Hiles, Marcia Ione (Marriage - 16 October 1954) 

Miss Marcia Ione Hiles, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hiles of Granton, chose Saturday afternoon, October 16, for her marriage to Tilman Ralph Erickson, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Erickson. The double ring ceremony was performed at 2 :00 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church, Granton, by the Rev. John H. Jacklin. 

The bride wore a gown of Chantilly lace over satin. The strapless fitted bodice was complete with a matching lace jacket and long pointed sleeves that came to points over the hands and a Peter Pan collar. The skirt was of waltz length nylon tulle over satin.  The skirt had a large lace band throughout the center from which flowed tiny pleated tulle.  Her veil of imported silk illusion was fastened to a lace over satin shell cap which was trimmed with sequins and pearls.  Her bouquet was a single white orchid surrounded by sweetheart roses and stephanotis. 

Miss Dorothy Hiles, of Whitewater, sister of the bride, was her maid of honor.  The bridesmaids were Miss Alice Erickson, Marshfield, Carolyn Mae Zahradka, Eau Claire, and Miss Marlene Katzenberger of Marshfield. 

The groom was attended by his brother, Harold Erickson of Janesville, as best man.  Ronald Schlinsog, Harold Stauffacher and Walter Stauffacher were his groomsmen.  James Hiles and Verlyn Erickson ushered.   

A reception for approximately 100 guests was held in the church parlors. Classmates of the bride waited on the tables. They were Misses Janet Winter, Shirley Larson, Carol Jean Garbisch, Marjorie Paun, Bernice Schilling, Eleanor Marek and Donna Schlinsog.  The three tiered wedding cake, which was the center decorations on the bride’s table, was made by Mrs. Victor Braatz and Mrs. Emil Schlinsog. 

The bride is a graduate of the Granton High School, class of 1954, and is employed in the office of the Weinbrenner Shoe Co., at Marshfield.  The groom was graduated in 1952 from the Granton High School and is employed at the Roddis Plywood Co., Marshfield. 

A dance was held in the evening at the Country Ballroom after which the young couple left on a wedding trip to Michigan. 

After their return from their trip they will make their home at 1306 W. Arnold St. Marshfield.
