Wepfer, Barbara Joan (Marriage - 3 February 1962)


Miss Barbara Joan Wepfer of Chicago, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Wepfer of Loyal, became the bride of Allen Lewis Quast of Whitewater at a nuptial high mass performed last Saturday noon in St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Whitewater. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. James Johnson.


The bride was attired in a traditional gown of ivory dulcette satin, fashioned with a gently-scooped neckline and long, tapered sleeves. The bodice and front panel of the skirt were enhanced by seed pearl embroidery in a rose design, and the un-pressed pleats expanded into a chapel train. A matching pillbox of tucked satin was brightened with seed pearls, and a miniature rose above her tiered ballerina veil of silk illusion.  She carried a cascade of white roses and stephanotis with green ivy.


The maid of honor was Miss Judy Wichman of Eau Claire; bridesmaid was Mrs. Glen Sisson of West Allis, a sister of the groom; while Linda Sisson, also of West Allis, was the flower girl.


Thomas Wepfer of Loyal, brother of the bride, was bestman; and groomsman was Glen Sisson of West Allis. Robert Quast, Sparta, a cousin of the groom, and Gerald Passer of Milton Junction, a friend, were ushers.


A dinner and reception were held in St. Patrick’s church hall following the service.


The newlyweds will be at home on Rt. 3, Whitewater, following a wedding trip to Florida.


The bride studied at the University of Wisconsin, and was graduated from the Ray-Vogue School of Professional Arts in Chicago.


The groom is a graduate of Greenwood High School, and is employed by a Whitewater dairy.
