Poziombke, Cheryl Ann (Marriage - 30 October 1971)

Miss Cheryl Ann Poziombke and Michael Lee Dumas exchanged wedding vows Saturday, October 30, at 11 a.m. in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Neillsville. The Rev. Charles D. Brady officiated at the double-ring ceremony performed before approximately 100 guests. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Alex Poziombke of Rt. 1 Neillsville, and Mr. and Mr. Edward Dumas of Marshfield.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an empire-styled gown of silk peau accented with Venetian lace at the waist line and at the cuffs of the long, puffed sleeves. Her matching cathedral length mantilla was edged in Venetian lace. She carried a single, long-stemmed red rose.

Matron of honor was Mrs. Jerome Poziombke of Bloomer. Miss Linda Strozewski, Marshfield, and Mrs. Thomas Poziombke, Anchorage, Ak., were the bridesmaids. Their ruby velvet, empire-styled gowns were fashioned with bishop sleeves and trimmed with gold braid. Each carried a single white rose in a setting of red carnations, trimmed with a gold velvet ribbon.

Bestman was John Nesser, Stevens Point. Terry Behrens, Milwaukee, and Gerald Fitzgerald, Tomah, were the groomsmen. Joseph Tasse, Madison, and Donald Dieringer, Milwaukee, served as ushers.

Mrs. Coletta Short was the organist.

A receptionist for approximately 300 guests was held at Bali Hai Supper club, where decorations included white candles in a setting of lilies of the valley.

The bride, who graduated from Neillsville High School in 1967, has been employed as a medical assistant in Marshfield. The groom, a 1964 graduate of Columbus High School, Marshfield, and a 1968 graduate of St. Norbert’s College DePere, is employed as a clinical bio-chemist at a Marshfield research foundation. He also spent a year in graduate school at the University of Georgia.

The newlyweds will live in Marshfield upon their return from a wedding trip in the southern states.
