Siemek, Sharon Marlene (19 SEP 1970)

Miss Sharon Marlene Siemek, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Max Siemek, became the bride of John Joseph Erl, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe A. Erl, on Saturday, September 19, 1970 at Zion Lutheran Church, Gilman. Reverend Edwin Jording performed the two p.m. marriage ceremony.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose an empire styled floor length gown with lace over bridal satin, styled with scoop neckline, long full sleeves and a long train attached at the waist with a bow. Her fingertip veil was held together by a crown of crystal and pearl dew drops, and she carried a bridal bouquet of white carnations and pink roses.

Mrs. Eileen Grunseth was her sister's matron of honor, and bridesmaid and junior bridesmaid were the groom's sisters, Sharon (same name as bride?) and Donna Erl. They wore empire styled, floor length shrimp colored gowns featuring lace over the bodice, long full sleeves made of lace, and satin skirts. Net attached to a bow made of satin and lace constituted their headpieces, and each carried colonial bouquets of white carnations centered with pink carnations.

Jerome Dassow, friend of the groom, was best man, and groomsman was Leslie Siemek, brother of the bride, and junior best man was Lindy Siemek, also a brother of the bride.

A dinner for 200 guests was held at four p.m. at Koolmo's Ballroom, Gilman, where a dance was also held.

The bride attended Gilman High School and the groom Medford High School.

After a wedding trip to norther parts of Wisconsin and Northern Michigan, they will make their home in Medford, where the groom is a window and door manufacturer.
