Shields, Mary (Marriage - 25 Oct. 1958) 

Miss Mary Shields, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. G. G. Shields, of Wisconsin Rapids, and David D. Kurz, son of Mrs. Nora Kurz, exchanged marriage vows in a double ring ceremony Saturday at S.S. Peter and Paul’s Catholic church. The Rt. Rev. Msgr. C. W. Gille witnessed the ceremony at high noon. 

The bride wore a floor length gown of silk peau-de-soi, detailed with embroidered Alencon lace at the neckline and on the hipline accent of the full skirt. A fabric hat held her veil of imported illusion. She carried an orchid with stephanotis on a white prayer book. 

Four friends served as bridal attendants. They were dressed alike in orchid crystallette, designed on princess lines with scoop neck and cap sleeves. Tinted crowns completed their attire. They carried baskets of deep purple and white pompons with metallic cattails and wheat. 

A luncheon was served in the church dining hall and a reception was held in the Palace ballroom. 

The bride attended the Abbotsford schools. The bride and groom are graduates of Lincoln high school, Wisconsin Rapids. Prior to her marriage, she was employed in the sales record department of Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Company, at Port Edwards. 

After Nov. 7, the young couple will live at Hunters Point, as Mr. Kurz, AG2, U.S.N., is stationed aboard the U.S.S. Hancock, CVA-19, with home port, San Francisco, California. 

Attending the wedding from here were Mr. and Mrs. C. T. Dolan and Mrs. Arlyn Brunkhorst.
