Unger Janet (18 SEP 1965)

Miss Janet Unger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Unger, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), was united in marriage to Melvin J. Skaleski, son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Skaleski of Green Bay on Saturday, Sept. 18th, 1965 at 11:30 a.m. nuptial High Mass. Father H.L. Crubel performed the ceremony in the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen, before an altar decorated with white gladioli and garden flowers.

The bride was given in marriage by her father and the children’s choir of the church rendered the music.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor length sheath of satin brocade with feathered long sleeves and a chapel train. Her three tiered bouffant veil was attached to a rose headpiece. Her bridal bouquet was a cascade arrangement of a white orchid, white feathered chrysanthemums and white stephanotis.

Miss Catherine Sambs, cousin of the bride, of Menomonee Falls served as maid of honor, with Miss Mary Zarnke, Milwaukee, Miss Mary Ann Walsh, Green Bay, Miss Sandra Emmerson, Minneapolis, Minn., and Mrs. Suzanne Jeskewitz, Green Bay, bridesmaids.

Junior bridesmaid was Miss Mary Ann Unger, the bride’s sister.

Their floor length sheaths were identical with rust velveteen empire waists and beige crepe skirt waists. Rust cabbage rose headpieces in matching velveteen enhanced the dresses and they carried cascade arrangement of bronze and yellow chrysanthemums.

Attendants of the groom were Myron Skaleski, best man, and groomsmen were Victor Skaleski, Robert Skaleski, and Dennis Skaleski, all of Green Bay, and Nestor Skaleski of Beaver Dam, all brothers of the groom.

Robert Carlson and James Wittig, both of Green Bay, had charge of seating the wedding guests.

A breakfast for the wedding party and immediate families was served after the ceremony, and a reception was held at the Meadowview Country Club, Owen, at four o’clock in the afternoon.

The new Mrs. Skaleski teaches English and Frnech in the Howard-Suamico school district of Green Bay. She is a graduate of Wis. State University of Eau Claire and was affiliated with the Delta Zeta Sorority. Mrs. Skaleski is a sales representative for the National Biscuit Co. and attended the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay Center.
