Skillman, son of Mrs. Joyce Hidy and the late Mr. Skillman of Livingston. The double-ring sacred ceremony was performed by the Rev. Clarence Loewen.

A yellow and white color theme was carried out in the church decoration for the affair. Organist was Miss Ruth Wilson and vocalists were the Misses Kathy Stewart and Karen De Vies.

Serving as ushers were Dan Seelye, Kalispell, and Art Orr, Bigfork.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor-length, long-sleeved gown of her own creation. Organza ruffles trimmed the high neckline, the front length of the gown and the long train. Satin buttons accented the full length of the dress. Her shoulder-length veil fell from a headpiece of clustered flowers. She carried a bouquet of daisies and white roses.

The newlyweds were honored at a reception after the ceremony in the church fireside room. Assisting were Mrs. Jack Seelye, Mrs. Dale Seelye, and the Misses Barbara, Susan and Janice Seelye, Barbara Sperry and Eloise Skillman.
