Garbisch, Elsie Irene (Marriage – 17 August 1974)

Marriage vows were exchanged Saturday, August 17, at Zion Lutheran Church, Granton, by Miss Elsie Irene Garbisch and Terry Gene Sischo. The E. W. Schleef officiated at the 2 p.m. ceremony for the daugher of Mrs. Helen Garbisch, Rt. 2 Granton, and the late Frederick Garbisch, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. DeVere Sischo, Rt. 3, Neillsville.

The bride chose a gown of organza and re-embroidered lace styled with a princess bodice with seed pearl trim and featured a high neckline, and bishop sleeves. The empire silhouette was completed by a detachable chapel train edged with lace. Her Camelot headpiece of re-embroidered lace accented with seed pearls held a bouffant veil. She carried a bouquet of orchids, white roses, and stephanotis with ivy as she was presented in marriage by her brother, Ronald Garbisch.

Bridal attendants included Emalyn Tucker, Superior, as maid-of-honor, and Miss Vickie Sischo, Neillsville, Miss Janis Sischo, Eau Claire, Miss Judy Sischo, Neillsville, Mrs. Joseph Felser, Neillsville, and Miss Rhonda Bartsch, Granton, as bridesmaids. Each carried a basket arrangement of daisies and wore daisies in her hair. Their empire style gowns of flocked nylon over rainbow hues of satin were complimented by matching ribbon trim.

The groom was attended by Dennis Sischo, River Falls, as best man, and by Fritz Garbisch, John Garbisch, and Robert Garbisch, Granton, and Steve Christenson, Deronda, and Steve Quast, Sparta as groomsmen. Ushering duties were shared by Rick Tucker, Donald Bartsch, Ron Ormond, and Larry Strangfeld.

Mrs. James Musil was the organist, and Sue Dudei, the soloist.

Wedding day events included a dinner at the church hall, a reception at the home of the bride’s mother, and a dance at the Silver Dome Ballroom.

The new Mrs. Sischo, who is employed in the X-Ray department of the Marshfield Clinic, is a graduate of the Granton High School, and of the Accredited School of Beauty Culture, Eau Claire. Her husband graduated from Neillsville High School and from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture education, and a Master of Science degree in agriculture education. He is employed by a Neillsville firm.

Following their return from a wedding trip to Wisconsin Dells, the couple will live in Granton.
