Pieper, Mary (26 Aug 1961)

In a wedding ceremony Saturday, August 26, at the Trinity Lutheran Church, Mary Lee Pieper became the bride of Gerald Leo Sternitzky of Granton. They were united in marriage by the bride’s uncle, Rev. Frank Pieper of Kimble, South Dakota and Rev. Ganz. The Noeldner sisters sang “Wedding Prayer” and “Lord’s Prayer” and they were accompanied by Jean Noeldner on the organ.

The bride chose a gown of nylon tulle and rose point lace with a scalloped Sabrina neckline. It was styled with tapered sleeves and a fitted basque waistline with a full bouffant skirt accented in the back by tiers of rose point lace and nylon tulle.

Karen Gerke came from West Allis to be the maid of honor and bridesmaids were Rosemary Cherney of Milwaukee, the bride’s cousin, and a cousin of the groom, Mrs. Ralph Reidel of Granton. The bride’s cousin from Kimball, South Dakota, Cheryl Ann Pieper, was the flower girl.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Sternitzky, had Norbert Sternitzky, his cousin from Plymouth, as his best man. Groomsmen were William Ehlers of Greenwood, a cousin of the bride and Ralph Reidel of Granton, a cousin of the groom. The ring bearer was Jeffrey Cherney of Milwaukee.

A reception was held in the church parlors and a dance was given in their honor at the Silver Dome Ballroom in Neillsville.

The new Mrs. Sternitzky is a graduate of Loyal High School & her husband is a graduate of Granton High School. He is employed as a carpenter.

Following a honeymoon trip through Michigan and northern Wisconsin, the couple will make their home in Loyal.
