Scheelk, Joyce Ardith (Marriage - 12 June 1958)

Miss Joyce Ardith Scheelk, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Scheelk of Colby, Wis. and Albert R. Ashbeck, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Ashbeck, were united in marriage Thursday afternoon in the Zion Lutheran church in Colby, Wis., Rev. William R. Christian reading the marriage ceremony. She was escorted down the aisle by her father. Esther Rannow of Colby provided music for the ceremony and for the soloist, Robert Cleworth of Wis. Rapids.

The bride was attired in a floor-length gown of embroidered nylon topped with a princess-style bodice and Sabrina neckline. The tiered skirt was edged with embroidered nylon and her finger-tip veil was caught to a crown of seed pearls. Her cascade bouquet consisted of red roses and lily of the valley.

Bonnie Jean Scheelk, the bride’s sister, attended as maid of honor with Evelyn Aderhold of Wabeno and Beverly Fieck of Green Bay as bridesmaids. They wore full-skirted gowns of glitter net over taffeta. The fitted bodices were accented with taffeta sashes which were tied in the back with bows. Cascades of white daisies and red roses complemented the varying shades of blue in the gowns.

The groom was attended by Thomas Ashbeck of Wabeno as best man with John Anderson of Laona and Edwin Ashbeck of Wabeno as groomsmen. Ushers were Carl Ashbeck and Walter Schlafke, both of Wabeno.

After the ceremony, a reception was held at the Unity Community Hall followed by a dance. Dinner was served in the parish hall.

The bride attended school at Central State college at Stevens Point where she was affiliated with the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. She has been recently employed at the Wabeno Joint School District. The groom is a graduate of Wabeno High School and is employed as a construction worker in Green Bay. Following a wedding trip, the couple will make their home in West DePere.
