Underwood, Betsy (29 SEP 1962)


Miss Betsy Underwood of Milwaukee, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Underwood of Abbotsford, and Adolph C. Becherer of Kenosha, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Willard Becherer of rural Colby, were united in marriage Saturday, Sept. 29, 1962.


The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated at the ceremonies performed at 2:30 p.m. at the Christ Lutheran Church, which was decorated with yellow and white mums in aliar vases.


Miss Beverly Underwood, Abbotsford, was the maid of honor and the bridesmaids were Miss Pat Becherer, sister of the groom; Miss Betty Laack, cousin of the bride, and Miss Susan Underwood, sister of the bride.  Dave Dahl, a friend of the groom, was the best man.  The other attendants were Lavern Gottschalk and Bill Broughead?, friends of the groom, and John Becherer, a brother of the groom.


The bride wore a princess style gown of white silk organza with long sleeves and a large bow in the back over a deep pleated skirt with a chapel train.  The scoop neckline as trimmed with embroidered sequins and pearls and had the same effect down the center front of the skirt.  A scalloped edge elbow length veil of illusion flowed from a specially styled headpiece of pearlized orange blossoms forming a V in the front surrounding a removable white orchid going away corsage were yellow roses, stephanotis and ivy foliage.  The cascade arrangement had yellow bridal flowers in ribbon streamers.


The attendants donned attractively stylish street length dresses (a couple of lines were unreadable on my copy) over taffeta.  Matching rose petal headpieces of tulle with face veils were worn.


The maid of honor carried a basket arrangement of bronze pompons and the other attendants the same with gold, bronze and daisy pomps.


The bride’s mother wore a beige sheath dress with gold and silver metallic threads.  Matching accessories of turquoise were added.  The groom’s mother wore a blue and black sheath dress with matching jacket and blue accessories.  Each had a corsage of yellow roses.


Following the ceremony a reception for about 200 guests was held at the Abbotsford Village Hall, followed by a dinner at the church hall and a dance at Sportsmen’s Park.


After a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, the couple will be at home at 1011 S. 48th St., Milwaukee.  The groom is employed at American Motors, Kenosha.


The bride, a graduate of the Dor-Abby High School, is employed at Chez La Femme Hair Fashion Salon, Milwaukee.
