Ochek, Sally (Marriage - 8 OCT 1938)

In St. Mary’s Church, Greenwood, Miss Sally Ochek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Ochek of Thorp became the bride of Everett Eppers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Eppers of Stanley, Saturday morning at 8:30 o’clock.

A solemn nuptial high mass was sung for the bridal couple by the Rev. J. Novak, pastor. He was assisted by the Rev. William Daniels, Cashton, as deacon, and the Rev. Joseph Biegler, Neillsville, as sub deacon. Other priests present in the sanctuary were the Rev. Charles Brady, Abbotsford; the Rev. J. L. Lang, Colby; the Rev. A. Zinthefer, Loyal; and the Rev. Ansel Murn and the Rev. Marsalle Marinsek, Willard.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white transparent velvet gown designed on princess lines. Her finger tip veil of white tulle was worn over her face until after the exchange of their marriage vows. She carried an arm bouquet of white flowers.

Leading the bridal procession to the strains of Lohengrin’s wedding march was the matron-of-honor, Mrs. E. LeDue, Eau Claire, a sister of the bride. Her gown was of pink chiffon, floor length. She wore silver slippers, a headband (unreadable) flowers and carried a bouquet of mixed flowers.

The bridesmaids were Miss Helen Ochek of Thorp, sister of the bride, and Miss Hazel Eppers of Stanley, sister of the groom. Both wore taffeta frocks, floor length, in blue and green respectively with flowered headbands. They wore silver slippers and carried bouquets of mixed flowers.

Kenneth Eppers, of Stanley, was his brother’s only attendant.

During the ceremony Mrs. Clarence Dolan of Abbotsford sang an "Ave Maria."

After the mass, a wedding breakfast was served to the bridal party at the parsonage. Dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents with covers laid for 70. Blue, green, pink and white streamers of crepe paper and fall flowers decorated the home.

In the evening a wedding dance was given at Black River Tourist Park, Withee.

Mr. and Mrs. Eppers are making their home in Stanley, where the groom is engaged in farming.
