Wilson, Dorothy Ann (Marriage - 23 May 1953) 

Beneath an archway of apple blossoms on the lawn of the home, Miss Dorothy Ann Wilson exchanged marriage vows with Alby Dean Hawks, Saturday afternoon. The Rev. F. H. Sprengler read the double ring ceremony at 1:30 o’clock. 

During the ceremony, the Misses Dorothy and Marilyn Kieser sang "O Perfect Love," and "The Lord Is My Shepherd." 

For the occasion, the bride and her two attendants wore suits alike of linen, and white hats. The bride chose a white suit, accented by a corsage of red roses. Miss Norma Jean Wilson, sister of the bride, the maid of honor, wore a yellow suit and Miss Shirley Arlene Hawks, sister of the groom, the bridesmaid, wore an aqua suit. Their corsages were of pink and white carnations. 

Donald Koerner, Dorchester, a friend of the groom, was best man and Daniel H. Lewis, Spencer, a cousin of the groom, was usher. 

Immediately after the ceremony, a reception was held at the home and was attended by guests from Chicago, Waukegan, and Highland Park, Ill., Calumet City and Allouex, Mich., and Fond du Lac, Spencer, Abbotsford, Owen, Thorp, Curtiss, Withee, Bruce, and Dorchester. 

When Mr. and Mrs. Hawks return from a wedding trip, they will be at home in the upstairs apartment at the home of his grand mother, Mrs. Myra Hawks, on Highway 13. 

Both the bride and groom are graduates of the Abbotsford high school and the groom is also a graduate of the Taylor County Normal. He will be principal at the Curtiss State Graded School and the bride is employed at the Curtiss State Bank. 

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Lily M. Wilson, Abbotsford, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Allan Hawks, of Curtiss.
