Treankler, Darlyne J. (27 JUN 1955)


On the wedding anniversary of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Treankler, Abbotsford, Darlyne Jule Treankler became the bride of Pvt Donald R. Haralson, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Haralson, Sr., Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).  The Rev. Raymond Schultz officiated at the repeating of the marriage vows on Monday, June 27th, 1955.


The bride’s gown had a fitted bodice of Chantilly lace over satin with a net yoke topped with a lace mandarin collar and long sleeves which came to points over the hands.  The bodice closed down the back with tiny lace covered buttons.  The floor length skirt of fully gathered nylon net over satin was highlighted with lace panels running throughout the skirt.  A fingertip length veil of nylon tulle was attached to an open crown with sequin and seed pearl trim.  The bridal bouquet had a white orchid center surrounded with pink Garnet roses and white feathered carnations.


All three bridal attendants were gowned alike in floor length dresses of nylon net over taffeta which formed tiers down the entire skirt.  The fitted strapless bodices were of lace over taffeta with matching lace capes.  The matron of honor, Mrs. Allen Stange, Loyal, a sister of the bride, and the bridesmaids, Miss Joyce Schraufnagel, Abbotsford, and Vergene Treankler, Stratford, both cousins of the bride, wore matching headbands of blue and white feathered carnations.  The matron of honor carried a bouquet of white carnations tied with pink ribbons, and the bridal aides carried cascade bouquets of pink and white carnations tied with white ribbons.


Little Gloria Schraufnagel, Neillsville, a cousin of the bride, was the miniature bride in a replica of the bridal gown and carrying a small bridal bouquet of pink roses and white carnations.  Another cousin of the bride, Pat Schraufnagel, Colby, was ring bearer.


The bride’s brother, Dwight Treankler, Abbotsford, was best man for his brother-in-law.  Allen Stange, Loyal, a brother-in-law of the bride, and Phillip Lukowicz, Owen, a friend of the groom, were groomsmen.


The bride’s mother attended the wedding in a blue and white print nylon dress with black accessories,  and the groom’s mother chose a pink print dress with white accessories.  They both had corsages of pink Garnet roses and white feather carnations tied with silver ribbons pinned at their shoulder lines.


A supper for the bridal party and their guests was served in the Abbotsford High School gymnasium at 5 o’clock.  The day’s festivities were climaxed with a wedding dance at Colby Park.


The bride is a graduate of Abbotsford High School and the groom received his diploma from Owen High School.  She is employed in the office of the Lewis Container Co., Colby, and her husband is stationed at Fort Devens, Mass., with the U.S. Army.


The newlyweds are enjoying a northern Wisconsin honeymoon, after which he will return to his duties at Fort Devens.  She will remain at the home of her parents until housing arrangements can be made at his base.


Guests for the wedding came from Wausau, Stratford, Edgar, Neillsville, Loyal, Black River Falls, Owen, Colby, Michigan, Athens and Chicago.
