Lew, Shirley A. (18 DEC 1965)

Miss Shirley Adelina Lew, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Lew, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Michael R. Kelley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo L. Kelley, Snoqualmie, Wash., on Saturday, Dec. 18, 1965 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen. Father H.L. Crubel performed the 11:30 a.m. wedding ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a full length gown of silk peau with A-line front and full back with cathedral train. The bodice was trimmed with pearls. Her veil was secured to a cluster of fabric roses trimmed with pearls and crystals and she carried a cascade bouquet of pink roses with white button pomps and variegated holly.

Miss Theresa Wilczek was maid of honor and Mrs. Wayne Yocum was bridesmaid, both wearing floor length gowns of chiffon over taffeta in azelua with A-line skirts featuring a Watteau train in back. Their headpieces were roses with matching circular veils and each carried crescent bouquets of white poinsettias with holly.

Best man was Wayne Yocum and groomsman Walter G. Lew. Ushers were: Alvin Graski and Kenneth Slowiak

A dinner and reception were held at the Owen Meadowview Country Club.

The bride is a 1958 graduate of Owen-Withee High School and was employed as a paying and receiving teller with First American National Bank, Wausau. The groom is a 1959 graduate of Mt. Si High School, Snoqualmie, Wash., and is an IBM tab operator with Standard Oil in Seattle, Wash.

After a wedding trip to southern Wisconsin, the new couple will make their home in Seattle, Wash.
