Joyce Elaine Martens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sanders of Colby, and Eugene E. Radtke, son of Al Radtke, were united in marriage at St. Bernard’s church at Watertown on Thursday, Nov. 23, Rev. George Maegber reading the marriage ceremony. Carol Radtke, sister of the groom, was maid of honor and June and Rita Martens, sisters of the bride, were senior bridesmaids and Misses Rose and JoAnn Martens, ? sisters of the bride, were junior bridesmaids. The groom was attended by his brother Robert E. Radtke, as best man. Ushers were Donald Martens, brother of the bride and Edward Havitz, Jr., cousin of the bride. Edward Havitz Sr., uncle of the bride, sang "Ave Maria" and "Could Jesus Do More."

The bride was attired in a colonial type gown of white slipper satin with long pointed sleeves, fitted bodice, full skirt with hoop-long train, lace trimmed. Her short illusion finger-tip veil was attached to a lace bonnet. Her colonial crescent bouquet consisted of white pompoms and cavalier roses.
