Humboldt, Judith Ann (Marriage - 19 August 1972)

Bouquets of pink gladioli decorated the altar of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville as Miss Judith Ann Humboldt became the bride of Bernard G. Spiegel. The Rev. Charles D. Brady officiated at the 2 p.m., August 19 ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her brother, Dale Humboldt, is the daughter of Mrs. Ruth Humboldt, Rt. 1 Willard. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Spiegel, Rt. 1 Granton, are the groom’s parents.

A hand-fashioned, empire-style bridal gown of beige crepe featuring Camelot sleeves and framed by an elbow-length tulle veil caught by a lace cap was chosen by the former Miss Humboldt. She carried an arrangement of strawflowers, baby’s breath, asters, cornflowers and miniature carnations in shades of lavender, purple, pink and white.

The bride’s sister, Miss Joyce Humboldt of Willard, as maid of honor and Miss Marilyn Horswill as bridesmaid were attired in full-sleeved, empire-style gowns of orchid crepe accented with glamilia bouquets.

David Spiegel, brother of the groom, served as bestman. Dennis Spiegel was the groomsman. The bride’s brother, Gary Humboldt, and the groom’s brother, Bruce Spiegel, acted as ushers.

“One Hand, One Heart” and “The Wedding Prayer” were sung by Joyce Tesmer of Colby. Mrs. Glenn Short was the organist. A reception was held in the American Legion Hall.

The new Mrs. Spiegel has completed three years at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and will continue her education at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Her husband attended District One Technical Institute at Eau Claire and is presently employed in Stoughton.
