Nacker, Sheila (Marriage - 26 May 1973)

Marriage vows were pledged May 26 at Christ Lutheran Church, Abbotsford, by Miss Sheila Nacker and Dale Hoernke. The Rev. Kenneth Loehrke officiated at the ceremony which joined the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nacker, Rt. 1 Colby, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence (Jake) Hoernke, Rt. 2 Colby.

For her wedding, the bride chose an empire-style gown of imported organza featuring bishop sleeves and a mandarin neckline. Venise lace embellished the A-line silhouette sweeping into a chapel train, and lace bordered the chapel mantilla of sheer bridal illusion secured by a petal cluster. She carried a bouquet of red roses, white carnations and lilies of the valley accented with rose buds on white satin streamers as she was presented in marriage by her father.

Mrs. Mark Carpenter was the matron of honor and Miss Patsy Kaser, Kenosha and Mrs. David Hoernke were bridesmaids. Their identically-styled gowns in pastel shade of mint, apricot and maize were complimented by matching colonial bouquets.

Mark Carpenter served as bestman. Groomsmen were Douglas Nacker and David Hoernke. Rick Podevels and Glen Cole acted as ushers.

A wedding reception was held at the Trianon ballroom.

The new Mrs. Hoernke is a 1972 graduate of Colby High School and has completed her freshman year at the University of Wisconsin-Marathon campus at Wausau. Her husband also graduated from Colby High School in 1972; he is employed at Colby as a licensed cheesemaker. The newlyweds are living on Rt. 1 Unity.
