Hayes, Phyllis Jean (Marriage - 19 June 1948)

Frederick H. Schwierske, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred J. Schwierske of Colby, and Miss Phyllis Jean Hayes, a kindergarten teacher at the Lincoln school at Cudahy and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarke A. Hayes of Cudahy, exchanged marriage vows in the Cudahy Methodist church Saturday.

Attending the bride were Mrs. Donald Schreck of Cudahy as matron of honor and the Misses Arlene Gall of Cudahy and Helen Bewick of Madison as bridesmaids. Delos Kobs of Dorchester was best man and ushers were Douglas Nicolson and James Wiggins of Cudahy.

The bride was gowned in an old-fashioned hoopskirted gown of dotted Swiss, with high neck and full sleeves edged with lace. A white band ending in sprays of lilies of the valley, held in place the heirloom finger tip veil, worn 57 years ago by the groom’s grandmother, Mrs. Adam Kuentz, and by his mother 33 years ago. She carried a white cascade of roses, centered with an orchid with trails of ivy.

The matron of honor wore a white gown fashioned with fitted bodice of crepe, sweetheart neckline, cap sleeves, and a full chiffon skirt. She carried a cascade of red and white roses with ivy trails and wore a matching floral head piece.

The bridesmaids wore matching white pique gowns with ruffled drop shoulders and full skirts. They carried cascades of red and white roses with ivy trails. Their headdresses were of matching flowers and both wore long white lace mitts.

The couple will reside in Dorchester where Mr. Schwierske, a graduate of Central State Teachers’ College at Stevens Point, is a high school teacher. The bride, a member of Alpha Delta Sigma, is a graduate of Milwaukee State Teachers’ College. The groom was affiliated with Chi Delta Dho while at college.
