Feind, Shirley (Marriage - 17 Mar. 1956)

Of interest to friends and relatives, comes the announcement of the marriage of Miss Shirley Feind of Milwaukee to Anton Groshek, also of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Miss Feind is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Feind of the town of Colby and the groom’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. John Groshek of Rosholt, Wis.

The double-ring ceremony was performed Saturday, March 17, in St. Vincent DePaul Catholic church, Milwaukee, followed by a nuptial mass at 9:00 o’clock offered by the Rev. A. Sawinski.

When the bride approached the altar, she was wearing a floor-length gown in traditional bridal satin. The bodice was all lace with tiny covered buttons extending down the back and a Mandarin collar, the double layers of net extending out over the skirt, the sleeves tapered to the wrists. Her finger-tip veil of French illusion was attached to a satin crown of rhinestones and seed pearls. Her bridal bouquet of all white carnations was tied with tiny white ribbons.

Joyce Lorbeck, a friend of the bride, was maid of honor and Joyce Feind, a sister of the bride, was bridesmaid. They wore floor-length dresses, identically styled in yellow and orchid, and wore matching headpieces. Their bouquets of sweet peas and white carnations were tied with lacy orchid and yellow ribbons to match their gowns.

The groom’s brother, Ray, attended as best man and a nephew, Gene Groshek, attended as groomsman. All the men were attired in tuxedos with black trousers and charcoal grey jackets.

A breakfast at the home of the groom’s sister followed the wedding. Later in the day, a reception was held at Myron & Stella’s Hall, South Pearl St., Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

When the newlyweds return from their honeymoon in southern states, they will reside in Milwaukee where they are employed.

The bride is a graduate of the Colby High School.
