Schwarze, Lila Lee (19 JUL 1969)

On July 19, 1969 in Domkirhens Cathedral, Stavanger, Norway, Lila Lee Schwarze and John Walther Gullixson, both of Madison, exchanged marriage vows. The Rev. Dr. Chr. Svanholm presided at the double ring ceremony.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Orlin Schwarze, route 3, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and Rev. and Mrs. G.A.R. Gullixson, Mason City, Iowa.

The bride was given in marriage by Thorstein Hoyvik, Sandnes, Norway. She wore a floor length gown of white crepe accented with lace daisy trim at the empire waist, sleeves and train. Her bouffant illusion veil was attached to a satin leaf and flower headpiece. The bridal bouquet consisted of pink and white roses.

Miss Marion Schwarze, Milwaukee, was her sister’s attendant. She was attired in a poie blue peau de soie gown with matching blue veil, and carried a bouquet of pink roses and white chesmine.

Mr. James Strand, Sandnes, Norway, formerly of Cottage Grove, served as groomsman.

Following the 6 p.m. ceremony, Vistestrand Hotel, Stavanger, Norway, was the scene of the reception and dinner.

Before returning to Madison the couple spent three weeks in Norway sightseeing.

The bride, a 1965 graduate of Luther Hospital School of Nursing, Eau Claire, has since that time been employed at University Hospital, Madison, on a pediatric intensive care unit. Having received her bachelor of science degree in nursing from the University of Wisconsin in January of this year, she has now assumed duties as assistant instructor in pediatric nursing at Madison General Hospital School of Nursing. The groom graduated in 1960 from Bethany Lutheran College, Mankato, Minn. He is employed by Westinghouse Electric Corp., Elevator Division.
