Kralcik, Elizabeth (Marriage - 26 Apr. 1947)

In St. Thomas Catholic church at Milan Saturday morning, in a nuptial mass celebrated by the Rev. Raymond Schulz, Miss Elizabeth Kralcik, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Kralcik, town of Johnson, became the bride of Ben Miller, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Miller, town of Rietbrock. Mrs. Werner Schaefer was organist.

Miss Margaret Kralcik, sister of the bride, attended as maid of honor; the Misses Clara Mroczenski, Athens, cousin of the bridegroom, Lorraine Pfeffer, Edgar, and Delores Miller, sister of the bridegroom, were bridesmaids, and Kathleen Ann Potts of Wausau, little niece of the bride, was flower girl.

Two rows of scalloped lace bordered her full-length veil, which was worn with a tiara of seed pearls and bugle beads. Her only jewelry was a lavalier, a gift of the bridegroom, and she carried a bouquet of pink roses and white carnations.

Her mother chose for the ceremony a brown flowered crepe dress, while the bridegroom’s mother was dressed in black. Both had shoulder bouquets of roses and carnations.

Streamers of white, blue, pink and yellow decorated the home of the bride’s parents, where about 100 guests were entertained at a reception. At the church, bouquets of gladioli were placed on the altar. A dance in honor of the couple was given at Trianon Gardens in the evening.
