Ramker, Mary (11 JUL 1964)

Miss Mary Ramker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Max Ramker, Route 1, Colby, and Arlyn Hanne, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Hanne, Route 2, Colby, were united in marriage during a nuptial high mass at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Colby, at 1:30 o'clock Saturday, July 11, 1964. The Rev. Ambrose Blenker was the officiant.

For her matron of honor, the bride chose her sister, Mrs. James Asplund, route 1, Colby, Mrs. William Rachu of Marshfield, Miss Penny Fischer of Riplinger, friends, and Miss Debby Ramker of Colby, another sister, served as bridesmaids. Denise Witte of Colby was flower girl.

Chantilly lace fashioned the floor length bridal gown made with a fitted bodice and jewel trimmed square neckline. The full lace skirt was caught up at the center front and back with roses and revealed tiers of nylon tulle and lace at the hemline. Her fingertip veil was held with crystal droplets and pearls. She carried a bouquet of red roses and white carnations.

Her attendants wore street length dresses of acetate nylon lace over taffeta. A nylon sheer fly-away panel encircled the v-shaped necklines and the bodice dipped to a v at the waists. Crowns of seed pearls held small blusher veils.

Pink was chosen for the matron of honor, who carried a bouquet of pink mums and white carnations. The bridesmaids carried yellow mums and white carnations with their yellow dresses.

James Asplund of Colby was the best man. William Rachu of Marshfield, Allen Schmutzler of Riplinger, and David Syring of Edgar were the groomsmen, and Danny Ramker of Colby was the ring bearer.

Ray Rachu of Unity and Maynard Tramelling of Spencer performed the ushering duties.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Hanne received the congratulations of friends at a reception at Cherokee Hall. The wedding supper was served at St. Mary's gym and in the evening a wedding dance was held at Trianon Ballroom.

The address of the newlyweds is Spencer, where the goom is employed at Spencer Sports Products.
