Wiersig, Cheryl J. (Marriage - 1 June 1968)

Cheryl J. Wiersig, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Wiersig of Rt. 1 Unity, and Jack E. Boss, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl H. Boss of Rt. 1, Colby, exchanged nuptial vows Saturday in a 7 p.m. candlelight ceremony in Zion Lutheran Church in Colby, performed by the Rev. David Pankow.

Songs were sung by Julene Radlinger, who was accompanied at the organ by Ronald Boss. White lilacs and lilies-of-the-valley graced the altar.

The bride, escorted by her father into the church, chose for her wedding a floor-length gown of Chantilly lace-over-faille taffeta enhanced in the back by a full circular chapel train extending from the shoulders. The bodice featured bell sleeves and was outlined with scalloped lace. A satin headpiece held her bouffant illusion shoulder-length veil. She carried a cascade arrangement of stephanotis and lilies-of-the-valley, centered with a white orchid and with ribbon streamers falling from the bouquet.

Her maid-of-honor was Miss Gloria Wenzel of Marshfield. Bridesmaids were Miss Nancy Kops of Madison and Miss Linda Wiersig of Unity. They wore identical maize floor-length gowns of chiffon-over-taffeta, with empire bodices, appliqu├ęd trim, and semi-mock chiffon coats with full cage backs. Each carried a floral cascade of pale yellow and white carnations and lilies-of-the-valley, with ribbon streamers.

James Schmidt of Loyal was bestman, while Dennis Boss of Milwaukee and Woodrow Wiedenhoeft of Colby served as groomsmen. Ushers were Greg Sebold of Dorchester and Richard Caralfi of Stratford.

The bride, a graduate of Colby High, also attended Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire. She has been doing office work in Dorchester. The groom, a 1964 graduate of Colby High School, was graduated last month from Wisconsin State University-River Falls. He is engaged in farming on Rt. 1 Colby, where they are making their home.
