Johnson, Iris #2 (1 JUL 1950)

At a nuptial ceremony performed at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Evangelical Lutheran Church, Curtiss, Miss Iris Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Johnson, Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Earl Schiszik, son of Mrs. Ida Schiszik, Curtiss, with the Rev. Otis Odland performing the ceremony.

For her wedding, the bride chose a costume of white embroidered organdy eyelet over satin. Her fingertip veil of silk illusion fell from a headdress and she carried a cascade bouquet of white and red roses.

Miss Doris Klemetson, cousin of the groom, as maid of honor, was gowned in a dress of white embroidered eyelet over blue taffeta. She carried a bouquet of blue gladioli.

Glenn Schour, brother-in-law of the bride, was the best man, and Victor Borgemoen, cousin of the groom, was the groomsman.

Lionel Schiszik, Chicago, brother of the groom, and Lyle Johnson, brother of the bride, ushered for the wedding.

After the ceremony, a reception was held in the church hall for 150 guests.

The bride, a graduate of Abbotsford High School, is employed at the Post Office at Curtiss.

When they return from a honeymoon in southern Wisconsin, the couple will reside on the groom’s farm near Curtiss.

Out of town guests at the wedding came from Green Bay, Chicago, Abbotsford, Duluth, Greenwood, Wausau, Colby and Bluffton, Ind.
