Swan, Marsha Lynn (Marriage – 12 June 1976)

Miss Marsha Lynn Swan became the bride of Gary James Hohenstein in a 2:30 p.m. ceremony performed Satruday, June 12, at the Neillsville United Methodist Church by the Rev. William Noble. Afterward, the couple greeted guests at a reception at the American Legion Hall. A dance was held that evening at the Silver Dome ballroom.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride is the daughter of Lione and Delores Peterson of Moore Haven, Fl. Darrel and Joyce Hohenstein, Rt. 2 Granton, are the groom’s parents.

A bouquet of yellow and lavender roses with white carnations accented the bride’s traditional white gown styled with long, puffed, sheer sleeves, a high-collared lace bodice and lace at the hemline. Her short veil was held by a lace and pearl-covered headband.

Shelley Currey, Albuquerque, N.M., was the honor attendant and Kathy Peterson and June Lyon, Black River Falls, and Lori Long, Hudson, Fl., were the bridesmaids. Their high-collared, full-length gowns, two in shades of yellow and two in lavender, were fashioned with long, sheer sleeves. Yellow and lavender roses with white carnations formed their bouquets.

The groom was attended by Mike Hohenstein, Janesville, as bestman and by Mike Johnson, Merrillan, and Dale Hohenstein, Granton, as groomsmen. Gene Hohenstein, Granton, and Bruce Hohenstein, Janesville, served as ushers.

The new Mrs. Hohenstein attended school in Albuquerque, N.M. and also attended Western Wisconsin Technical Institute. Her husband graduated from Neillsville High School and is employed by a local manufacturing firm.

They will live on Rt. 1 Neillsville, following their return from a wedding trip to Florida.
