Crockett, June (Marriage - 5 September 1964)


The altar of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville was graced with bouquets of green, white and toast gladioli for the wedding September 5 of Miss June Crockett of Neillsville and Robert E. Schmidt of Loyal.  Their parents are Mr. and Mrs. Allan Crockett of Rt. 3 Neillsville and Mr. and Mrs. Ed Schmidt of Loyal.  Performing the nuptial mass was the Rev. Fr. Bernard T. Kelly.  Music was furnished by the church choir.


Approaching the altar with her father, the bride was attired in a floor length gown of French imported Chantilly lace and tulle over bridal taffeta. The full, bouffant skirt was styled with alternating tiers of lace and tulle, and was further accented by a sweep train.  A fitted Basque bodice was enhanced with a scoop neckline of scalloped lace, trimmed with sequins. A silk illusion veil was attached to a brilliant crown of imported crystals.  She carried a crescent arrangement of red roses and white chrysanthemums.


Acting as matron of honor was Mrs. Andrew Lindner of Muskego.  Bridesmaids were Miss Alice Larson of Neillsville and Miss Catherine Crockett. They were attired in street length dresses of toast chiffon over taffeta, fashioned with bell shaped skirts highlighted at the back with Watteau panels of nylon chiffon. Toast chiffon made up their headpieces.  Their bouquets were crescents of bronze and white chrysanthemums.


Little Lynette Goetz wore a gown identical to that of the bride in her role as flower girl.  She carried a colonial bouquet.  David Crockett, brother of the bride, as ringbearer, carried the rings on a white satin pillow.


The bestman was Bruce Crockett, brother of the bride.  Groomsmen were Eugene Schmidt and William Horn.  Ronald Schmidt and Edgar Crockett were ushers.


The American Legion Hall in Neillsville was the scene of the reception and wedding dinner and supper.


The new Mrs. Schmidt, a graduate of the Neillsville High School, was employed in Neillsville prior to her marriage.  Mr. Schmidt is an alumnus of St. Anthony’s Parochial School in Loyal and Loyal High School.


Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt have left on a wedding trip to the western states and on their return will reside on the groom’s farm in the Town of York, near Loyal.
