Baird, Janice M. (15 NOV 1947)

A double ring ceremony at Evangelical Reformed Church, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), on Saturday, Nov. 15, 1947, united in marriage Miss Janice M. Baird and Kenneth E. Steiger. The Rev. J.C. Klingeberger read the marriage service.

The bride, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. H.R. Baird, Greenwood, chose an ivory satin gown fashioned with a bertha collar, long pointed sleeves which came to points at the wrist, and a half-peplum. The hoped skirt ended in a long train and her finger-tip veil of French illusion was held by ivory satin covered orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of fresh colored roses, white mums, and gardenias.

Mr. Steiger is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Steiger of Greenwood.

Miss Virginia Baird, Eau Claire, maid of honor for her sister, and the groom’s brother, Ervin Steiger, served as best man. The bridal party also included the bride’s cousins, Miss Dorothy Kauffman, Marshfield, as bridesmaid, and Ronald Davel, Oshkosh, as groomsman. Ushers were Everett Humke, Stevens Point, and Jimmie Davel, Loyal.

The bride’s attendants were dressed identically in gowns of gold colored taffeta, matching gloves and headbands. They carried cascade bouquets of roses and chrysanthemums in bronze tones.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, followed by dinner served to relatives and friends in the church parlors. In the evening a wedding dance was held at the Merry Ol’ Gardens.

After a wedding trip to Iowa, the couple will reside at Greenwood.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Steiger are graduates of the Greenwood High School. Mrs. Steiger attended beauty culture school in Eau Claire, and is now employed as cashier at the IGA. Store at Greenwood. Mr. Steiger, a veteran of one and one-half years in the Army, is also employed at the IGA Store.
