Hilber, Jean Ann (19 SEP 1964)

The wedding of Miss Jean Ann Hilber, Kenosha, and William Loughead, Kenosha, took place at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Colby, on Saturday, Sept. 19, 1964. The Rev. John Pinion officiated.

Parents of the bridal couple are Mr. and Mrs. Leo Hilber of Colby and Mr. and Mrs. William Loughead Sr. of Abbotsford.

The church was decorated in fall astors and gladioli, and the sisters of St. Mary's sang Ave Maria. The bride was given in marriage by her father.

For her wedding, the bride wore a floor length gown of crystal satin with a fitted bodice and full skirt ending in a chapel sweep. Three-quarter length sleeves were embroidered with crystals and pearls, and a petal headpiece held a fingertip veil. She carried a white orchid surrounded by carnations and stephanotis.

Mary Michels of Oshkosh, the bride's cousin, was maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Jerry Jorgensen, Oshkosh, Judy Fike, Milwaukee, and Diane Lemanski, Kenosha. They all wore floor length emerald green gowns, styled with a fitted bodice and floor length skirts. Their headpieces and slippers matched their dresses. They carried bouquets of shaded bronze mums.

Attending the groom were his best man, Michael Hilber, Marshfield, and groomsmen Jerry Jorgensen, Oshkosh, Dennis Foster, Kenosha, and Ken Hembrae, Kenosha.

Karla Johnson, Colby, was the flower girl, and Scott Jorgensen, Oshkosh, was ring bearer.
