Gehrke, Alice (3 APR 1965)

Married during an 8 o’clock wedding ceremony, Saturday evening, April 3, 1865, at the Christian and Missionary Alliance church in Owen, were Miss Alice Gehrke, Wausau, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Gehrke, Withee, and Robert Siggelkow, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Siggelkow, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.). Mr. Gehrke gave his daughter in marriage.

Officiating at the nuptials was the Rev. Arnold Woodring, with Mrs. Woodring singing “O Perfect Love” and Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us.” Easter lilies graced the altar.

Schiffli embroidered organza was used to fashion the bridal gown, which had a molded bodice styled with bateau neckline and bell-shaped skirt softly shirred at the waistline, also enhance with Schiffli embroidery.

Her fingertip veil of silk illusion was caught to a jeweled scalloped queen’s crown of rhinestones, and she carried a bouquet of red roses interspersed with white stephanotis.

The matron of honor, Mrs. Kenneth Langholl, Milwaukee, donned a floor length gown with a mint green scooped bodice and tied at the waistline with a bow. The white skirt was bell shaped. Her headpiece matched her ensemble and she carried an arrangement of white daisies.

Charles Siggelkow, Milwaukee, was best man.

Following the church ceremony, a dinner and reception were held at the Woodland Hotel in Owen for members of the immediate families. The newlyweds then left on a wedding trip to San Antonio, Tex., where the bridegroom presently is stationed with the U.S. Army.

Mrs. Siggelkow, who was employed by Employers Mutual of Wausau, was graduated in 1962 from Owen-Withee High School.

Her husband, who was graduated from the same high school a year earlier, will resume his employment with the Harley Davidson Co. in Milwaukee after his discharge from service.
