Gebert, Eunice A. (Marriage - 11 Aug. 1956) 

In St. Anthony’s Catholic church, at Athens, on Saturday, Aug. 11, Miss Eunice A. Gebert, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Gebert, of Stetsonville, became the bride of Vernon E. Mader, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Mader, of Athens. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Frank Brickl, at 2:00 o’clock. 

The bridal gown was fashioned of fine, imported hand clipped rose point lace and nylon tulle over white slipper satin. The molded lace bodice was cut to a small V fitted waistline and a V lace collar, trimmed with sequins and pearls. The long, lace sleeves tapered to points over the wrists where they were fashioned with dainty covered buttons. The waltz-length bouffant skirt, styled with a wide panel of lace down the center at the front and back, was set off with wide tiers of fine crystal pleated tulle to the hemline. 

Her finger tip veil of silk illusion fell from a Juliet cap of lace and tulle trimmed with sequins and pearls. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and white carnations. 

Attending the couple were Miss Vernelle Mader and Melvin Mader, sister and brother of the groom, as maid of honor and best man. Miss Ramona Roeder, friend of the bride, of Wausau, and Carl Hanke, uncle of the groom, of Hamburg, were also in the bridal party. 

The two bridal attendants wore blue, strapless, waltz length dresses with full net ruffled skirts and lace jackets. They carried colonial bouquets of pink and white carnations. 

For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Gebert wore white accessories with a cinnamon colored jacket dress. Mrs. Mader chose a black and white dress with pink accessories. Both mothers pinned corsages of yellow roses and white carnations to the shoulders of their dresses. 

A reception, held at the home of the bride’s parents, was attended by 135 guests. A wedding dance was held at Procknaw’s ballroom, Athens. 

Mr. and Mrs. Mader will make their home in Milwaukee where the groom is employed. Prior to her marriage, the bride was employed as bookkeeper at Wisconsin Public Service.
