Bushman, Joan (14 AUG 1971)

Miss Joan Bushman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Aloysius Bushman, route 1, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), was given in marriage by her father and mother to Hugh Christie, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Christie, Greenwood, at 1 p.m. Saturday, August 14, 1971, in St. Mary's Church, Greenwood.

The bride was escorted into church and given in marriage during a ceremony performed by the Rev. Leander Koopman, for which Mrs. Tom Felton, Eau Claire, was organist, and Donna, Debbie and Diane Zepaltas sang.

The bride selected for her dress a white Venice lace empire gown over taffeta, with Victorian styling and a chapel length train with an elbow length English illusion bouffant veil held with a coronet headpiece. She carried white daisies accented with blue baby's breath for her bouquet.

Asked to serve as bridal aides were Miss Jayne Neuenfeldt, Greenwood, the maid of honor, and Miss Sue Scherer of Greenwood, Miss Theresa Bushman, Milwaukee, and Miss Marcia Bushman, Milwaukee.

They wore floor length gowns of blue and white printed organza over blue taffeta frocks with blue picture hats and carried blue daisy baskets.

Others in the wedding party were James Dillenbeck of Greenwood, best man, Dennis Denk, Eau Claire, Edward Yurkovich, Willard, and Timothy Christie, Anoka, Minnesota. Mr. Edward Bushman and Mrs. James Christie of Greenwood were ushers.

A reception and dinner following the ceremony was held at the Legion Hall in Greenwood, followed by a wedding dance in the evening at the Silver Done Ballroom, Neillsville.

The bride is a graduate of the McConnell Airline School, Minneapolis, and has been employed by Honeywell Inc., Minneapolis. Her husband is a graduate of Eau Claire Technical Institute and is employed by Greenwood Homes Inc. Following a northern Wisconsin honeymoon, the Christies will live at 205 N.
