Smith, Janet Lee (Marriage – 9 August 1975)

Columbia Park in Marshfield was chosen by Miss Janet Lee Smith and Richard Andrew Walz as the setting for their Saturday noon, August 9, wedding. The Rev. Joseph Martinson of St. John’s Catholic Church officiated for the daughter of Mrs. Loretta Smith, Rt. 2, Granton, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Walz, Gen Haven. A reception was held at the Charolais Supper Club.

Presented in marriage by her uncle, Raymond Smith, the bride appeared in a gown of silk organza over taffeta accented with lace and fashioned with a scoop neckline, empire bodice, full bishop sleeves and an A-line skirt. A Camelot headpiece held her cathedral-length illusion veil bordered with scalloped lace. She held a round bouquet of yellow, coral, blue and green roses surrounded by white carnations.

Bridesmaids Lois Smith of Granton and Mary Wolf and Diane Smith of Marshfield were gowned respectively in shades of yellow, coral and green polyester crepe, with white floral print. Their dresses featured empire waistline tie detailing and short butterfly sleeves. Each carried an arrangement of matching-hued rosebuds surrounded by white carnations.

Serving as groomsmen were Roger Esser, Glen Haven, Paul Walz, La Crosse, and Dale Breuer, Glen Haven. Bruce Smith, Granton, and Larry Walz, Glen haven, shared ushering duties.

Mrs. James Musil was the organist and Fred Schram, Granton, the soloist.

The bride graduated from Granton High School in 1972 and from Western Wisconsin Technical Institute-La Crosse in 1973 as a certified dental assistant.
