Jordahl, Jean Ellen (17 June 1978)

St. Mary’s Catholic Church was the site of the marriage rites, Saturday, June 17, for Jean Ellen Jordahl and Gary Everett Spiegel, both of Eau Claire. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Jim Jordahl, 807 West Fourth St., Neillsville, and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Spiegel, Rt. 2, Granton. Father James Lesczynski of Willard performed the 1:30 p.m. services at which the bride was presented by her father.

The bride chose a floor-length style bridal gown of sheer Dacron polyester, trimmed with Vancian lace and designed with a low neckline, bishop sleeves and skirt sweeping to a chapel train. She also wore an elbow length lace-edged veil. Flowers for the new Mrs. Spiegel included blue and white carnations, yellow roses and baby’s breath.

Serving as maid of honor was Sherri Sichak, Colombia Heights, who was joined by Janyce Jordahl of La Crosse, Judy Jordahl of Neillsville and Virginia Spiegel of Granton. They were attired in light blue Dacron polyester gowns with v-necklines and matching sheer capes and also carried blue and yellow daisies, white carnations and baby’s breath. Serving as junior bridesmaid was Joyce Jordahl, Neillsville.

Attending the groom was John Spiegel, Chippewa Falls, as bestman who was joined by Eugene Spiegel of Granton and Mike Kissling and Bradley Goetz, both of Neillsville. Bernie Jordahl and Dennis Spiegel were ushers.

After the church wedding, a reception, dinner and dance were held at the American Legion Hall in Neillsville. After a California honeymoon, the couple will reside at 1046 Barland Court, Eau Claire.
