Miss Deborah Marie Clark became the bride of Frank Peter Wargolet, Jr., Saturday, September 18, at 12:30 p.m. in St. Hedwig’s chapel in Thorp. The Rev.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore an empire-waist taffeta gown which featured a stand-up collar, nylon lace overly front panel, lace-edged hemline and butterfly train. An elbow length bouffant veil covered her head. She carried a bouquet of pink tea roses and ivory mums.

Fran Wargolet, Milwaukee, was the maid of honor. Bridesmaid was Christene McMackin, Marengo, Il. The maid of honor and bridesmaid were dressed in identically-styled crepe gowns fashioned with V-shaped necklines and puckered nylon sleeves with sequins with yellow and pink blushers. The colors were yellow and pink, respectively. Each carried a matching bouquet of yellow and white and pink and white miniature mums.

Robert Wargolet, Milwaukee, served a bestman. Groomsman was Alan Rycerz, Cudahy. Dave Losiewicz and Roger Kodl, Cudahy, acted as ushers.

Karen Clark, Thorp, was the flower girl. She wore a floor length blue gown with a blue blusher.

A dinner for 200 guests was served at St. Hedwig’s School basement in Thorp. Emil Kodl and his orchestra provided music for a wedding dance held at Club 73.

The bride, who attended Thorp High School, has been employed in Stanley. Her husband, a 1968 graduate of Thorp High School, is engaged in farming. The newlyweds are living on Rt. 2 Thorp.
