried a miniature of the other bouquets.


Both graduates of Owen High School, they will make their home in Owen.  He is employed at the Post Office.


For her daughter’s wedding the bride’s mother wore a gray suit with red accessories.  She was given a corsage of red and white carnations.  The groom’s mother was attired in a two piece blue and white ensemble with which she wore white accessories.  Her flowers were blue and white carnations.


Guests for the wedding came from Milwaukee, Withee, Marshfield, Greenwood, Minneapolis, St. Cloud, Minn., Abbotsford, Curtiss and Colby.
