Diers, Jeanette (Marriage - 18 Sept. 1946)
In an all white, late summer wedding, Miss Jeanette Diers, of Athens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Diers, of Milan, became the bride of Gerald Muehler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Muehler, Wednesday, Sept. 18. The Rev. Raymond Schultz read the service before the 9:00 nuptial high mass at St. Thomas’ Catholic church, Milan.
The bride wore a gown of white nylon, made with a long train. The veil with its long train, fell from a head dress of pearls and rhinestones. She carried a bouquet of white roses. She wore a necklace with jewels, which were brought from Germany by the groom, and a watch brought from Switzerland.

Other members of the bridal party were Miss Arlene Carter, cousin of the bride, and Clarence Schreiber, of Athens, Miss Martha Carter, of Athens and Lloyd Van Dreel, cousins of Colby.
