German, Katherine Ann (11 Dec 1976)

A wedding trip to Florida followed the December 11, 1976 marriage of the former Katherine Ann German, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Warren German, Route 2, Owen, and Roger Lee Weideman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Weideman, Route 1, Abbotsford. Upon return, the newlyweds will reside on Route 1, Abbotsford.

Christ Lutheran Church in Abbotsford was the location for the 7 p.m. ceremony. The Rev. Kenneth Loehrke, pastor, officiated, and nuptial music was provided by Mrs. Norman Kommer, organist, and Robert Olson, soloist.

The wedding reception and dance followed at the Sword in Colby.

As the bride was escorted to the altar area by her parents, she was seen wearing a full length white gown of silk illusion, pearls and lace and a full chapel train. A Juliet cap of Brussels lace with pearl accents secured her fingertip length veil, and she carried a bouquet of red roses, baby’s breath and stephanotis.

Preceding the bride down the aisle were aides, Miss Louis Weideman, Joliet, Ill., matron of honor, and Miss Patsy German, Owen, Miss Shelly Bauer, Abbotsford, Mrs. Robert Tomesh, River Falls, and Miss Sharon Karaba, Marshfield, bridesmaids. They donned dresses of wine knit, featuring jackets trimmed with matching marabou and carried bouquets of white, yellow and maroon carnations. Yellow roses also comprised the matron of honor’s bouquet.

The groom’s attendants were Arlyn Telford, Abbotsford, best man, and Steven Miller, Dorchester, Gary Wickersham and Jim Apfelbeck, both of Abbotsford, and Donald Weideman, Convoy, Ohio, groomsmen. Ushering duties were shared by Terry German, Owen, and Alfred Weideman, Colby.

The bride graduated in 1976 from Owen-Withee High School. The groom, a 1975 graduate of Abbotsford High School, is engaged in farming.
