Dyre, Margie Jean (Marriage - 14 March 1970)

A candlelight service March 14 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Greenwood was the setting for the marriage of Miss Margie Jean Dyre of Neenah, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey Dyre of Greenwood and Richard Lee Olson of La Crosse, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Olson of Greenwood. The Rev. David Wenger performed the 7 p.m. double-ring ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor-length gown of white satin in Empire styling featuring a lace and satin train and a shoulder length veil. She carried a bouquet of white calla lilies nested in white stephanotis.

Miss Arlene Dyre, sister of the bride, as maid-of-honor and Miss Diane Olson, of Marshfield sister of the groom, as bridesmaid, were attired in light blue floor length chiffon gowns and matching veiled headpieces. Each carried an arrangement of white daisies and blue carnations.

Duane Olson served his brother as bestman and Jerry Olson of Minneapolis, Minn., another brother, was groomsman. Seating the guests were Joseph La Monica of Rolling Meadows, Ill., and Chester Turnquist of Greenwood. Candle-lighters were Donald Syepanski of Minneapolis, Minn., and Wayne Nielsen of Greenwood. Joseph C. La Monica and Jeff Olson were ringbearers.

“O Perfect Love” and “The Wedding Prayer” were sung by Mrs. Duane Olson with Miss Sandy Olson as organist.

Following the ceremony a dinner was held in the church parlors.

The bride is a 1969 graduate of Wisconsin State University - La Crosse, and is a teacher in Neenah. The groom will graduate from La Crosse State this June.
