Vandehey, Marie (16 OCT 1937)

Marie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Vandehey, town of Worden (Clark Co., Wis.), and Michael J. Kowieski, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kowieski of the town of Withee (Clark Co.), were united in marriage at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church at Thorp Saturday morning, Oct. 16th, 1937, at 9 o’clock. Rev. A.M. Muckerheide performed the double ring ceremony.

The bride wore a long white satin gown with a long train and veil, caught in a forget-me-not headband. She carried a shower bouquet of lily of the valley and white roses. The maid of honor was her sister, Ethel Vandehey, who wore a floor length coral peach satin gown, and white satin slippers and accessories to match, and carried a bouquet of token roses and chrysanthemums. The two bridesmaids, her sister, Romilda, and her cousin, Dorothy Huls, each wore aqua marine satin floor length gowns and carried bouquets of briar cliff roses and white chrysanthemums. The groom was attired in a dark blue suit and wore a gardenia. He was attended by his brother, Paul Kowieski, and Donald Vandehey, brother of the bride, who also wore dark blue suits. Each wore a carnation.

Dinner was served at the bride’s home to about 75 guests.

The bride who was employed in Chicago, and the groom who was in business in Lyons, Ill., will now be at home to all their friends on their farm at Thorp, Wis.

Out of town guests who attended the wedding were: Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kowieski, Mrs. Nick Kowieski and Mrs. Stanley Skrzypek, all of Chicago; Louis Twarowski of Chicago, and John Merkle and family, Marshfield.
