Fitzel, Marilyn A.E. #2 (30 SEP 1961)


Marriage vows were exchanged between Miss Marilyn Ann Eleanor Fitzel and Mannon E. Gustafson Saturday evening at 6:30 in a candlelight ceremony at the First United Church of Christ, Colby.  The Rev. Victor Grossbuesch performed the ceremony, during which Herbert Juneau of Abbotsford sang "Wedding Prayer" and "O Promise Me."


Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Adam Fitzel of Colby and Mr. and Mrs. Hilmer Gustafson of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.).


The bride wore a street length dress of white brocade with a bell sheath skirt.  A demure jacket with three-quarter length sleeves covered the sleeveless bodice, accented by shoulder bows.  She wore a corsage of red roses and feathered pink carnations.


Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Gustafson of Colby.


The matron of honor was attired in a coral taffeta street length dress with a bell pleated skirt.  Tailored bows detailed the front of the short sleeved fitted bodice, which was designed with a bateau neckline.  Fall mums made up her corsage.


Mrs. Fitzel wore a blue sheath dress with a jacket that featured three-quart length sleeves and a matching fur collar.  The groom’s mother wore a gray dress with a packed? and matching accessories.


Both mothers had corsages of pink and white carnations.


Following the ceremony, supper was served at the church hall and a reception was held at Cherokee Hall.


The new Mr. and Mrs. Gustafson will make their home in Colby.  The bride is employed by General Telephone Co., and the groom is an employee of the Freeport Silo Co.


Guests at the wedding came from Illinois, Sheboygan, Owen, Withee, Curtiss, Elkhart Lake, New Holstein, Marshfield and Stratford.
