Da Mert, Marjorie Joan (Marriage - 23 May 1953) 

Miss Marjorie Joan Da Mert, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Da Mert of Neillsville, and Arthur Lau, son of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Lau of Stratford, were married Saturday, May 23, at 2:30 p.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church at Neillsville with the Rev. Alfred Schewe performing the double ring ceremony.  The church was decorated with white gladioli, ferns and candles. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a dress that featured a bodice of Chantilly lace with long sleeves that came to a point over her wrists with a double net skirt over white taffeta.  A Juliet lace cap trimmed in white pearls and a fingertip veil completed her gown.
