------ Molinaro, Kay (22 MAY 1965)

Donald Charles Gierl of Kenosha, son of Mr. and Mrs. Morris R. Gierl of Abbotsford, took Miss Kay Dorothy Molinaro, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert P. Molinaro, all of Kenosha, as his bride Saturday, May 22.

The nuptial high mass and exchange of promises took place at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic church at Kenosha at 10 o’clock with Rev. Alexius Noeth, O.S.A, officiating.

For her wedding the bride chose a traditional floor-length and long sleeved gown of bridal sheer over taffeta.  Sequin embroidered Chantilly lace was used to form the scalloped square neckline of the fitted bodice and repeated in the bow detailed front panel of the Chantilly edged bouffant skirt.  Three tiered lace edged ruffles in the back ended in a chapel train.  A matching lace petal caplet with organza roses and lily of the valley sprays head her three-tier bouffant cage veil.  Feathered white mums and clusters of white butterfly roses and ivy were combined in a cascade arrangement for the bridal bouquet.

Mrs. Mark Molinaro of Kenosha, sister-in-law of the bride, served as matron of honor.  Miss Kathleen Wade of Milwaukee, a cousin, and Miss Jane Hasslinger of Kenosha were the bridesmaids.

Mark Molinaro, brother of the bride, and David Gierl of Abbotsford, brother of the groom, seated the guest at the church among whom were the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Morris Gierl, and Dick and Mrs. Richard Wagner of Abbotsford.

Mr. Gierl, a graduate of the Abbotsford high school, is employed at American Motors in Kenosha.  His bride is a secretary at the same firm.

Mr. and Mrs. Gierl will make their home at 7029 Twenty-sixth Ave., Kenosha.  A belated honeymoon will be taken to California in late July.
