----Tipple, Karen Irene (15 AUG 1964)


Miss Karen Irene Tipple, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Tipple, 504 W. Dean Ave., Chicago, Ill, became the bride of Rollo James Everett, Chicago, Ill., in Lake Edge Congregational Church at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, August 15. Mrs. Rollo J. Everett, Almond, and the late Mr. Everett are parents of the bridegroom.

Carrying a handkerchief given to her by her Aunt, Mrs. Fred Mertz of Milwaukee, with her cascade of pink the bride wore a floor-length organza roses and white feathered carnations, gown styled with elbow-length sleeves and a scooped neckline. The skirt was designed with unpressed pleats. Her elbow length veil was held in place by a crystal crown touched with seed pearls.

Miss Susanne Tipple, Madison, was her sister’s honor attendant, and Miss Christine Dyer, 153 Harding St., was bridesmaid. They wore coral organza street-length dresses fashioned with bell skirts and matching organza jackets. Circlets of flowers held their brief veils and they carried cascades of blue, white and yellow daisies.

Assuming the duties of best man was Edward J. Wendt, Chicago, with the bride’s brother James Tipple, Madison, as groomsman. Another brother, Thomas Tipple, Madison and Robert Everett, Chicago Ridge, Ill., ushered.

A reception was held in the fellowship hall of the church, followed by a buffet supper served at the home of the bride’s parents.

The couple will reside in Chicago after a brief Wisconsin honeymoon.

The bride is a graduate of Wisconsin State University of Whitewater with a Bachelor of Education Degree. Her husband received a B.S. Degree from the University of Wisconsin and is employed by Corn Products Co., Argo, Ill., as a chemical engineer.
