Miller, Linda (09 Dec 1961)

Married in Tacoma, Washington at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, were Linda Bernadine Miller daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Miller, route 2, and Bill James Ehlers, who is stationed at Fort Lewis with the 32nd Division. The Rev. Patrick Godly officiated at the 10 a.m. ceremony which was held on Saturday, December 9. Organist was Mrs. Barch with the church being decorated with arrangements of white chrysanthemums.

As the bride was given in marriage by Lawrence Esselman, also with the 32nd division, she wore a floor length portrait gown of bouquet taffeta embellished with hand-clipped Chantilly lace appliqués. Sequins and pearls trimmed the neckline. The elbow-length veil was attached to a bridal headpiece and she carried white carnations and pink roses centered with a white orchid.

Maid of honor was Elaine Lezotte of Tacoma, formerly of Neillsville and bridesmaid was Betty Jean Alden, also of Tacoma. They were attired in pale pink street dresses with deeper pink trim. Their flowers were white carnations with pink trimming.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Ehlers, route 1, Greenwood, chose Virgil Lezotte, Tacoma, formerly of Neillsville to be his best man and groomsman was LaVerne (Pete) Lindner of Fort Lewis.

Following the ceremony a bridal dinner and reception was held at the New Yorker after which the couple left on a honeymoon trip to the Pacific Ocean coast.

The new Mrs. Ehlers is a 1959 graduate of Loyal High School and the Accredited School of Beauty Culture at Eau Claire. Her husband was graduated in 1955 from Greenwood High School and is presently serving with the US Army in the 32nd Division. They are at home at 602 North 1 Street, Tacoma, Washington.
