Grammer, Beverly (Marriage - 28 Dec. 1954) 

Miss Beverly Grammer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Grammer, of Colby, and A-3C Clyde Peissig, son of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Peissig, of Dorchester, exchanged marriage vows, Tuesday morning, at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Colby. The Rev. V. E. Schwartz read the double ring ceremony at 9:00 o’clock, followed by a nuptial high mass. 

The bride, presented in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of white net over satin. The bodice, with its long sleeves, was made of lace with net yoke. Her lace edged veil was held by a tiara of mother of pearl. She carried a lover’s knot bouquet of white satin ribbon and garnet roses. 

Miss Mary Dona Grammer was her sister’s maid of honor. Miss Idelle Bowen, Curtiss, and Miss Marilyn Peissig, Chippewa Falls, cousins of the groom, were bridesmaids. They were all dressed alike in floor length gowns of bright red designed with tiered skirts of nylon net and velvet jackets. In their hair, they wore an arrangement of holly leaves and red berries. They all carried crescent shaped bouquets of white pompons with dark green satin ribbons. 

Attending the groom was Valarion Marciniak, of Antigo, and Dale Bowen and Jimmy Peissig, of Curtiss, cousins of the groom. 

Mrs. Grammer, mother of the bride, wore a gray suit and black accessories, accented by a corsage of red roses. Mrs. Peissig, mother of the groom, chose a mauve dress with black accessories and a corsage of pink roses. 

Following the ceremony, a wedding breakfast for the bridal party was served at the bride’s home. A reception was held in the afternoon and in the evening the bridal couple greeted friends at a wedding dance at Memorial hall, Dorchester. 

Guests from away at the wedding were from Chippewa Falls, Merrill, Oregon, Marshfield, Athens, Greenwood, Wausau, Medford, and Minneapolis. 

Both young people are graduates of the Abbotsford high school. The groom is stationed at Scott Field, Belleville, Ill., and the bride is employed at Wausau at Employers Mutuals Insurance office.
