Kieser, Muriel Edith (Marriage - 5 June 1965)


Christ Lutheran Church in Abbotsford was the setting Saturday, for the 4 p.m. wedding of Miss Muriel Edith Kieser, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb G. Kieser of Abbotsford, and Warren Harold Puhl, son of Mrs. Adel Puhl of Colfax.


Officiating at the double ring ceremony was the Rev. F. H. Sprengler.  Robert Lee Benson of Abbotsford played nuptial organ music.  During the ceremony, Herbert Juneau of New Lisbon sang, "O Perfect Love" and "The Lord Bless You," accompanied by Mr. Benson.


The bride was attired in a gown of peau de soie in floor length style. The princess line of the skirt was accented at the back by a court lace train. The fitted Basque bodice was fashioned with long, tapered sleeves and a scoop neckline, complimenting the lace mock bolero. A double crown of pearls and crystals held her bouffant veil of sheer illusion.  She carried a prayer book topped with an arrangement of phalaenopsis and stephanotis.
