Miss Linda L. Hilber and Thomas E. Degenhardt were married Friday, June 14, in a 7 p.m. ceremony performed at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Colby, by the Rev. Francis Rushman. A reception followed at the Colby VFW Hall.

Parents of the bride are Mr. and Mrs. Alex Hilber, Sr., Colby. Mr. and Mrs. Roman Degenhardt, Rt. 1 Loyal are the groom’s parents.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride appeared in a gown of sheer nylon organza detailed with a square, scalloped neckline and an A-line skirt with an attached chapel train. Clusters of simulated pearls and sequins trimmed the bodice, which was further enhanced by lace accents. Her open crown lace Camelot cap was adorned with pearl beading and satin ribbon side bows. A cluster of white and pink rosebuds formed the bridal bouquet.

Matron of honor Mrs. Relinda Jones, Wausau, friend of the bride, wore a pink taffeta crepe gown with a scalloped neckline and ribbon sash. Bridesmaids Dianne Hilber, Colby, sister of the bride, and Kitty Degenhardt, Loyal, sister of the groom, were dressed in identically styled gowns of light blue taffeta crepe. Each carried a single, long stemmed carnation tinted to match her dress.
