Rasmussen, Carol (30 MAR 1957)


On Saturday, March 30th, 1957 at 7:30 p.m. in a candlelight double ring ceremony Carol Rasmussen of Stanley became the bride of James Winger.  The Rev. Cecil Ward officiated at the rites which were at the Methodist Church at Stanley.


The music was furnished by Mrs. Harold Isenberger with Magnhild Soderberg as soloist.  Baskets of spring flowers and candelabra adorned the altar.


Parents of the bride are Mr. and Mrs. Robert Rasmussen of Stanley and James is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Eldred Winger of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).


The bride, given in marriage by her father, was attired in a floor length gown of silk Peau de Soie with Alencon lace at the waist fashioned with a scoop neckline, long tapered pointed sleeves and a butterfly bustle.


Her fingertip veil was attached to a rhinestone studded crown.  She carried orchids and lilies of the valley.


As her maid of honr, the bride chose her friend June Grendys of Thorp, and as bridesmaid, Faye Winger, and as junior bridesmaid Sue Winger, both sisters of the groom.  Their dresses were of pink pleated nylon with a tucked bodice scoop neckline and a contrasting pink cummerbund.  They wore matching crowns with a circle veil and carried painted daisies.


Daniel Winger was best man for his brother and Harold Isenberger and Lyle Brandt served as ushers.


Mrs. Rasmussen chose a navy blue dress to wear at her daughter’s wedding with white accessories and a corsage of white stephanotis.  The groom’s mother also wore navy blue with pink accessories with a similar corsage.  Both grandmothers were present and each had a corsage of white carnations.


A reception for 100 guests was held in the church parlors decorated tastefully with flowers and candles where a buffet style supper was served.  Karen Henderson of Stanley poured.


The young couple will spend their honeymoon in the east and Florida.  They will make their home at Davisville, Rhode Island while James is serving in the U.S. Navy.


The bride attended school at Stanley and has been employed at the Thorp Finance Corp.  The groom attended school at Thorp and since has been in the U.S. Navy.
