Kalepp, Shirley Mae (5 MAY 1962)


Miss Shirley Mae Kalepp and Richard D. Schlice exchanged marriage vows Saturday afternoon at Christ Lutheran Church.  The double ring ceremony was performed at 2 o’clock with the Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiating.  Miss Dorothy Kieser and Mrs. Weldon Brown Jr. sang "O, Perfect Love" and "O Promise Me."  Miss Kieser was also the organist.


Mr. and Mrs. William Kalepp at the parents of the bride.  The groom is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Schlice.


For her wedding, the bride chose a floor length long sleeved gown of Chantilly lace styled with a sweetheart neckline trimmed with sequins and pearls.  The fitted bodice came to a V in the front.  The full hoop skirt of lace over taffeta was detailed with diamond inserts of nylon tulle embellished in sequins and pearls.  A crown of sequins and pearls held the French illusion veil.  She carried a crescent arrangement of red roses, gardenias and lily of the valley.


Attending the bride as maid of honor was her sister, Miss Ruth Kalepp of Marshfield.  Another sister, Mrs. Floyd Stargardt, also of Marshfield, Mrs. Robert E. Lee of Wis. Rapids, a sister of the groom, and Miss Gertrude Rueth of Loyal, a friend of the bride, were the bridesmaids.  They were attired in street length dresses made alike in green, pink, blue and yellow silk organza.  They were designed with lace bodices, cap sleeves and square necklines.  The full skirts set off with a cummerbund at the waist and a bow in the back.  They all wore flower clip headpieces with a face veil.  They carried fan shaped bouquets of contrasting colors.


Miss Kathy Lee of Wis. Rapids, a nice of the groom, was the flower girl.  She was dressed like the bride and carried a similar bouquet.


Gary Stargardt of Marshfield, a nephew of the bride, was the ring bearer.


James Volney of Milwaukee was the best man for his uncle.  The groomsmen were Donald and Kenneth Kalepp of Abbotsford, brothers of the bride, and Robert Lee of Wis. Rapids, a brother-in-law of the groom.  Lavern Kalepp of Abbotsford, a brother of the bride, and Wayne Schlice of Stevens Point, a nephew of the groom, performed the ushering duties.


The bride’s mother was attired in a beige dress with brown accessories, and the groom’s foster mother, Mrs. Parker of Stevens Point, wore a blue dress.  Both had corsages of green, pink, blue and yellow roses.  The bride’s grandmothers, Mrs. Frank Schulz, wore a beige dress, and Mrs. Adolph Kalepp, wore a navy blue dress.  Both grandmothers had corsages of yellow carnations.


Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the village hall and supper was served at the church basement.  In the evening the new Mr. and Mrs. Schlice greeted friends at a wedding dance at the Eagle’s Club, Marshfield, and later left on a honeymoon trip to southern Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.


After May 13, they will be at home to friends at 622 N. Ash St., Marshfield.  The bride, a 1957 graduate of the Abbotsford High School, was employed at the A.H. Weinbrenner Co. at Marshfield.  The groom attended school at Wis. Rapids and is a salesman for Duralum Construction Co.


About 135 guests attended the wedding and were from Abbotsford, Dorchester, Marshfield, Wis. Rapids, Milwaukee, Stevens Point, Loyal, Colby, Medford, Marathon and Tomahawk.
