------ Mantik, Ruby Joan (11 JUN 1966)

After June 25, Mr. and Mrs. Emery Peissig, who are on a honeymoon trip through the Black Hills, S. Dak., will be at home in Casper, Wyo., where Mr. Peissig is employed as field engineer for Land Well Oil Co.

The marriage of Miss Ruby Joan Mantik, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mantik of route 1, Abbotsford, and Emery Don Peissig, son of Mr. and Mrs. Emery Peissig of Curtiss, took place Saturday, June 11.  Officiating at the 1:30 o’clock ceremony were the Rev. Roger Tellock and Mr. James Neiderloh, student pastor.  Mrs. Kenneth Reckner of Marshfield was the organist and Mrs. Archie Abbott of Menomonie was the soloist.

The bride was attired in a gown of bonded crepe detailed with lace on the edge of the above elbow length sleeves and the fitted midriff and standing band collar.  The two yard train which began above the midriff band was trimmed with border lace.  Her bouffant veil was secured to a pearl petal headpiece.  She carried a bouquet of Fugi mums with ivy and two vines of blue and purple grapes.

For her maid of honor the bride chose her sister, Miss Sally Mantik of Abbotsford.  Another sister, Mrs. Jack Armstrong of Park Falls and a sister of the groom, Mrs. James Neiderloh of Minneapolis, served as bridesmaids.

They wore two-piece floor length dresses of sky blue bonded crepe.  The bodices were designed with slightly lowered neckline and closed at the back with covered buttons and loops.

Miss Pammela Mantik, a niece, who served as flower girl, wore a blue short dress with empire waist and cap sleeves.

Blue and orchid Fugi mums were combined with ivy to make up the bouquets carried by the attendants.

Rock Allen Mantik of Edgar, a nephew of the bride, was ring bearer, and Casey Sylln of Whitehall, a friend of the groom, was the best man.

Dennis Laabs of Curtiss, another friend, and Gerald Mantik of Edgar, a brother of the bride, were the groomsmen.

Bruce Armstrong of Madison, brother-in-law of the bride, and Peter Nelson of Red Oak, Ia., a cousin of the groom, seated the guests who came from Los Angeles, Calif., St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minn., Red Oak, Ia., Eau Claire, Menomonie, Whitehall, Chippewa Falls, Park Falls, Green Lake, Madison, Wausau, Medford, Athens, Colby, Marshfield, Unity, Dorchester, Hamburg, Owen, Withee, Abbotsford, Milan and Curtiss.

About 250 guests attended the reception which followed in the church parlors.

Both the bride and groom are graduates of the Abbotsford high school and the bride is a 1966 graduate of Stout state university, Menomonie, and will teach home economics.  Her husband was graduated from Wisconsin state university, Eau Claire, in 1965, and was graduated this year from the Oklahoma state university at Stillwater, Okla.
