Mr. and Mrs. Frank Siegworth, since Monday, are at home at 2121A N. 8th St.,
following a week spent in northern Wisconsin. The couple's wedding day was
June 14, and Miss Ruth L. Nickel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William C. Nickel,
1709 N. 7th St., was the bride.
The nuptial mass in Holy Name Church at 11 a.m. had the Rev. Harold C.
Petronis as celebrant and it was sung by the Rev. Anthony J. Knackert, who
also had several solos.
Lace and net tulle were materials of the bridal gown, made with a double
skirt of the latter fabric. Long sleeves and a Peter Pan collar were other
details. The illusion veil of fingertip length was attached to a lace cap
with pearls and orange blossoms on the sides. White delphinium and
stephanotis has a cluster of red roses in the center and ivy afforded color
contrast in the bridal bouquet.
Three sisters of the bride had roles of matron of honor, bridesmaid and
junior bridesmaid, namely, Mrs. Richard Butzen, Mrs. Ronald Henning and
Judith Nickel. Yellow dresses with lace bodices, which had cap sleeves and
Peter Pan collars and double-net skirts over taffeta were worn by the first
two persons listed. There were wide sashes of matching taffeta. Lace-mitt
covered hands held colonial bouquets of white delphinium with clusters of
deep purple gladioli in the center and similar flowers adorned their hair.
Blue was the color of the similarly fashioned gown of the other attendant.
All dresses were ballerina length. An all-pink bouquet of delphinium and
gladioli was carried by the youngest sister.
In addition to the best man, John Siegworth, the bridegroom's brother, there
was a groomsman, Ronald Henning, brother-in-law of the bride, and two ushers,
Jerome Heisdorf, the bridegroom's cousin, and Henry Stawski, uncle of the
Breakfast was served at the home of the bride for a small group, dinner at
the Grand Hotel for 30 guests and a reception for 200 relatives and friends
at Knights of Pythias Hall. Persons present from beyond Sheboygan and
Manitowoc Counties were Walter Nickel, Washington, D.C.; Mr. and Mrs. Ed.
Weigand, Mr. and Mrs. George Peterson, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Baartz, Mr. and
Mrs. James McLaughlin and family, Miss Audrey Siegworth, Milwaukee; Miss
