Gardner, Lorea E. (26 MAY 1951)


Miss Lorea Ethel Gardner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gardner, became the bride of Harold R. Kollmansberger, son of Robert Kollmansberger, all of Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.), in a ceremony performed at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 26th, 1951, in Trinity Lutheran Church, with the Rev. Alvin O. Pinke officiating.


The bride was gowned in an entrained satin and lace gown with a sweetheart neckline.  Her fingertip veil cascaded from a crown of seed pearls and rhinestones and she carried a bouquet of red roses and gladiolas.


Miss Velma Gardner, Loyal, the bride’s sister, and Mrs. Leonard Kollmansberger, sister-in-law of the groom, were bridesmaids.  Both wore gowns of Nile green styled like the maid of honor’s.  All the bridal aides carried bouquets of yellow and white carnations.


Robert Kollmansberger Jr. was his brother’s best man.  Leonard Kollmansberger, another brother of the groom, and Elmer Gotter, served as groomsmen.


Nancy and Raymond Gardner, niece and nephew of the bride, respectively, served as flower girl and ring bearer.  Nancy wore a white dress complemented with a white veil, and she carried a bouquet of yellow and white carnations.


The newlyweds greeted relatives and friends at a reception held at the home of the bride’s parents, and later in the afternoon, a supper was served in the church parlors.


The groom is employed as a railroad section worker at Owen.


Guests at the wedding were from Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis.
