Zurakowski, Shirley (20 JUN 1970)

St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Thorp, was the setting for the marriage of Miss Shirley Zurakowski and Gary Gerard Narlock on Saturday, June 20, 1970. Reverend William Matzek performed the 11:00 a.m. ceremony. Miss Susan Keating, as organist, accompanied the Children's Choir.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Zurakowski, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis..), and Mr. and Mrs. Lambert Narlock, Rothschild.

The bride wore a Chantilly gown which formed a scalloped Sabrina neckline bodice. The Victorian pennier skirt revealed a panel down the front trimmed with pearls. The detachable shoulder chapel train was trimmed with Chantilly lace. Her headpiece was a double crown accented with rhinestones and pearls, and long veil. She carried a bouquet of yellow roses and white carnations with lilies of the valley.

Miniature bride was Miss Sharon Zurakowski, sister of the bride, attired the same as the bride, and carried flowers like the bride's bouquet.

Matron of honor was Mrs. James Posda, aunt of the bride. Bridesmaids were Mrs. Ronald Narlock, sister-in-law of the groom; Mrs. Ronald Zurakowski, sister-in-law of the bride; and Mrs. John Babl. They wore a nylon sheer over acetate lined gowns, with puffed short sleeves. The dresses were trimmed with rose patterned lace. The matron of honor wore yellow, and the attendants orchid. All wore headpieces of petals and flowers with short bouffant veils, and carried yellow and orchid carnation bouquets.

Dennis Narlock, brother of the groom, was best man. Groomsmen were Ronald Narlock, brother of the groom; Ronald Zurakowski, brother of the bride; and James Posda, uncle of the bride. Miniature groom was Lambert Narlock II, nephew of the groom. Ushers were Richard Posda and Terry Narlock.

A reception, dinner and dance were held at St. Hedwig's Parish Hall.

After a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin, the couple will reside in Wausau.
