------ Schaefer, Sharon Marie (? MAY 1966)

John George Pupp took Miss Sharon Marie Schaefer as his bride in a ceremony performed during a 12 o’clock nuptial high mass at St. Bernard’s church, Abbotsford, with the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz officiating.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Reinhold Schaefer and William Pupp, all of Abbotsford, route 1, and the late Mrs. Pupp.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was attired in a floor length gown of white lace with long sleeves and a scalloped sculptured neckline embroidered with sequins and pearls.  The very full skirt featured a front of alternating tiers of lace and pleated nylon tulle sprinkled with iridescent sequins and accented in the back with a lace rose.  A triple crown of pearls and aurora borealis crystals with large crystal drops secured her bouffant veil of nylon illusion.  White streamers tipped with pink garneted roses showered from the cascade arrangement of pink roses, white carnations, stephanotis and ferns.

Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Stettler, brother-in-law and sister of the bride, Miss Bonnie Pupp and Eugene Pupp, sister and brother of the groom, all of route 1, Abbotsford, attended the couple.

Kenneth Schaefer of route 1, Owen, and Gary Pupp of Hewitt seated the guests in the church where vases of pink and white gladioli and mums adored the altars.

The bride’s attendants were dressed alike in gowns of white organza over aqua taffeta designed with scoop necklines.  Venetian lace edged the elbow length sleeves and crescent waistlines and cabbage roses topped the back panels of the bell-shaped skirts.  Their short halo veils were secured to matching crowns trimmed with pearls and crystals.  They carried colonial bouquets of pink tinted pompons surrounded by white carnations with fern and white ribbons.

After the ceremony 140 guests attended the reception at the Abbotsford city hall and the 4 o’clock dinner at St. Bernard’s church hall.  In the evening the new Mr. and Mrs. Pupp received the good withes of wishes of friends at a wedding dance at Trianon Ballroom.

Upon their return from a honeymoon trip to neighboring states and Canada, they will make their home at route 1, Abbotsford.

Both the bride and groom are graduates of the Abbotsford high school.  Mr. Pupp is employed as a mechanic at Galvin Truck & Equipment at Abbotsford.

Guests at the wedding came from Colby, Dorchester, Stetsonville, Medford, Marshfield, Spencer, Milwaukee, Wausau, Stratford, Granton, Loyal, Marengo, Edgar, Withee, Athens and Janesville.
