Kozenka, Sophie #2 (4 SEP 1943)

Mr. Edward Michur, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Michur of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), and Miss Sophie Kozenka, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Kozenka of Thorp, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony at St. Hedwig’s Church, Thorp, in a ceremony performed by Father Francis Piekarski at 9:00 o’clock Saturday morning, Sept. 4, 1943.

The bride was led to the altar by her father and the groom by his mother.

The bride was beautifully gowned in slipper satin with sweetheart neckline, low waisted, with a gathered celanese skirt. She wore a wide two yard train and laced edged veil with blusher and pearl beaded crown, the bridegroom’s gift. Around her neck she wore a gold heart shaped locket with mother of pearl center and pearl earrings. Her bouquet was of white roses, carnations, gardenias and sweet peas. The bride carried a bouquet of flowers to the Blessed Virgin Mary Altar.

Best man was Joe Kozenka, brother of the bride. The bridesmaid was Miss Evelyn, sister of the groom, who was attired in a lace top, low waisted dress with celanese gathered skirt in pink orchid.
