Lukowicz, Jane (Marriage - 6 June 1950)

Miss Jane Lukowicz, daughter of Mrs. Ida Lukowicz, became the bride of Duane Baumgart, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Baumgart of Owen, in a double-ring ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Colby Tuesday morning, June 6th, Rev. N. B. Beschta officiating at the nuptials and celebrated the mass which followed.

The bride, wearing a gown of heavy ivory slipper satin, approached the altar on the arm of her older brother, John, and carried a colonial bouquet of pink roses and lilies of the valley with long white streamers. Her bridal gown was accented with tiny satin buttons down the front, a lace appliquéd yoke and Peter Pan collar and long sleeves ending in points at the wrists. The full skirt had a band of appliquéd lace at the hipline and extended into a long train, Juliet cap of woven strips of tulle accented with seed pearls, secured her finger-tip veil of illusion.

The bride’s niece, Dianne La Fond of West DePere, served as junior bridesmaid in a taffeta gown of blush pink, which was fashioned with fitted bodice, short sleeves and a wide scalloped collar outlining the low neckline. The bouffant skirt over a white net hoop skirt, was caught at the hemline with clusters of pink roses and she wore a coronet of tulle and roses. Her colonial bouquet of roses was tied with wide blue streamers. She wore pink lace mitts.

Miss Evelyn Andrew as maid of honor, and Mrs. Edward Chamberlain of Marshfield, as bridesmaid, wore identical gowns of light blue marquisette made with wide lace accenting the deep yoke and apron effect on the full skirts. They carried colonial bouquets of pink roses with wide pink streamers and wore picture hats of blue marquisette and lace, and half mitts of marquisette.

The groom was attended by Robert Hemmy and Edward Chamberlain. Ushers were Wilbur Gierl, the bride’s cousin, and Douglas Graham, Owen.

The bride’s mother was present in a brown redingote ensemble and the groom’s mother wore a cocoa brown suit. Both wore corsages of yellow carnations.

A wedding dinner for the immediate family was served at Hotel Robinson, and a reception was held in the afternoon at St. Mary’s gymnasium, followed by a dance in the evening at Walter’s pavilion.

The bride, a graduate of the Colby High School, is employed as telephone operator at the Commonwealth Telephone Co. The groom, a graduate of the Owen High School, served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and is now attending the University Extension School at Wausau.

Following a honeymoon to northern Wisconsin, the young couple will reside in Colby, Wis.
