Maslowski, Eleanor (19 JUN 1948)

(The Berwyn Life)

Before an altar banked with white gladioli, Miss Eleanor Maslowski and Stanley G. Shafer were pronounced husband and wife at St. Odilo’s Church, Berwyn, Ill., on June 19, 1948. Father Flannery read the 3 p.m. service which united the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Maslowski, 2339 Ridgeland Ave., and son of Mr. and Mrs. George Shafer, 2622 Cuyler Ave., in holy matrimony. Nuptial soloist Mildred Schultz sang the sacred "Mother Beloved" and "Ave Maria".

Entering the church with her father, the bride wore a princess styled gown of white satin designed by herself. It was trimmed with pearls. Her Chantilly lace edged veil fell from beneath a pearl and orange blossom crown. She carried a bouquet of white gladioli with orchid center.

Eleanor was attended by her sister Rosalie as maid of honor and her sister Betty as bridesmaid. Their gowns were of two shades of blue organdy with side bustles extended over fresh gardenias. They wore white Chantilly lace Juliet caps and white gloves, and carried clusters of matching gardenias.

Don Bego attended his cousin as groomsman, and Robert Reznicek, a close friend of the young couple, was the other attendant. The men wore summer tuxedos.

Norbert Maslowski, the bride’s young brother, assisted in the sanctuary as altar boy.

For the wedding the bride’s mother wore a dress of dusty rose while the groom’s mother chose to wear aqua. Both mothers wore attractive white picture hats with white accessories and corsages of American beauty roses.

Two hundred and twenty-five guests attended the reception which was held at Johnson’s Hall. From out of town came, Mr. and Mrs. S. Bego and family of Michigan, Mr. and Mrs. Kizivat, Mr. and Mrs. Knutson, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Malinowski and Leo Malinowski, all of Wisconsin, and Mr. and Mrs. Lang Mayer of Mt. Prospect.

The couple honeymooned for three weeks at the Smoky Mountains, Lookout Mountain and Mammoth Cave. They are now at home with the groom’s parents.
