Newquist-Gray Nuptials

Long time horse show exhibitor Sherri Lynn Newquist and John Theodore Gray III were married Sunday, June 2 at the Wesley United Methodist Church in Aurora, Ill. A dinner reception followed at the Lisle/Naperville Hilton.

Jan Newquist Boraca, sister of the bride, served as matron of honor, while the brides’ niece, Amanda Boraca was the flower girl. Both ride at Lori and Tony Ray’s Stoneridge Stables. Other horsey quests included the bride’s trainer, Kathy Jones-Herlocker of Albemarle, N.C., Brendan Heintz, Jayne Tillman, and veterinarian Debra Rykoff Hanover, her husband Dr. John Hanover, and their new daughter Ariel Rae Hanover.

Both the bride and groom are employees of United Airlines based out of O’Hare Airport. Sherri is a flight attendant and John in an aircraft engineer. An early 2003 honeymoon is planned with a trip to Australia. Sherri will be back in the show ring as soon as car show season is over. Their pride and joy for that activity is a 1936 Ford Streetrod.
