Langreck, Joan (Marriage - 25 August 1955) 

Upon their return from a wedding trip to an undisclosed location the new Mr. and Mrs. Dale Duane Fitzmaurice will make their home at 111 W. Blodgett St. in Marshfield.  They repeated their marriage vows in St. Mary’s Catholic Church on Thursday morning prior to a nuptial high mass.  The Rev. Fr. Peter J. Leketas officiated at the double ring ceremony. 

The bride, Joan Langreck, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Langreck of R 4, Neillsville, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Fitzmaurice of Humbird. 

As the bride approached the altar on the arm of her father she was attired in a floor-length gown of Nylon net over satin with two tiers of net.  Highlighting the skirt was a lace peplum. The fitted bodice, trimmed with sequins and pearls, was fashioned with a mandarin collar.  Her finger-tip veil, which was edged in lace, was fastened to a small headpiece.  Stephanotis, white and pink roses made up her crescent-shaped bouquet.  

Miss Joyce Langreck of S. Maple Ave. Marshfield was her sister’s maid of honor.  The two bridesmaids were Mrs. William Wilkinson of Beloit, niece of the groom, and Miss Pat Bornbach of Rozellville. 

Fred Dux attended his cousin as best man.  Groomsmen were Duane Jinkerson of Worthington, Minn., and LaMarr Hardwick of Neillsville.  Delbert Langreck, brother of the bride, and Donald Eisburner of Humbird attended to the ushering duties at the church. 

Diane and Paul Michaels of Alma Center, niece and nephew of the groom were the miniature bride and groom. 

Following the marriage ceremony a breakfast was served at the home of the bride’s parents and a dinner was served at noon to members of the immediate families.  A reception was held at the American Legion Hall in the afternoon.  In the evening a wedding dance was held at the Silver Dome. 

The bride, who is employed in Marshfield, is a graduate of the Neillsville High School. The groom is a graduate of the Fairchild High School and is a lineman for the Western Union Telephone and Telegraph Co.
