Stryk, Adeline (3 NOV 1945)

At two o’clock Saturday afternoon, Nov. 3rd, 1945, a pretty wedding was solemnized at the Grace Evangelical Church in Chicago, when Adeline Stryk, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Malin Stryk of Lublin, exchanged vows with Pfc. Jos. F. Dedina Jr. of Fort Sheridan, Ill., son of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Dedina of Gary, Ind. Rev. Edward Henniger, pastor of the church, officiating.

The bride was lovely in her heavy ivory satin gown styled with a sweetheart neck liner, long pointed sleeves and full skirt falling into a train. The beaded design at the waist matched her tiara from which fell her long veil of illusion. Her veil was outlined with looped satin piping and ended with two rows of ruffles. She wore a gold cross, a gift of the groom. Her flowers were a semi-cascade bouquet of white roses with orchids in the center and streamers of white satin ribbons.

Her attendants were: Dorothy Dedina, sister of the groom, as maid of honor, and her two sisters, Patsy and Elvera, as bridesmaids. They wore sheer, billowy gowns fashioned with bishop sleeves, sweetheart necklines gathered bodices and full skirts. The maid of honor wore pink and the bridesmaids aqua-blue. They wore matching blushers which fell from tiaras of plumes and carried bouquets of deep pink roses with satin bows matching their gowns. Pearl necklaces completed their ensembles.

Ushers, friends of the groom, were Eddie Samay of Gary, Ind. And Pvt. W. Reinker of Ft. Sheridan, Ill.

As the guests were gathering in the church a few solos were rendered by the organist. While the bride’s and groom’s mothers were being ushered to their places "At Dawning" was rendered by the soloist.

To the strains of Lohengrin’s bridal march, the bride, who was given away by her father, was preceded down the white carpeted aisle to the altar by her three attendants. "Because" was sung after the exchanging of vows and Mendelssohn’s march was played for the recessional.

A supper and reception was held at the Norden Hall for 170 guests in the evening.

The bride’s mother wore black and the groom’s mother brown, each with matching accessories. They were corsages of pink roses and white pompoms.

Out of town guests were: Mrs. Frank Kulwiec of Medford; Otto Bishop of Ladysmith; Elsie Rohland of Withee; T. Sgt. Al Rohland of Camp Shelby, Miss.; Cpl Emil Rohland of Salina, Kansas; Pete Porchnik, of San Francisco, Calif.; Shirley band Bea Kush of Naperville, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. W. Kulwiec of Northlake Village, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. E. Samay of Gary, Ind.; Mr. and Mrs. J. Forkas of Gary, Ind.
