Decker, Geraldine (13 JUL 1946)

In a nine o’clock ceremony performed at St. Bernard’s Church here, Saturday morning, Father A.M. Muckerheide joined in holy wedlock, Richard Kaz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Kaz, and Geraldine Decker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Decker.

Best man was Ray Kaz, brother of the groom, and Miss Betty Baldeschwiler acted as first bridesmaid.

The bride was beautifully attired in a gown of white ninon with ruffled Italian lace on skirt over satin with wide pleated ruffle. Her fingertip veil was edged with Italian lace and she wore a Queen Mary Headdress of lace. She wore a gold cross set with chipped diamonds, a gift of the groom, and carried a colonial bouquet of yellow and white roses and baby breath.

Other attending couples were Wilfred Vanderhyden Jr. and Eleanor Wnek, Eddie Pelc and Betty Casper, Darel Bernhagen and Elaine Smigaj, and Norman Decker and Betty Hansen.

The bridesmaid all were dressed in white net over nylon sharkskin with ruffled lace and wore matching Queen Mary headdress. They wore gold heart necklaces, gifts of the bride, and carried colonial bouquets
