Anderson, Dorothy (7 FEB 1959)


Miss Dorothy Anderson exchanged marriage vows with James Bjornstad before the Rev. Ralph Claybaugh on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 7th, 1959.  They are both of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.) and the daughter and son of Mr. and Mrs. Sig Anderson and Mr. and Mrs. Arne Bjornstad, all of Owen.  The 1:00 o’clock ceremony was held in the First Congregational Church at Owen.


Karen Potocnik accompanied David Jablonic on the organ for his solos, "O Promise Me" and "The Lord’s Prayer."


Miss Anderson approached the altar which was decorated with white chrysanthemums, on the arm of her father.  She wore a ballerina length white satin dress styled with a fitted bodice, three-quarter length sleeves, and scoop neckline with sequin and rhinestone trim.  A shoulder length veil was held to a headpiece trimmed with sequins and rhinestones.  A white and pink camellia bouquet completed her attire.
