Elmhorst, Geraldine Fay (Marriage - 7 June 1958) 

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church at Granton was the scene June 7, of the wedding of Miss Geraldine Fay Elmhorst, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Elmhorst of Granton, R. 1, and Donald Scharf, son of Mrs. Edna Jahnke of Rt. 1, Neillsville. 

The Rev. Schreiber performed the double ring ceremony before an altar banked with spring garden flowers. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor-length gown of satin with four tiers of net over all.  The fitted bodice was sleeveless and was fashioned of lace over satin, from which fell a chapel length train. A finger-tip veil flared from the pearl and rhinestone encrusted queen’s crown. She carried a bouquet of pink roses and lily-of-the-valley. 

Miss Catherine Elmhorst, a sister, was maid of honor.  The groom’s sister, Mrs. Richard (Florence) Wallace, was her bridesmaid.  The bride’s four-year-old sister, Barbara, was her flowergirl. 

Best man was the groom’s uncle, Clarence Scharf.  Richard Wallace and Richard Elmhorst were groomsmen. 

A reception following the ceremony was held at the home of the bride’s parents. 

On their return from a wedding trip to the western states they will reside in Granton. 

The bride, a graduate of the Loyal High School, is a nurse’s aid at Memorial Hospital, Neillsville; and the groom, who was graduated from Granton High School, is owner of Granton Electronics.
