Strebe, Marlene Ethel (Marriage - 8 June 1957)

Miss Marlene Ethel Strebe, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Strebe of Marshfield, Route 3, became the bride of Lyle Gerald Cathcart of Abbotsford, son of Charles Cathcart, Sr., of Milwaukee in a marriage ceremony Saturday afternoon at the First Presbyterian church in Abbotsford, Rev. Douglas P. Oyan of Marshfield officiating at the services. Gerald Strebe of Marshfield, the brother of the bride and Robert Lueth of Hartford, cousin of the groom, ushered at the church.

Richard Kennedy sang "I Love You Truly" and "Because."

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Cathcart Jr., of Minneapolis, brother and sister-in-law of the groom, were the best man and matron of honor. Mrs. Harold Goelden of Colby, a cousin of the bride, was the bridesmaid and Allen Strebe of Athens, the bride’s brother, was groomsman.

Mrs. Cathcart and Mrs. Goelden were attired in blue, their frocks having strapless bodices of lace. The lace extended into the skirt, which ended with scalloped tulle ruffles. Each had a lace bolero jacket and wore matching crowns of net and pearls. Their flowers were cascade arrangements of yellow carnations and stephanotis.

Scallops outlined the neckline and sleeve edges of the embroidered nylon tulle gown selected by the bride. The bodice had an insert of tucked nylon tulle and the overskirt of painted embroidered tulle had nylon tulle ruffles. The nylon tulle finger-tip veil hung from a headpiece of lace and pearls. Red roses and white carnations formed the bride’s cascade bouquet.

A 4:30 o’clock supper was served in the church parlors with the reception held at the Edgar Lenhard home that evening. Later the Cathcarts left on a wedding trip, which will take them to Yellowstone National Park.

The bride is a 1953 graduate of Marshfield High School, attended Central State College at Stevens Point three years and is now taking a year of internship in Medical technology at the Marshfield, Wisconsin Hospital. Her husband, a 1949 graduate of Abbotsford High School, has just completed his sophomore year at Central State College.
