Erickson, Karen Sue (11 November 1978)

An early Saturday afternoon, November 11, mass began the marriage of Karen Sue Erickson and Ralph Weber at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Neillsville. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Meier, Neillsville, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hans Weber, Neillsville.

With the Rev. Joseph Henseler officiating, the bride’s father presented her to the altar. Loretta Rose sang and played the guitar to “The Wedding Song” and “The Lord’s Prayer,” accompanied by Mrs. Glenn Short on the organ.

The bride chose a floor length empire-styled gown with bishop sleeves and a skirt that swept to a chapel tr9in. Matching lace edged the ankle length veil. She also wore a Queen Anne’s necklace and carried a cascade of silk red roses, blue and white carnations and a touch of baby’s breath.

Donna Struensee, Milwaukee, served as maid of honor and was attired in an ice blue gown with lace jacket. She carried a nose gay of pink silk roses, white carnations and blue forget-me-nots.

Bestman was Walter Weber, Wisconsin Rapids. Also joining in the wedding party were Kevin Erickson, the bride’s brother, as ringbearer; Rhonda Roehl, Granton, as flower girl; and ushers were Tim Kren, Neillsville and Gene Roehl, Granton.

Prenuptial events included a shower given by Donna Struensee and Sandy Erickson while after the wedding ceremony a reception was held at the Bali Hai Supper Club.

The bride is a 1978 graduate, and the groom is a 1973 graduate of Neillsville High School. He is engaged in farming.
