Gibbs, Marjorie K. (12 JUN 1956)


In a wedding service, conducted Tuesday, June 12, 1956, in Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Stanley, by the Rev. Frank Solveson, Miss Marjorie K. Gibbs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy K. Gibbs, Stanley, became the bride of Thomas W. Qualle.  The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Newell E. Qualle, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).


Attendants for the couple were Mrs. James Hall, matron of honor, a friend of the bride, and A-2c Jerry Phillips, Washington, D.C., best man.  The bridesmaid, Miss Joan Gibbs, sister of the bride, was escorted by James Hall, Stanley.  Ushers who completed the party were John Harycki, Thorp, and Jack Hunger, Madison, friends of the groom, and David Overgaard, the bride’s brother-in-law.


The bridal aids were attired in blue organdy dresses with matching nylon jackets.  Complementing their floor length dresses were pink demure roses in basket effect.


Appliqued on her full length dress of nylon over satin, were tiny flowers which accented the rounded neckline and outline the full side inserts in the skirt.  Matching elbow length mitts completed her outfit, which had short, softly shirred sleeves.  Tiny white flowers were used in her bouquet, and her fingertip veil was secured to a matching tiara headpiece.


A reception was held in the church basement immediately following the ceremony.


The bride, who is a Stanley High School graduate, attended Wis. State College at Eau Claire for one year.  She is employed as a receptionist at Victory Hospital in Stanley.  Her husband, a Thorp High School graduate, is now a junior in the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, where he is a member of Pi Tau Sigma.  The couple will make their home in Madison following a short honeymoon.
