Block, Joan (Marriage - 20 Sept. 1958) 

Miss Joan Block and Ray Miller, Jr., exchanged marriage vows Saturday at 1:30 o’clock at St. John’s Lutheran church, Riplinger. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Harold Block and Mr. and Mrs. Ray Miller, Colby. Mr. Block gave his daughter in marriage.  

For her wedding, the bride wore a gown of Chantilly lace over satin with a full ruffled skirt ending in a cathedral train. The lace bodice featured long sleeves and a modified Sabrina neckline.  

A lace hat detailed with seed pearls and iridescent sequins held her silk illusion veil. She carried a heart shaped bouquet of purple orchids, yellow roses and white carnations.  

Cotillion blue in nylon sheer and net over taffeta were worn by her attendants. Seed pearls trimmed their braided crowns with matching veils and yellow, white and blue carnations were combined in their bouquets.  

Miss Janice Kussow was maid of honor; Mrs. John Block and Miss Annette Miller were bridesmaids.  

Jerold Block, best man, Jerome Kasper and John Block, groomsmen, and Henry Zitler and Marvin Busse completed the party.  

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, followed by supper in the church hall. In the evening, the now Mr. and Mrs. Miller greeted friends at a wedding dance at Kolby Park. 

Following a wedding trip to the Black Hills, and California, they will make their home on a farm near Colby.
