Peleschak, Katherine (9 JUN 1946)

Miss Katherine Peleschak, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose Peleschak of Lublin, became the bride of Marvin S.

The couple was attended by John L. Piwoni, brother of the groom, and Mary Peleschak, sister of the bride. The latter wore a dress of white net over taffeta with matching blusher.

The bride was beautifully attired in a white brocaded gown of marquisette over satin with long sleeves which came to a point at the wrists, a sweetheart neckline and tight bodice with full skirt ending in a long train.
