Bauer, Mary Jane (Marriage - 17 July 1971)

Miss Mary Jane Bauer became the bride of Steven Mabie on Saturday afternoon, July 17, in a double-ring ceremony performed at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Neillsville by the Rev. Charles D. Brady. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Ralph Bauer of Neillsville and the late Mr. Bauer. Parents of the groom are Mr. and Mrs. Milo Mabie, also of Neillsville.

For her marriage the bride chose a gown of white Sata-peau and ribbon - embroidered lace styled with a high, scalloped neckline, short, pouf sleeves, an A-line skirt, and an attached, coat-effect, and chapel-length train. Her veil was held in place by a profile headpiece of Venice lace with pearl-edged organza petals. She carried a colorful bouquet of mixed flowers as she was given in marriage by Robert R. Robinson of Wisconsin Rapids.

Marton of honor was Kathleen Barth. Constance Marty, Etta Smith and Jeannie Kroll were the bridesmaids. The bridal attendants wore empire - style gowns of pink organza fashioned with bishop sleeves and mandarin necklines. Picture hats of sheer braid highlighted the dome silhouettes. They carried white baskets of pink carnations, mums, purple statice, and baby’s breath.

Kenneth Lindekugel, Wausau, served as bestman. Groomsmen were Mike Bauer, Milwaukee, Robert Czarnik, Chicago, and Merlyn Kroll. Kenneth Short, Jr., and Robert Barth, Jr., acted as ushers.

Amy Holt, Black River Falls, was the flower girl and Jonathan Kroll was the ringbearer. Mrs. Glenn Short was the organist.

A reception honoring the couple was held at the bride’s home. Bali Hai Supper Club was chosen for the wedding dinner and dance.

The bride is a 1970 graduate of Neillsville High School and has been employed as a nursing assistant in a Wisconsin Rapids hospital. Her husband, a graduate of Neillsville High School in 1966 and of Career Academy, Milwaukee, in 1971, is an announcer at the Medford radio station.
