Kirn, Marion (Marriage - 20 June 1959)


Miss Marion Kirn, daughter of Martin Kirn and Mrs. John Betz, and Robert Herrick, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Herrick, all of Willard, repeated nuptial vows Saturday in a double ring ceremony performed by the Rev. Aloysius Madic in Holy Family Church, Willard.


The bride, given in marriage by her brother, was attired in a floor-length white nylon organza gown. The very full skirt was fashioned with flying panels appliquéd in French sequined lace.  The fitted bodice, with short sheared sleeves, was fashioned with a sequin studded, scooped neckline.  Her finger-tip veil fell from a sequin studded crown headpiece.  Pink roses and white stephanotis made up her crescent shaped bridal bouquet.


Mrs. Frances Koschak of Waukegan, Ill., was matron of honor. Other aids were Mrs. Florence Popp, Tomah, and Miss Marion Petkovsek, Chicago, bridesmaids.


Donald Kern, brother of the bride, was bestman. Groomsmen were Reinhart Popp, Tomah, and Oliver Smith of St. Paul, Minn.  Donald Petkovsek, Peoria, Ill., and Donald Kirn, Willard, ushered.


Three hundred guests attended the reception in the West Side Hall in Willard.
