Faber, Connie Mae (Marriage - 25 August 1973)

The marriage of Miss Connie Mae Faber, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Faber of Rt. 1 Granton, and Richard Jerome Halverson, La Crosse, was solemnized Saturday, August 25, at Immanuel United Methodist Church in Chili. The Rev. L. L. McCormick, pastor, and the Rev. D. E. Sprague of the Neillsville Assembly of God Church officiated at the 1:30 p.m. ceremony. The bride’s father presented her in marriage.

An arrangement of red roses and white carnations accented the bride’s empire style gown of embossed lily of the valley print sating fashioned with leg o’ mutton sleeves and trimmed with blue lace.

Miss Bonne Faber, Stillwater, Mn, was her sister’s honor attendant. Bridesmaids were Jan Searls, Granton, and Holly Spiegelberg, Holcomb, Il. Their white empire-waist gowns were highlighted by floral print cloaks, the maid of honor’s in blue and white and the bridesmaids’ in red and white. Bouquets of lily of the valley and white and colored carnations matched their respective ensembles.

The groom was attended by Chuck Halverson, Germany, as bestman and by Bill Halverson, Readstown, and Mike Hagen, La Crosse, as groomsmen. Ushers were Dick and Allen Hagen.

Miss Bonnie Meissner was the organist and Kim Morphey, the flutist. Vocalists were Mr. and Mrs. Roger Rodriguez, Eric Sjoberg and daughter, Debbie, and the bridesmaids. Mrs. Henry Grottke sang at the reception, which was held in the church parlors.

Hostesses at prenuptial showers were June Nelson and Bonnie Faber, Marlene and Bernette Roehl, Bonnie Faber and Mrs. Harold Scharf and Mrs. Pat Sprague.

The new Mrs. Halverson is a 1968 graduate of Granton High School. Her husband graduated from Viroqua High School in 1967 and is employed by a La Crosse firm. They will live in the La Crosse area.
