Wedding Bells Kept Busy On Saturday



Miss Jeanette J. Willner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. J.

Joseph Graf, pastor of the church, the celebrant.


The bride was gowned in a long white satin dress, in coat effect, with a long train, her veil was composed of lace scallops and bows inserted and the headdress was of seed pearls and rhinestones.  Mrs. Ralph Rogers, sister of the groom, was maid of honor and was gowned in white taffeta with long sleeves and shirred square neck.  The bride carried a bouquet of pink roses and chrysanthemums while the maid of honor wore a shoulder corsage.  Margaret Cramer was the bridesmaid and was gowned in white taffeta with a gold cross as the ornament.  The bride and maid of honor also wore gold crosses.  Harry Werner, a brother of the groom was best man while Lester Willner, brother of the bride was also an attendant.
