Schjoneman, Janice Marie (Marriage - 14 Oct. 1961)

Miss Janice Marie Schjoneman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Merlin L. Schjoneman of Colby, and William J. Pollack of Chicago, Ill., son of Mrs. Hazel Brooks of Moline, Ill., were united in marriage in Zion Lutheran church last Saturday afternoon at 4:00 o’clock. Bouquets of gladioli and bronze and yellow chrysanthemums decorated the church, Rev. William Christian officiating and Mrs. Howard Rannow sang "The Lord’s Prayer" and "Song of Ruth."

A white satin brocade gown was chosen by the bride for her wedding. It was designed by a scoop neckline, long sleeves and in floor length with a chapel train with matching brocade roses down the back of the skirt and train. A pill box headpiece held her chapel-length veil and she carried yellow roses and white stephanotis in a cascade arrangement.

Mrs. Noel E. Urben attended the bride as her matron of honor with Miss Mary Pollack of Moline, Ill., and Misses Karen and Margo Schjoneman as the bridesmaids.

They wore street-length dresses with moss green satin skirts and velveteen bodices fashioned with short sleeves and portrait necklines and carried bronze Fugi chrysanthemums.

Attending the groom were Gayle Smith of Chicago, best man, and Noel Urben, Allen Schjoneman, and Donald Geske, groomsmen.

A dinner and reception were held following the church services at the Hotel Colby in Colby, Wis.

The groom graduated from the Harrison High School in Chicago in 1957 and worked as a draftsman for the Illinois Bell Telephone Co. He is now a draftsman for the U.S. Air Force.

After a wedding trip to Chicago the young couple will make their home at 2521 E. Johnson St., in Madison, Wis.

Guests attending the wedding came from Moline and Chicago, Ill., Madison, Milwaukee, Watertown, Marshfield, Unity, Abbotsford and Curtiss.
