Betts, Cherilyn I. (Marriage - 23 August 1969)

Exchanging wedding vows at the United Methodist Church in Norwalk August 23, at 1 p.m. were Cherilyn I. Betts daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bruno W. Meyer of Norwalk, and Charles T. Hare, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Hare of Greenwood. The Rev. Lloyd C. Denzer officiated at the double-ring ceremony performed before 150 guests. Bouquets of apricot and white daisies decorated the church.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a gown of white organza featuring a Chantilly lace bodice, trimmed with seed pearls and French sequins at the neckline. Motifs of lace, edged with sequins, were part of the A-line skirt that was completed with a chapel-length train. A bouffant shoulder-length veil fell softly from a crown and petal headpiece of pearls, crystals and sequins. She carried a cascade arrangement of white and Zernia tea roses.

Mrs. David (Kay) Mick of La Farge was matron-of-honor. Carolyn Lehner of Norwalk and Mrs. Jon (Nancy) Hanson, sister of the bride, served as bridesmaids. They were attired in gowns of apricot lace over satin, with nylon sheer attached, long-sleeved coats with lace wrist bands. They wore apricot and white picture hats. Each carried a basket of white and shrimp daisies.

Larry Duda of Curtiss was bestman. Groomsmen were George Hare, Jr., brother of the groom; and Kenneth Betts of Norwalk, brother of the bride. David Mick, John Clark and Jon Hanson served as ushers.

Jon Hanson sang “The Lord’s Prayer” and “The Wedding Prayer” accompanied by Mrs. Lucille Drier of Norwalk.

Apricot and white streamers and white bells decorated the church basement, where a reception was held for 150 guests. Later, a dance was held in Greenwood.

The bride, who is employed in Loyal, is a graduate of Brookwood High School and the La Crosse Beauty School. The groom, a Greenwood High School graduate, is employed in Marshfield.

They are residing at 208 West Division Street in Greenwood.
