Durbin, Marie (9 JUN 1956)


The Withee Methodist Church was the scene of the marriage of Miss Marie Durbin to William Kostick on Saturday, June 9th, 1956.  The Rev. H. Wagner of Owen performed the ceremony for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Home Durbin of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Kostick of Lublin.


The bride chose a gown of white lace over satin.  The fitted bodice was styled in lace with a scoop neckline with long tapering sleeves and her bouffant skirt was floor length.  A scallop edge tiara of seed pearls held her circular waist length veil of pure imported illusion which had a hand rolled edge.  She carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations.


Darlene Brodbeck attended her friend as maid of honor.  Miss Brodbeck wore a ballerina length gown of light green lace over taffeta.  The fitted bodice was topped with lace jacket.  Mary Ann Rudu, cousin of the groom, wore a yellow gown styled identical to that of the maid of honor.  Miss Brodbeck carried a bouquet of red and orange gladiolas and Miss Rudu carried turquoise gladiolas.


Flower girl was the groom’s sister, Virginia Kostick.  She was attired in a yellow glazed taffeta gown with a Bertha collar.  She carried a white basket of white baby mums and red roses.  Eugene Witek, cousin of the groom, served as ring bearer.  He was dressed in navy trousers and white dinner jacket.


Acting as best man was Joseph Kostick, brother of the groom, and Frank Kowalski as groomsmen.


The couple will live in Milwaukee.


Numbered among the guests were friends and relatives from Thorp, Lublin, Milwaukee, Withee, Mukwango, Gilman and Harvey, Ill.
