Kurasz, Susan Kathleen (Marriage - 17 September 1966)

Miss Susan Kathleen Kurasz and Dennis Zickert exchanged nuptial vows Saturday in St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville. The Rev. Norman Lindloff officiated for the marriage of the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kurasz of Neillsville and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Zickert of rural Neillsville.

The bride chose a floor length sleeveless gown of silk over taffeta styled with an over jacket of lace over taffeta. The jacket was fashioned with a high neckline and long sleeves that tapered at the wrists. The bell skirt was accented with a silk bow at the back waistline. An open crown pillbox held her shoulder length veil. She carried a cascade bridal bouquet.

Mrs. Gerald Emerick of Tigerton was her sister’s matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss Linda Shambaugh of Rockford, Ill., and Miss Linda Zickert, sister of the groom, of Neillsville. The attendants wore street length dresses of apple green peau de soie, complemented with lace over jackets. The dresses were styled similar to that of the bride. They wore matching open green pillbox headpieces and carried bouquets of yellow chrysanthemums in a wheel background.

Franklin Zickert, a brother of the groom, was bestman. Groomsmen were James Redman of Rockford, Ill., and Thomas Kurasz, brother of the bride, of Neillsville. Ushers were Stanley Kurasz and Terry Zickert.

The wedding march was played by Victor Lehmann, and he accompanied Kendall Smith, who sang, “O Perfect Love” and “The Lord’s Prayer”.

Wedding day events consisted of a reception at St. John’s Lutheran School and a dance in the evening.

The bride has been employed in Morrison, Ill., and Mr. Zickert is a TV repairman in Dixon, Ill.
