Stone, Maxine (Marriage - 24 September 1960)


Miss Maxine Stone, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Stone of Neillsville, and Frank A. Fabian, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Fabian, Rt. 1, Greenwood, exchanged nuptial vows Saturday.  The Rev. Norman Lindloff performed the double ring ceremony in St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville.


The bride given in marriage by her father approached the altar in a floor-length dress of lace and sheer nylon. The full, bouffant skirt was fashioned with tiers of Chantilly lace.  The fitted bodice of lace was styled with a scalloped Sabrina neckline, trimmed with rhinestones, and the long, fitted, tapered sleeves came to a point at her wrists.  Her rhinestone trimmed fingertip veil of sheer illusion imported net was held in place by a seed pearl trimmed head piece.  She carried a bouquet of red sweetheart roses with white net and velvet accessories.


Miss Ruby Stone, a sister, was maid of honor.  Bridesmaid was Mrs. Glen Erickson, a friend. Both were attired in blue ballerina-length gowns of sheer nylon.  Self colored motifs edged the draped necklines of the fitted bodices.  Appliquéd full bouffant skirts and short sleeves further highlighted their gowns.  They wore matching headpieces edged with crystals, and carried wedding ring bouquets of autumn shades of gold, rust, and blue.


Jerome Cook, a cousin of the groom from Kohler, was bestman, and Glen Erickson was groomsman.  Alvin Ehlers, Jr., Greenwood, and Herman Fabian of Loyal, cousins of the groom ushered.


Robert Mitte sang, "The Lord’s Prayer" and "Wedding Prayer" accompanied by Victor Lehman at the organ.


Two hundred guests attended a reception in St. John’s Lutheran School.


The bride is a graduate of Neillsville High School and has been employed in Neillsville.  The groom, a graduate of the Greenwood High School, is engaged in farming on Rt. 1, Greenwood, where they will reside.


Those attending from away were from Galesville, Blair, Eleva, Strum, Mondovi, Alma, Eau Claire, Madison, Greenwood, Loyal, Oconomowoc, Palmyra, and Delavan; Tedder, Ky.; Neosho, Mo.; and Chicago, Ill.
