Kaldunski, Marjorie (Marriage - 21 Sept. 1957) 

The Rev. F. Diers read the marriage ceremony which united his nephew, Sylvester Diers, and Miss Marjorie Kaldunski in marriage. Vows were exchanged at 9:30 Saturday morning at St. Anthony’s Catholic church, Athens, before a nuptial high mass. 

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Kaldunski, of Athens, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Diers, Route 2, Athens. 

The bride wore a beautiful gown of rose point lace over lustrous satin. The fitted bodice had a yoke of nylon tulle with a rolled collar trimmed with seed pearls and iridescent sequins. The long, lace sleeves tapered over the wrists in points. The full skirt had tiers of lace extending into a long train, which was later bustled. Her imported French silk illusion veil cascaded to her finger tips from a crown trimmed with seed pearls and sequins. She carried a cascade bouquet of red roses and white chrysanthemums, interspersed with trailing ivy. 

Her four attendants were dressed alike in Nile green nylon. They wore lace jackets over the gathered net bodices and rows of ruffles detailed the bottom of the full lace skirt. In their hair, they wore matching tiaras made of horsehair braid. Green satin bows tied their cascade bouquets of yellow and white chrysanthemums. 

Attending the bride were Miss Patricia Bollech, of Athens, friend of the bride, as maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss Virginia Diers, Minneapolis, sister of the groom; Miss Virginia Stencil, Marshfield, cousin of the bride, and Miss Marlene Amacher, of Colby, cousin of the groom. 

Miss Mary Jane Hargraves, Wausau, was the miniature bride at her aunt’s wedding. She carried a miniature cascade bouquet of yellow and white chrysanthemums, tied with white satin. 

Daniel Kaldunski, of Athens, brother of the bride, was best man. Others attending the groom were Jack Plumb, Minneapolis, friend of the groom; Elmer Kaldunski, Athens, brother of the bride, and Elroy Diers, Athens, brother of the groom. 

Ushers were James Gierl, Athens, and Norman Diers, Athens, brother of the groom. 

Pink garnet roses and white carnations were combined with silver ribbon for the corsages, worn by the mothers and pink and white carnations were used for the grand mothers. 

A wedding breakfast and supper at 4:30 were served in the school hall. In the afternoon, at 2:00 o’clock, a wedding reception was held at Trianon ball room. Here the new Mr. and Mrs. Diers also greeted friends at a wedding dance from 8:00 to 12:00 o’clock. 

Mr. and Mrs. Diers left on a honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin and after Sept. 29 will be at home to friends in Abbotsford where the groom is employed at Wyman’s Red Owl Store. Before her marriage, the bride was employed at Marathon Rubber Products, at Wausau. 

Guests attending the wedding came from Ohio, Chicago, Minneapolis, Marshfield, Wausau, Mosinee, Stratford, Edgar, Athens, and Abbotsford.
