------ Weiler, Veronica A. (20 MAY 1967)

The Rev. John B. Pinion officiated at St. Mary’s Catholic church, Colby, at a 1 p.m. service uniting Veronica A. Weiler of Milwaukee and Gene C. Krueger of Fort Sheridan, Ill., in marriage.

Parents of the young couple are Mr. and Mrs. Peter Weiler of Colby and Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Krueger of route 1, Colby.

The bride selected a shite linen floor-length bridal gown of A-line styling, trimmed with Venice lace. A linen train fell from the shoulders, and a fitted lifted waistline and three-quarter bell sleeves completed the styling. The dress was trimmed with appliques. She carried a bouquet of white chrysanthemums and ivy greens surrounded a purple orchid.

The new Mrs. Krueger chose her sister, Miss Joan Weiler, as maid of honor, and Faye Krueger, a sister of the groom, and Margaret Molling of Detroit, a friend; were the other bridal attendants.

The maid of honor wore a deep rose satin sleeveless dress with a dart fitted bodice and a floor-length three-gore side gathered skirt. The bridesmaids wore dresses of the same style in a pale pink shade. They wore wrist corsages of pale pink and deep rose carnations.

The groom’s attendants were Stan Brehm of Milwaukee, a friend of the groom, and Glenn Weiler of Wausau, a brother of the bride, and Russell Krueger, a brother of the groom, who is serving with the U.S. army in Hawaii.

Following the ceremony a reception and dance were held at Sportsman’s Park.

Both the bride and groom are graduates of the Colby high school, and the bride also attended Wisconsin state university at Oshkosh.

Mr. Krueger is in the armed services, serving in the army. The bride is employed in Milwaukee as a secretary and bookkeeper, and following a wedding trip to southwestern Wisconsin, they will make their home in Milwaukee.
