Weber Pauline A. (23 AUG 1961)


Miss Pauline Ann Weber and James Michael Schiferl exchanged marriage vows in a double ring ceremony performed by the Rev. Gerald F. Schuh in St. Louis Catholic Church, Dorchester, Wednesday, Aug. 23, 1961, at 10 a.m.  A solemn nuptial high mass followed, at which the Rev. Schuh was celebrant, the rev. John F. Agnew, chaplain of St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, deacon, and the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz, pastor of St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Abbotsford, sub-deacon.


Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Joseph M. Weber and Mr. and Mrs. Felix Schiferl, all of Dorchester.


The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown of satin and lace designed with a tulle lace bodice.  Long tapered sleeves and a scalloped neckline trimmed with pearls and sequins.  An overskirt of lace was used over a ruffled net skirt which was detailed with ruffles in the back.  Her fingertip veil was attached to a crown of pearls and aurora borealis crystals.  Red roses and white stephanotis, intertwined with ivy, were arranged in a cascade bouquet.


Miss Bonnie Stewart of Thorp, a classmate of the bride at St. Joseph’s School of Nursing, Marshfield, was maid of honor.  Miss Janet Schiferl of Madison and Miss Kathleen Weber of Dorchester, sisters of the bridal couple, were bridesmaids.  They wore identically styled street length dresses of nylon chiffon.  They were designed with shirred bodices and softly draped necklines and full unpressed pleated skirts.


Miss Stewart’s frock was yellow and the bridesmaids were aqua.  They wore small matching headpieces and carried crescent shaped bouquets of aqua and yellow pompons with sprigs of fern.


Robert Straub of Milwaukee was the best man, and James Weber of Colby and Duane Liazuk of Stanley, were groomsmen.  Cletus Weber of Dorchester and Robert Riazuk of Gilman seated the guests.


Festivities of the wedding day included a breakfast and reception at the home of the bride’s parents.  Dinner was served at the parish hall and in the evening, a wedding dance was held at Memorial Hall.


On their return from a honeymoon trip to the west coast, the new Mr. and Mrs. Schiferl will make their home in Abbotsford in the upstairs apartment of the Mrs. Christina Johnson house on N. Fourth Street.  Both young people are graduates of the Dorchester High School and Mrs. Schiferl is a 1961 graduate of St. Joseph’s School of Nursing, Marshfield.


Mr. Schiferl is employed as office and sales clerk for Christensen Sales Corp. in Abbotsford.
