Skaleski, Irene (20 SEP 1947)

On Sept. 20th, 1947, the Notre Dame Church of Chippewa Falls, Wis., was the scene of the double ring ceremony which united Irene Skaleski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Skaleski, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Donald White, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. White, Chippewa Falls, in holy matrimony. Father Muellen officiated.

The bride, who was given away by her father, was simply attired in a steel grey suit with pink accessories. Her corsage was composed of white gardenias and white roses.

The couple was attended by Robert Rada, friend of the groom, and Marilyn White, sister of the groom; and Barney Roytek, cousin of the bride, and Ramona Skaleski, sister of the bride. Miss Skaleski wore a teal suit with white accessories, and Miss White a grey suit with powder blue. Their corsages consisted of gardenias and roses.

The groom gifted his attendants with tie clips, while the bridesmaids wore double stranded rhinestone bracelets from the bride.

Both mothers wore black suits and wore yellow rose corsages.

Following the ceremony a dinner was served to approximately 50 relatives at Marion Sciezor’s Hall north of Thorp. Twenty-five guests were present for supper, and a free wedding dance was given in the evening. Another dance was given in honor of the couple at the Crystal Palace Ballroom at Bateman on Sept. 23rd.

The groom is employed at the Standard Oil Co. in Chippewa Falls, and the bride is a former employee of the Blue Moon Foods, Inc., at Thorp. The happy couple will now reside at their home on Lake Wissota.

Those who attended from out of town were Mrs. John Solarz and son John, and Mrs. Helen Leja, of Chicago.
