    Nadeau-Lister Vows in Rossville

    The marriage of Jeanette Elaine Nadeau, Rossville, to Gerald Lee Lister, Topeka, was solemnized at 3 p.m. Sunday, August 31, in the Rossville Methodist Church. The bride is a daughter of Mrs. Paul E. Nadeau and the late Paul E. Nadeau, Rossville, and the bridegroom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Thearon Lister, Topeka.

    The Rev. Don Jones officiated. Music was provided by Mrs. Joe Campbell, pianist, and Mrs. Don Berkey, soloist.

    The bride, given in marriage by her uncle Arch Nadeau, wore a floor-length gown of embroidered tulle. The tight fitting bodice was accented with a scoop neckline outlined in small self-material medallions studded with iridescent sequins. The very full skirt was designed with a cascade of scalloped flounces accenting the fullness of the sweep-trained skirt. The fingertip length veil was edged in lace and fell from a heart-shaped tiara of pleated lace tipped with seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of red Happiness roses.

    The bride's sisters, Jean and Sally Nadeau, were maid of honor and bridesmaid. Mrs. Bryce Dudney and Mrs. Jerry Moylan were brides matrons. All wore taffeta dresses, ballerina-length with wide skirts and fitted bodices. Jean Nadeau wore rust and the others emerald green. Their heart-shaped tiaras and their cascade bouquets were of bronze chrysanthemums and oak leaves.

    Susan and Michael Nadeau, sister and brother of the bride, were candle-lighters. Sondra Burleson, niece of the groom, and David Nadeau, brother of the bride, were flower girl and ring bearer. The girls wore gold taffeta dresses styled like the maid of honor's, and haloes of bronze chrysanthemums and oak leaves. The candlelighter's candle was based in a bouquet. Rose petals filled the flower girl's white lace basket.

    Best man was Bryce Dudney and groomsman was Audrey Eldridge. Clyde McKenzie and Neil McKenzie ushered.

    The reception was given in the Rossville Community Center. Assisting were Mrs. Robert Netson, Mrs. Wayne Clark, Mrs. Emmett Burleson, Mrs. Allen Ross, Mrs. William Olejnik, Mrs. Audrey Eldridge, Geri Gleason, Barbara Jones and Janice McClelland.

    After a short trip Mr. and Mrs. Lister are at home at 619 West 9th.

    The bride is employed by the Topeka Board of Education. The bridegroom, a senior at Washburn University, is employed by the Snyder Jewelry Company.
