Here are two photographs of Rebecca Mock her wedding day. Her aunt Dorothy Peterson Sitts and her mother Barbara Peterson Mock made the wedding dress shortly before Dorothy married Marland Sitts at the Andover Lutheran Church near Windom, Kansas on May 4, 1952. The dress was subsequently worn by Barbara Peterson Mock when she married Lyle Mock at the First Christian Church in Hutchinson, Kansas. When Rebecca Mock was shopping for a wedding dress, she decided to wear the same dress her mother and aunt wore. The dress was a fit, and it only needed the lace at the neck line replaced. Rebecca wore the gown at her wedding to Robert Blick on August 9, 1980 at Park Place Christian Church in Hutchinson, Kansas. Each woman selected and wore their own wedding veil. The dress is in the Kansas State Historical Society's Museum collection.

Date: August 9, 1980
