Younker, Kathleen R. (26 OCT 1963)

Marriage vows were repeated in St. Louis Catholic Church at Dorchester between Miss Kathleen Rose Younker and Clayton C. Van Ark, both of Green Bay, Saturday morning, Oct. 26, 1963, at 10 o'clock. The Rev. Gerald Schuh officiated at the ceremony and at the nuptial mass.

Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Leo Younker of Dorchester and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Van Ark of Green Bay.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a street length bridal gown of delustered satin fashioned with a molded basque with round neckline and three-quarter length sleeves. The bell shaped skirt was detailed with a front panel of re-embroidered Alencon lace with seed pearls from the bodice to the hemline. The four-tiered bouffant shoulder length veil was secured to a double tier lace headpiece with a three tier lace drop pearl over the forehead. She carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations.

Attending the bride were her sister, Miss Marcia Younker of Dorchester, as the maid of honor, and Miss Diane Hanson of Green Bay, a friend.

They were attired alike in brocade dresses of peacock blue designed with a Sabrina neckline, three-quarter length sleeves, full short skirt with bows at the bottom of the flat front panel. They wore matching hats with wisp veils.

Gerald Wachsmuth of Owen and Wayne Kaiser of Green Bay completed the wedding party.

Festivities of the wedding day included breakfast at the home of the bride's parents, a 4 o'clock supper at the Legion Hall at Medford and a wedding reception and dance at the Mayville Town Hall.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Van Ark will make their home at 119 1/2 Allard St. Green Bay. The groom has served in the Navy the past two years.
