Ertl, Jeanette Rose (Marriage - 27 June 1956) 

The Rev. Alfred Hebert witnessed the marriage ceremony and officiated at the nuptial mass Wednesday, June 27, at 9 a.m. in St. Mary’s Catholic church, Auburndale, of Miss Jeanette Rose Ertl and Donald Anthony Pecher. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Ertl, Auburndale and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Pecher, Abbotsford. 

The bride’s floor-length gown was styled with a lace bodice and bouffant skirt. Hand-cut Alencon lace was appliquéd on the sleeves, and a scroll detailed the tulle skirt. A pancake headpiece, with a sparkling border outlining the brim, held the veil of illusion net. Red roses and white carnations made up the bridal bouquet. 

Mrs. Herb Salzman, route 1, Milladore, was her sister’s matron of honor, and Miss Virginia Apfelbeck, Colby and Miss Theresa Grosbier, Auburndale, were bridesmaids. They wore headpieces of braid entwined with iridescent beading, and carried bouquets of carnations. 

The junior bride wore a dress styled like those worn by the other attendants. The top was made of shirred lace and had net ruffles at the neck and shoulders. She wore a matching headpiece. Her partner was Dennis Pecher, Abbotsford, brother of the groom. 

Herbert Salzman, Milladore, brother-in-law of the bride, was best man and Clarence Pecher, Abbotsford, cousin of the groom, and Jerome Ertl, Auburndale, brother of the bride, acted as groomsman. Ushers were Kenneth Ertl, Auburndale, cousin of the bride, and Duane Felzkowski, Athens, cousin of the groom. 

The bride’s mother chose a dress of navy blue eyelet over pink taffeta, accented with pink accessories. 

Guests attended the wedding from Athens, Colby, Abbotsford, Marshfield, Milladore, Merrill, Wausau, Stratford, Spencer, Greenwood, Loyal, Milan, Rozellville, Bakerville, and West Allis. 

The young people will make their home at route 1, Abbotsford, where the groom is engaged in farming.
