Smith, Lillian Jane (Marriage - 27 April 1968)

Miss Lillian Jane Smith of Goshen, O., daughter of Mrs Cordelia Wilder of Sardinia, O., and Gerald Lee Neumann, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Neumann of Rt. 1 Spencer, were married Saturday in Spencer. Bouquets of pink gladioli and carnations were placed on the altar, with white satin bows and pink carnations marking the pews.

Officiating at the ceremonies in St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Spencer was the Rev. M. L. Younker, with Duane Binns, a cousin, giving the bride in marriage. Nuptial songs were sung by Karen Schwantes, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Bertha Kuessel.

The bride chose a long, white gown of linen and lace, styled with a detachable lace train. Her headpiece held a bouffant veil. She carried a bouquet of white carnations and pink rosebuds.

Mrs. Judy Seefeldt of Grayslake, Ill., matron-of-honor, and Mrs. Connie Fischer of unity and Miss Debbie Bennett of Wisconsin Rapids, bridesmaids, wore long pink A-line dresses of linen. Each carried a bouquet of pink carnations. The flower girl was Peggy Landwehr, who was dressed a miniature bride.

Duane Seefeldt of Grayslake, Ill., served as bestman; and Jerome Fischer of unity and Ronald Seefeldt of Spencer were groomsmen. Ushers were Jeff Landwehr and Carl Anderson.

The bride, a 1964 graduate of Goshen High School, formerly was with the Women’s Army Corps. The groom is a 1963 graduate of Spencer High School and the University of Wisconsin farm short course in 1964. He is employed in a manufacturing plant in Spencer.

Mr. and Mrs. Neumann are on a wedding trip to eastern and northern Wisconsin and after May 6 will be at home in Spencer.
