Kalepp, Jane (Marriage - 28 Dec. 1957) 

Marriage vows between Miss Jane Kalepp, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Kalepp, and John Myre, son of Mr. and Mrs. Elzior Myre, were exchanged Saturday afternoon, Dec. 28. The Rev. Raymond Schulz read the double ring service in St. Bernard’s rectory at 1:30 in the presence of members of the family. 

The bride wore a chapel length gown of Chantilly lace and net. The fitted lace bodice was designed with a square neckline detailed with sequins and long sleeves, and lace buttons closed the back of the bodice. The bouffant skirt had rows of narrow ruffles with a lace over skirt. Her finger tip, illusion veil fell from a low tiara of sequins. 

The holiday motif was carried out in the bouquets of the bride and her attendants, as well as the table decorations at the wedding supper and the home decorations. 

Red roses, white mums, white bells and chains of little, blue beads were used in the bride’s bouquet. 

Attending the couple as maid of honor and best man were Miss Joyce Schraufnagel, friend of the bride, and Russell Myre, brother of the groom. Others in the wedding party were Mr. and Mrs. Russell Myre and Gerry Kalepp and Miss Gladys Kuenzi and Du Wayne Kalepp. 

The bride’s attendants were gowned alike in sleeveless chiffon with very full skirts. They wore rhinestone earrings, gifts of the bride, white fur bandeaus and carried white fur muffs to which sprays of holly and red roses were attached. Green was chosen for the bridesmaids. 

Mrs. Kalepp chose a pink lace dress, with winter white accessories for her daughter’s wedding. Her corsage was of pink roses and white pompons. Mrs. Myre, mother of the groom, wore a toast colored lace dress, accented by a corsage of red roses and white pompons. She wore black accessories. 

Mrs. M. C. Bunnell and Mrs. Adolph Kalepp, grand mothers of the bride, had corsages of pink and white carnations. 

After the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. Dinner was served at 4:00 o’clock at the high school, to 150 guests. In the evening, the new Mr. and Mrs. Myre greeted more friends at a wedding dance at Memorial hall, Dorchester. 

When they left on a short honeymoon trip, Mrs. Myre wore a red wool dress and black accessories. 

Mr. and Mrs. Myre are making their home at Tomahawk where the groom is employed at Nick’s Manufacturing Company and the bride is employed as secretary to Judge John Smith. The groom has recently completed a three year enlistment in the navy and the bride is a graduate of the Abbotsford high school, class of 1957, and prior to her marriage, was employed at Wausau at Employers Mutuals. 

Guests attending the wedding came from Tomahawk, Madison, Milwaukee, Shawano, Colby, Rib Lake, Hazelhurst, Wausau, Fond du Lac, Winneconne, Dorchester, Marshfield, Abbotsford, and Tennessee.
