Weix, Jacqueline T. (1 JUN 1968)
Miss Jacqueline T. Weix, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Weix of Colby, and Thomas Younker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Younker of Tomahawk, were united in marriage on Saturday, June 1, 1968, at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Colby.
Father John Pinion, pastor of St. Mary's, and Father Michael Mertens officiated at the 1 p.m. ceremony. Music during the ceremony was provided by the parish choir.
The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor length gown of imported re-embroidered schiffli lace over taffeta, fashioned with long sleeves and bateau neckline. A large detachable Watteau train was at the back of the neckline. Borealis crystal tear drops trimmed the dress bodice, and a bouffant veil was attached to a headpiece of borealis crystal and Alencon lace.
She carried a formal cascade of miniature white carnations, a white orchid and ivy.
The matron of honor was Mrs. Donna Habermeyer of Stetsonville, and her bridesmaids were Miss Rose Ann Weix of eau Claire, Miss Nancy Weix of Wausau and Miss Colleen Younker of Tomahawk.
Gerald Younker of Green Bay was the best man, and groomsmen were Clayton Van Ark of Green Bay, John Weix of Colby and Norbert Tomyk of Curtiss.
The flower girl and ring bearer were Beatrice Weix of Colby and Scott Thompson of Racine.
Performing the ushering duties were David Burich of Milwaukee and Danny Thompson of Racine.
Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride's parents at Colby. Supper was served at St. Mary's School, and the evening was spent in dancing at the Dorchester Memorial Hall.
The bride is a graduate of Stevens Point School of Licensed Practical Nursing. The groom is employed at Packer Land Packers at Green Bay.
