    The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a wedding dress of chantilly lace and tulle, ballerina length. The fitted bodice of lace was fashioned with an illusion yoke and Queen Anne collar of lace. The long, lace sleeves, tapered to points over the hands. A deep lace peplum accented the full tulle skirt. Her two-tier wedding veil feel from a crown of pearlized orange blossoms. She carried a lace-covered prayer book with a glamelia corsage.

    Mrs. Larry Schumacker was matron of honor for her sister. Bridesmaids were Darlene Ann Davis and Barbara Ann Dechand. Their dresses of chiffon taffeta were designed with fitted bodices, scoop necklines, short cap sleeves and side panels of shirring forming deep pouffs on the skirts. The matron of honor wore scarlet, the bridesmaids, emerald green. They wore matching velvet calots with wide tulle brims and carried white carnations with streamers matching their dresses.

    Larry Schumaker of St. Marys was best man. Vincent Martinek, brother of the bride, and Jack Homan, were groomsmen. Ushers were Gerald Perry and Edward Humston.

    A breakfast followed the ceremony. Later there was a reception in the Rossville Community Center. Assisting were Mrs. Ted Dolezilek, Mrs. Dee Young, Mrs. Edward Rafferty, Mrs. DeVere Miller, Mrs. Clarence Smith, Mrs. Robert Whitley and Mrs. Paul Wilson.
