Parker, Sally (12 APR 1950)

The Holy Rosary Catholic Church of this city was the scene of a lovely wedding ceremony Wednesday, April 12th, 1950, when Miss Sally Parker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William nelson, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Kenneth Speich, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Speich, Greenwood (Clark Co.). The Rev. Raymond Bornbach officiated at the nuptial service.

The attractive bride wore a gown of white nylon sheer over a blue taffeta slip, fashioned with a Peter Pan collar, and ballerina skirt. Blue sandals and a blue taffeta cloche with a light blue net veil and white flowers completed her costume.

She carried a bouquet of nine gardenias surrounded by blue carnations and lily petals.

Attending her were Mrs. Robert Speich, Greenwood, matron of honor and Miss Lorraine Watson, Withee, bridesmaid. Both wore gowns of yellow taffeta made with ballerina skirts, yellow taffeta beanies with short net veils and gardenias at the side. They carried bouquets of gardenias, surrounded by yellow tea roses and lily petals.

The groom was attended by Robert Speich, Greenwood, best man, and groomsman, Robert Vesel, also of Greenwood.

At one o’clock a dinner was served at the Owen Community Hall, followed by a reception at three o’clock. That evening a wedding dance was held at Merry Ol’ Gardens, Withee.

After a short wedding trip, the couple will make their home at Greenwood, where Mr. Speich is associated with the Speich Auto Sales.
