Duellman, Bonnie Lou (Marriage - 1969)

Miss Bonnie Lou Duellman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Duellman of Dorchester and Neal Franklin Block, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Block of Rt. 1, Dorchester, were married Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in a double-ring ceremony before 200 guests in St. Louis Catholic Church in Dorchester. The Rev. Gerald officiated.

The bride given in marriage by her father wore a traditional bridal gown of all-rose point lace-over-taffeta, styled with a molded bodice and featuring g a scalloped neckline and long sleeves tapering at the wrists. The bouffant skirt, softly shirred at the natural waistline, was divided over wide tiers of lace with scalloped borders. The detachable Watteau train extended from the shoulders into a full, circular chapel sweep, outlined with scalloped border lace, and trimmed with the same. The bouffant veil of imported silk illusion was secured to a dainty pearl and crystal crown. Her flowers were a combination of hot pink roses, lily-of-the-valley, white carnations and three white orchids.

Mrs. Lee (Nancy) Noland of Medford, sister of the groom, was matron-of-honor. Mrs. Russel (Barb) Block, of Wausau, sister-in-law of the groom, was bridesmaid. Both wore candy pink floor-length, empire-styled gowns with rounded neckline on chiffon coat-styled tops that featured long, puffed sleeves. Their matching headpieces were trimmed in pearls from which fell a short bouffant veil. Hot pink roses, white carnations and lily-of-the-valley formed their bouquets.

Lee Noland of Medford, brother-in-law of the groom, served as bestman and Daniel Duellman of Dorchester, brother of the bride, was groomsman. Bill Weldon of Stetsonville and Russel Block of Wausau were ushers.

The Sebold sisters of Dorchester sang accompanied at the organ by Karen Sebold.

A wedding reception was held at Dorchester Memorial Hall followed by a dance with 200 guests attending. Pink and white streamers decorated the tables.

After a trip to Wisconsin Dells, they are residing in Dorchester.

Mrs. Block attended Dor-Abby High School, Abbotsford, and has been employed in Marshfield. Mr. Block attended Dorchester High School and is employed with a pipeline construction company.
