Johnson, Gail Marie (Marriage - 14 July 1973)

Miss Gail Marie Johnson became the bride of Reggie Lawrence McKevitt in a ceremony conducted Saturday afternoon, July 14, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church by the Rev. Charles D. Brady. A reception followed in St. Mary’s Hall.

The bride, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lyall Johnson of Rt. 2 Neillsville, was presented in marriage by her father. Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence McKevitt, Jr., of Neillsville are the groom’s parents.

For her marriage, the former Miss Johnson chose a bouffant gown of nylon organza and rosepoint lace-styled with a Sabina neckline, leg o’mutton sleeves and a lace edged tiered shirt flowing into a chapel train. Her matching, lace-edged mantilla was cathedral length. She carried a cascade of pink roses, white stephanotis, baby’s breath and ivy.

Debra Dux was the bride’s honor attendant. Bridesmaids were Sheryl Harder and Susan Johnson, Madison. Their flower printed, flocked pink voile gowns over pink taffeta featured full, tiered skirts, empire waistlines and puff sleeves. White picture hats with matching pink ribbons complimented their ensembles, which were completed by white baskets of white daisies and pink carnations.

Randy McKevitt served as bestman. Groomsmen were James McCaulley of Wausau and Glenn Johnson of Liverpool, N.Y. Guests were seated by Brian McKevitt and Craig McKevitt.

Miss Mary Jo Short was the soloist and Mrs. Glenn Short, the organist.

The bride was honored at pre-nuptial showers given by Mrs. Lloyd Johnson and by the bridesmaids.

A Neillsville High School graduate, the new Mrs. McKevitt is employed at a Madison bakery. Her husband graduated from the barbering course at the Eau Claire Technical Institute and is employed by a Madison barber shop. The couple will live in Madison.
