Ganther, Margo Rae (Marriage – 21 June 1975)

Miss Margo Rae Ganther became the bride of John Scott Burleigh in a 2 p.m. ceremony performed Saturday, June 21, at the Granton United Methodist Church by the Rev. William Noble. A reception followed at the home of the bride’s aunt, Mrs. Elaine Downer, in Neillsville.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Ganther, Rt. 1, Granton, and Mr. and Mrs. Arden Burleigh, Litchfield, Mn.

The bride’s Renaissance style gown was fashioned of ivory homespun fabric. She carried a single, long-stemmed red rose as she was presented in marriage by her father.

Maid of honor Sara Beeler, Park Falls, carried a single white carnation to accent her old-fashioned style gown of light blue homespun.

David Burleigh, Grayslake, Il., served as bestman. Lee Ganther, Granton, seated guests.

Vocalist at the ceremony was Lea Tingblad, Cambridge, Mn. Mrs. Iris Musil, Neillsville, played the piano and the organ, and Margaret Burleigh, Litchfield, Mn., played the piano.

A 1968 graduate of Granton High School and a 1972 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the new Mrs. Burleigh is employed as a music teacher. Her husband graduated from Litchfield (Mn.) High School in 1968, attended Winona State, and graduated from St. Cloud State in 1973. He teaches English.

Following their return from a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, they will make their home at Isanti, Mn.
