Winter, Virginia (Marriage - 17 October 1959)


The Zion American Lutheran Church in Granton was the scene Saturday of the wedding of Miss Virginia Winter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Celon Winter, Rt. 2, Granton, and William L. Meier, son of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Meier of Neillsville.  The Rev. Marvin Beninga performed the double ring ceremony before an altar graced with baskets of white mums.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length dress of Chantilly lace and tulle over taffeta. The bouffant skirt was accented by ruffles of lace extending to the floor. The fitted bodice was styled with a Sabrina neckline and long fitted sleeves that came to a point at the hands.  Her veil of imported illusion was attached to a half crown trimmed with pearls and sequins, and she carried a garland bouquet of garnet roses combined with stephanotis and white carnations.


Mrs. Clarence Scharf of Granton was her matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Allen Meier of Oregon and Miss Elaine Meier of Neillsville.  The attendants wore ballerina length dresses of turquoise velvet, with matching headpieces. They carried lacey white baskets, out of which tangerine carnations cascaded, accented with glittering net loops.


The groom’s attendants were Clarence Sharf as bestman, and Allen Meier as groomsman.  Ushers were Fred Winkler of Granton, and Francis Langreck, Jr. of Neillsville.


On their return from a wedding trip to Clinton, N. Y., they will reside at 301 Grand Ave., Neillsville.


The bride has been employed in Marshfield.  The groom is employed in a Neillsville dairy plant.
