------ Jensen, Linnea (13 AUG 1966)

Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Edward Zier are now at home at 1215 S. Dewey, Apt. 19, Eau Claire.

The marriage of Miss Linnea Jensen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Jensen of Abbotsford, and Samuel Edward Zier, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Zier of Dorchester, took place Saturday, Aug. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Christian Assembly of God church, Wausau.

The Rev. Thure Johnson of Bisbee, Ariz., grand father of the bride, assisted by the Rev. Wilbur Mandigo of East Moline, Ill., her uncle, officiated at the service before the altar dedicated for the occasion two vases of white gladiolus and pompons.

Mrs. Gordon Zillman of Wausau was the organist, Miss Patricia Wright of Portage sang “The Song of Ruth” by Gonnod and “Wedding Prayer” by Dunlap and the Rev. and Mrs. Mandigo sang “Together Life’s Pathway We Tread” by Fromm.

The bride, presented in marriage by her father, was attired in a long sleeved gown of nylon organza embellished with Alencon lace. Lace appliques detailed the Sabrina neckline and the controlled dome skirt, with a double detachable watteau train extending to chapel length. A nylon organza pillbox secured the bouffant veil of nylon illusion. Yellow roses and white carnations with stephanotis and ivy were combined in her bouquet.

Miss Tamie Venzke, Abbotsford, her cousin, was the miniature bride and was attired like the bride and carried a similar bouquet.

Attending as matron of honor was Mrs. Sharon Larkin of Tomah. The bridesmaids were Miss Sandra Pickop of Manitowoc and Miss Karen Jensen of Abbotsford. The color scheme of their ensembles was topaz and gold as carried out in their floor length linen dresses fashioned with elbow length sleeves, scoop necklines and back panels with Venice lace. Blush veils were secured to gold linen open pillboxes and yellow and bronze pompons were combined in their colonial bouquets.

Mark Pokrant of Rockford, Ill., the bride’s cousin, was ring bearer, and Dan Jantsch of Dorchester was best man. David Jensen of Abbotsford and Dan Zier of Dorchester served as groomsmen and Charles Trainor of Manitowoc and Joe Herman of Appleton were ushers.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Zier received the congratulations of relatives and friends at a reception following the ceremony in the church parlor. Guests came from Milwaukee, Eau Claire, Sheboygan, Wauwatosa, Fond du Lac, Mattoon, Wausau, Appleton, Abbotsford, Dorchester, Curtiss, Milan, Athens, Colby, Manitowoc, Watertown, from Crystal Lake, East Moline, Rockford and Chicago, Ill., Bismarck, N. Dak., Bisbee, Ariz., Minneapolis and St Paul, Minn., Springfield, Mo., and Gilbert, Ia.

The bride is a 1962 graduate of the Dor-Abby high school and a June graduate of Wisconsin state college, Eau Claire. She will teach at Cadott this fall. Mr. Zier was graduated from the Dor-Abby high school the same year and presently is a senior at Wisconsin state university, Eau Claire.
