Dodmead, Lornamae (Marriage - 11 October 1969)

Miss Lornamae Dodmead, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Dodmead of Neillsville, became the bride of James H. Lee, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. James H. Lee, Sr., Saturday, October 11, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Akron, O. The Rev Sam Cissolini officiated at the double ring ceremony before approximately 100 guests. White gladioli formed the altar bouquets.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor-length gown of sheer organza, styled with a natural waistline and long, tapered sleeves. The redingote lace-trimmed skirt revealed lace ruffles that swept into a lace-trimmed chapel train. Her bouffant silk illusion veil was held in place with a cluster of lace petals enhanced with pearls. She carried a bouquet of white ‘mums and ivy leaves.

Miss Vada Lee, cousin of the groom, served as maid of honor. Her street-length pastel green sheath dress of bonded lace over taffeta featured a Peter Pan neckline and long sleeves. She wore a matching headpiece. Yellow ‘mums and ivy leaves formed her bouquet.

Larry Lee, the groom’s cousin, was bestman. Lonnie Phillips served as usher.

David and Wesley McLane, nephews of the groom, were ringbearers. They were dressed in white coats and dark trousers and carried ring pillows of white satin and lace.

Flower girls were Darla and Debby McLane, nieces of the groom. Their dresses of pink taffeta featured full skirts and elbow-length sleeves. They wore headpieces to match. Each carried a white basket with yellow ‘mums.

Music was provided by St. Anthony’s organist.

White, green and pink streamers and white bells decorated the home of the groom’s parents where a reception was held for the bride and groom and wedding guests.

Mrs. Lee, a 1969 Neillsville High School graduate is employed as a nurse’s aide at the Little Forest Medical Center in Akron. Mr. Lee is an employee of Motor Freight Express.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Lee are residing at 1678 Newton St. Akron, O.
