Schmidt, June Leona (9 July 1977)

Miss June Leona Schmidt became the bride of Roger Dale Erickson in a 1:30 p.m. ceremony performed
Saturday, July 9, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal by the Rev. Chester Osowski. The Loyal American Legion Hall was the setting later for a reception, dinner and dance. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Henry O. Schmidt, Rt. 2 Loyal, and Mr. and Mrs. Wallace E. Erickson, Rt. 1 Neillsville.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride appeared in a floor length bridal gown of silk organza and Venise lace featuring a high neckline and ruffled, flounced skirt sweeping into a chapel train. Her Venise lace edged veil was caught by a Juliet cap. Pink roses and rainbow carnations with white daisies and baby’s breath formed her colonial bouquet.

Bridal attendants were Jill Grossbier, Green Bay, as matron of honor and Miss Cheryl Erickson of Neillsville, Miss Jean Schmidt of Greenville, S.C., Mrs. Jana Snyder of White Deer, Pa., and Mrs. Diana Schmidt of Loyal as bridesmaids. Their ruffled, flounced gowns of sheer organza in rainbow shades of pink, blue, green, lavender and yellow respectively, were complimented by matching pitcher hats. They carried colonial bouquets of rainbow-hued daisies and carnations with baby’s breath.

The groom was attended by Evan Erickson, Neillsville, as bestman, and by Ralph Schmidt of Granton, Don Kotcon of Neillsville, Allan Boon of Neillsville and Jerry Schmidt of Loyal as groomsmen. Ushering duties were shared by Jack Schmidt of Loyal, Harold Grossbier of Green Bay and Mike True of Clintonville.

The new Mrs. Erickson, a 1972 graduate of Loyal High School is employed by a Spencer firm. Her husband graduated from Neillsville High School in 1972 and from the Marshfield Technical Institute in 1974. He is engaged in farming. Following their return from a wedding trip to St. Louis, Mo., the couple will live on Rt. 1 Neillsville.
