Meihak, Lorraine (Marriage - 14 June 1958) 

The Zion American Lutheran Church of Pine Valley was the scene Saturday of the wedding of Miss Lorraine Meihak of Rt. 3, Neillsville, and Wendell Storm of Sheboygan, whose parents are Mr. and Mrs. William Meihak of Neillsville and Mr. and Mrs. Carl Storm of Granton. The Rev. Marvin Beninga performed the double ring ceremony at 2:30 p.m. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, approached the altar in a gown designed by her sister, Margaret Rockwood.  It was fashioned with lace over satin, with alternating tiers of lace and net extending from waist to a chapel length train. The fitted bodice was fashioned with long tapered sleeves that buttoned at the wrists and a fingertip veil cascaded from a pearl head piece. She carried a white orchid surrounded by lily-of-the-valley and ivy. 

The groom’s sister, Mrs. Delores Gaier, was her matron-of-honor.  Miss Dorothy Ackerman, a friend, and Miss Annette Durst, a cousin, were her bridesmaids. 

The Misses Jeanene Rockwood and Carol Buettner, nieces, were junior bridesmaids.  Their dresses also were designed by Mrs. Rockwood. 

"Because" and "The Lord’s Prayer" were sung by Janice Greeler, Delores Zipfel and Lucille Tyler, accompanied by Ronald Gluch, Jr. 

Jerome Gaier attended his brother-in-law as best man.  Groomsmen were Roger Meihak, a brother of the bride, and Erland Greeler, a cousin of the groom.  Ushers were Dale Meihak and Ronald Greeler. 

Following the ceremony a reception for 150 guests was held at the Meihak home.  

On their return from a wedding trip to Niagara Falls, N. Y., Mr. and Mrs. Storm will reside at 520 Wisconsin Ave., Sheboygan, where the groom is employed as a draftsman.  The bride a graduate of the Neillsville High School, has been employed in Port Edwards.
