Miss Elizabeth Yochis Is Bride Of Roman Mersberger
In Immaculate Conception church at 9 a.m., Saturday, Miss Elizabeth Yochis,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Yochis, 220 S. Fifteenth street, became the
bride of Roman Mersberger, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Mersberger, 1906 N.
Twelfth street. The Rev. James Shlikas read the double ring ceremony and
pink gladiolus, candles and a profusion of greens decorated the altar.
The bride, given in marriage by her father, was gowned in a princess styled
white brocaded satin dress with a train and with clusters of pearls at the
neckline. She wore a tulle veil, the crown of which was studded with pearls
and fastened with orange blossoms and carried a bouquet of white Kilarney
roses and freesias.
Attending as maid of honor was Miss Ann Yochis, sister of the bride, attired
in a sky blue moire taffeta gown. Her flowers were a bouquet of Briarcliff
roses. The bridesmaids were Miss Veronica Yochis, who wore a peacock blue
taffeta dress and Miss Magdalen Yochis, dressed in a dusty rose taffeta gown.
The bridesmaids carried arm bouquets of mixed flowers and all the attendants
wore floral headbands. Peter Norris was the best man and Sylvester
Mersberger and Wilfred Juckem were the groomsmen.
Mrs. A. Zupancich, Jr., played the bridal march on the organ.
A breakfast at the home of the bridegroom's parents followed the ceremony and
a dinner was given at Kneevers' hotel for the immediate families. A supper
was given at the "99" hall for 100 guests after which a reception was held.
Out-of-town guests from Marion, Ind.; Fond du Lac, Chilton and Oostburg
Having returned from a short honeymoon, the bride and bridegroom are making
their home at 1906 N. Twelfth street.
