Haslow, Barbara Jo (Marriage - 17 November 1962)


Nuptial vows were repeated Saturday in the Immanuel Evangelical United Brethren Church in Chili uniting in marriage Miss Barbara Jo Haslow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Haslow of Chili and William Baker Townsend of La Grange, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Baker Townsend.  The Rev. L. L. McCormick performed the nuptial ceremony. The bride was given in marriage by her father.


Miss Haslow, Wisconsin’s 1958 Alice-in-Dairyland, approached the altar attired in a full-skirted gown of white silk velvet, designed with a chapel train. The scoop neckline of the fitted Basque waist was enhanced with lace appliqué trimming.  Her ballerina length veil was attached to a circlet of orange blossoms.  She carried a bouquet of white roses and swainsonia, entwined with ivy.


Mrs. Robert C. Reitz of Marshfield was her matron of honor and Miss Nancy Simpson of Oberlin, O., was bridesmaid. Both wore full length sheaths of copen blue velveteen, styled with matching jackets. They carried long stemmed white roses in arm bouquets.


The groom was served by George K. Townsend of Wilmar, Minn., as bestman.  Groomsman was James C. Bryan of Antigo.  Ushers were Frederick W. Seybold of Madison and Duane Haselow of Owen.


A reception and buffet dinner were held in the church parlors.


The new Mrs. Townsend is a 1961 graduate of the University of Wisconsin, and is employed in University Hospital in Madison.  Mr. Townsend is continuing his studies at the university.  On their return from a wedding trip to the West Coast, Mr. and Mrs. Townsend will reside in Madison.
