The Rev. Norbert King officiated at the nuptial Mass.

As the bride was given in marriage by her father, she wore a gown of net over satin styled with a lace bodice, a Sabrina neckline, long lace sleeves and full skirt. Her veil was finger tip length. She carried a cascade bouquet of pink roses and stephanotis.

Matron of honor was Mrs. Arthur Gregory, Watertown, who wore a pink gown fashioned by a chiffon bodice and a skirt of lace over taffeta. Bridesmaids were Miss Nan jean Ebert, Loyal, Miss Betty Peterson, Milwaukee, and Miss Sue Demuth, Milwaukee. They wore dresses similar to the matron of honor’s in pale blue.
