Yost, Alene (5 JAN 1957)


Oklahoma City, Okla., where the bridegroom is stationed at Tinker Air Force Base, will be the address of the William L. Johnsons, whose nuptial vows were heard by the Rev. A. Claybaugh Saturday in First Congregational Church, Owen.


The brides is the former Miss Alene Yost of Oklahoma City, and the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otis Henning of that city.  Her husband’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Herman Newman of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).


The couple is touring southwestern states enroute to Oklahoma.


When she appeared for the bridal procession, the bride was seen in a dress of nylon lace over satin, with a fingertip veil attached to a Juliet cap.  Bracelet length sleeves and a sweetheart neckline edged with seed pearls were details of the bodice worn over a bouffant waltz length skirt.


Her bouquet was a shower arrangement of white mums and pink carnations.


Attending her as maid of honor was the bridegroom’s sister, Miss Janice Johnson of Owen, and Miss Marilyn Sugden, also of Owen, was bridesmaid.  Their identically styled frocks were waltz length, with jackets to cover the strapless lace bodices.  Their headpieces matched the lace and net gowns.


Miss Johnson, who was dressed in mint green, carried orchids and white mums tied with orchid ribbons, and Miss Sugden, in an orchid dress, carried yellow and white mums with yellow ribbons.


Attending the bridegroom as best man was his brother, Earl Johnson.  Thomas Allen was groomsman and ushers were Lynn Fillip and Thomas Johnson another brother of the bridegroom.  All are Owen residents.


As music for the ceremony, Miss Audrey Laakso sang "I Love You Truly" and "The Lord’s Prayer."  Miss Joan Zalabsky was her accompanist.


The Woodlawn Hotel in Owen provided the setting for the wedding and reception which followed the ceremony.


Out of town guests for the day were from Madison, Menomonie, Withee, Thorp, Milwaukee and Medford.
