Miss Joyce Anne Ellenbecker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Ellenbecker of Rt. 1 Dorchester, was united in marriage to Arlyn John Ampe, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Ampe, Sr., of Rt. 1 Loyal, Friday, in ceremonies at St. Louis Catholic Church in Dorchester. The Rev. Gerald Schuh performed the double-ring ceremony in the presence of 120 guests.

Diane Wanke of Kewaskum was maid-of-honor. Marlene Ampe of Loyal and Mrs. Paul Ampe, Jr., of Kenosha, were bridesmaids. They wore floor-length, empire style dotted Swiss gowns of blue and white and carried colonial-style bouquets of assorted flowers.

Dennis Engevold of Spence was bestman. David Ellenbecker of Dorchester and Paul Ampe, Jr., of Kenosha, were groomsmen. Michael Wanke of Kewaskum and Ray Wehe of Loyal were ushers.
