Description

Alvin and Leona (Conklin) Prizler pause for a picture on their way down the church aisle during their wedding. Alvin wears a dark suit. Leona has her arm in his, and wears a white wedding gown, veil, and pearls. A bouquet of flowers is held in her other hand. Their wedding, which took place on October 2, 1951, was the last to be performed in the old church building, used for Evangelical Free Church services. The building was later renovated in 1953 and served as the Coralville City Hall until 1974.

Leona (Conklin) Prizler was born on October 11, 1920 to Loran Kohl and Mary Elizabeth (Hipp) Conklin in Coralville, Iowa. She worked at Koser's Grocery Store.

Alvin Prizler was born May 6, 1913 to Frank and Mary (Martin) Prizler. After marrying, Alvin and Leona lived on a farm near Oxford, Iowa, where Alvin owned a shop called Al's Standard Service.

Alvin passed away on November 3, 1989. Leona followed him in death on December 29, 1998 (Ancestry Library; Lovetinsky et al., p. 38, 97).
