Schlecht, Elizabeth Lina (Marriage - 17 October 1959)


Post Chapel number 4 at Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo., was the scene of the wedding October 17 of Miss Elizabeth Lina Schlecht of Marshfield, and Herbert Charles Puscheck of Chili, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. Michael Schlecht, 808 Adler Rd., Marshfield, and Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Puscheck of Chili.


The bride approached the altar on the arm of Maj. Paul C. Johnson, who gave her in marriage.  For her wedding she wore a white organza princess-styled floor length dress with a short train.  The fitted bodice was styled with a scoop neckline decorated with pearl studded lace flowers.  Her fingertip veil cascaded from a coronet headpiece, and she carried a bouquet of white stephanotis and yellow spider ‘mums.


Her maid of honor was Miss Adrienne Altenpetev of Walworth.  Bridesmaids were Miss Mary Puscheck of Chili and Mrs. Romayne Schroder, Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo.  They wore princess-style velvet dresses in autumn colors and carried bronze ‘mum nosegays.


Bestman was Lt. Robert Hayden. Groomsmen and ushers were Lt. Romayne Schroder, Lt. Fred Guel, Lt. William Schroeder, Lt. William Carroll, Lt. Charles Sprague and Lt. Stanley Smith.


A reception was held at the officer’s open mess in Ft. Leonard Wood. The bride and groom passed under the traditional arch of sabers.


The bride, a University of Wisconsin graduate, has been doing her internship in physical therapy in Nashville, Tenn.  The groom is an honor graduate of West Point Military Academy and is a second lieutenant in the army.


They have returned from a wedding trip through the Ozarks and the Midwest, and in November will leave for Aschaffenburg, Germany, where the groom will be stationed.
