Sulik, Mary Ann (Marriage - 5 Sept. 1955) 

Miss Mary Ann Sulik, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sulik, Abbotsford, was given in marriage by her father to Frank Gebert, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gebert of Medford, in a ceremony at St. Bernard’s Catholic church Monday, Sept. 5. Marriage vows were repeated at 9 o’clock in a double ring ceremony read by the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz before the nuptial high mass. 

The bride wore a waltz length gown of nylon tulle over Chantilly lace and heavy satin. The scalloped lace jacket with long sleeves and mandarin collar closed in front with small lace covered buttons. A fitted bodice of pleated tulle and lace topped the scalloped lace hoop skirt. Her finger tip veil of silk illusion was held by a jeweled half hat with double ring sides fashioned of Chantilly lace and tulle and embroidered with sequins and pearls. She carried a bouquet of white and pale pink roses entwined with ivy and satin ribbon centered with an orchid. 

The four bridal attendants were gowned alike in lavender. Their identically styled dresses were waltz-length with net ruffles over very full taffeta skirts. Matching net stoles were worn with the strapless bodices and net was used in their matching head pieces and gauntlets. The dark purple of their shoes was repeated in the color of the carnations that centered the white gladioli used in the cascade bouquets carried by the attendants. 

Serving as maid of honor was Miss Claudette Decker, niece of the bride, of Dorchester, Mrs. Jerry Wildman, sister of the groom, of Wausau; Mrs. John Pinter of Marshfield and Miss Bernette Ellenbecker, both friends of the bride, were bride’s maids. 

Jerry Wildman, brother-in-law of the groom, of Wausau, was best man and groomsmen were Gene Gebert, a cousin, of Stetsonville, Gary Gebert, a brother of the groom, of Medford, and John Pinter, of Marshfield. 

Guests at the church were seated by Frank Decker, brother-in-law of the bride, of Dorchester, and Freddie Gebert, cousin of the groom, of Stetsonville. 

The bride’s mother wore a light gray lace dress over pink taffeta slip and black accessories. A corsage of pink and white roses was pinned at her shoulder. The groom’s mother wore red accessories with a gray dress and had a corsage of red and white roses. 

Following the ceremony, breakfast was served at the home of the bride’s parents. A reception was held at 2 o’clock at the V.F.W. club at Medford where dinner was served at 4:30 to 175 guests. In the evening, the young couple greeted friends at a wedding dance at Memorial Hall, Dorchester. 

Guests at the wedding were from Milwaukee, Superior, Oconomowoc, Chelsea, Marshfield, Wausau, Medford, Curtiss and Abbotsford. 

When Mr. and Mrs. Gebert left on a wedding trip to Minnesota and Canada, she was attired in a two-piece black velvet dress with white accessories. She wore the white orchid from her bridal bouquet pinned to her shoulder. On their return, they will make their home, 718 North 8th Ave., Wausau. The groom, who attended Wausau Vocational School after his separation from the service, is employed as a draftsman in the engineering department of Marathon Corporation. The bride is a graduate of the Dorchester high school and has been employed in the insurance department of the Marshfield clinic.
