Seiler, Shirley (Marriage - 3 June 1959)


Miss Shirley Seiler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Seiler of Sturgeon Bay and Fred Bittorf, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bittorf, Sr., of Egg Harbor, were united in marriage at St. Joseph’s Catholic church, Sturgeon Bay, Saturday, June 3. The Rev. A. J. Koeferl read the ceremony before the nuptial Mass at 9:00 o’clock.


The bride appeared in an all white, floor length dress of crisp Florentine taffeta. The molded empire bodice had a delicate lace insert forming a Sabrina neck line and short cap sleeves. Her finger tip veil of imported silk illusion was held in place by a coronet of pearls and sequins. Red roses, white mums and ivy were arranged in her bouquet.


Miss Carol Graf, a friend, served as maid of honor. Miss Donna Matzke, cousin of the bride, and Mrs. Bernie Bittorf, a sister-in-law of the groom, were bridesmaids.


White embroidered organdy cocktail dresses with bateau necklines and a blue chiffon cummerbund were chosen for the attendants. Their head pieces were bands of blue petals and blue, white and pink mums were combined in their bouquets.


Reginald Bittorf, a brother, was best man. Jerry Seiler, brother of the bride and Bernie Bittorf, another brother of the groom, were ushers.


About 200 guests attended a reception, held at the Nightingale Supper Club. They came from Milwaukee, Clintonville, Green Bay, and other distant places in Wisconsin and from Iowa.


Mr. and Mrs. Bittorf left for a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin and Michigan. After Sept. 1, they will make their home in Abbotsford where Mr. Bittorf teaches in the high school.
