The maid of honor was Miss Grace Neubecker, Neillsville, and Miss Susan Wedekind, Neillsville and Miss Pamela Ritter, Chili, the bridesmaids.

The aides donned floor-length formals with bateau necklines on Bodices of lace over taffeta, empire waistlines accenting the sheath skirts of crepe chiara complimented in back by lace watteau panels and bow trim.
