Podevels, Lonna Sue (Marriage – 1 May 1976)

Miss Lonna Sue Podevels became the bride of Douglas Arthur Nacker in a 7 p.m. ceremony performed Saturday, May 1, at Zion Lutheran Church in Colby by the Rev. Robin Fink. A reception followed at the Dorchester Memorial Hall.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Podevels of Colby. Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nacker, of Rt. 1 Colby, are the groom’s parents.

A bouquet of three roses in shades of melon, yellow and white, accented with baby’s breath and fern and tied with a bow, complimented the empire-waist bridal gown fashioned with a beaded bodice and sheer, beaded, long sleeves. The gown was framed by a chapel train and chapel veil.

Empire-waist, A-line gowns of hues of melon and yellow were worn by Mrs. Sheila Hoernke, matron of honor, and Mrs. Donna Podevels, Miss Dawn Podevels, Mrs. Vicki Roth and Mrs. Connie Kilty, bridesmaids, all of Colby. Each carried a single rose.

The groom was attended by Ricky Podevels as bestman and by Dale Hoernke, Mike Kassie, Donald Schmidt and Kent Podevels as groomsmen. Ushering duties were shared by Brad Podevels and Ross Rannow. All are from Colby.

Shawn Podevels was the ringbearer and Gina Del Fatti, the flower girl.

Special music for the ceremony was by Diane and Matt Del Fatti.

The new Mrs. Nacker graduated from Colby High School in 1975 and is employed as a CRT operator at the Marshfield Clinic. Her husband, a 1974 graduate of the same school, is employed as a mechanic by an auto dealership in Abbottsford.

The newlyweds are living on Rt. 1 Colby. They will take a wedding trip at a later date.
