Ostenson, Patricia M. (Marriage - 12 September 1970)

Miss Patricia M. Ostenson of Rt. 3 Thorp, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew G. Stafen of Cicero, Ill., was united in marriage to Jerome E. Stremikis, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Stremikis of Rt. 1 Willard, Saturday at 2 p.m. in ceremonies performed in Holy Family Catholic Church, Willard. The Rev. Michael G. Mertens performed the double-ring ceremony in the presence of 165 guests.

The bride wore a light avocado green sating empire gown, covered with white organza lace and embroidered with crystal-like daisies. She carried a large bouquet of white daisies, as she was escorted to the altar by her uncle, Erich Kapfer, and her mother because of her father’s illness.

Miss Joan Stafen of Cicero, Ill. was maid-of-honor, and Miss Bernadette Stremikis was bridesmaid. They wore pale avocado green gowns of satin, covered with chiffon. The sleeves were full with flowered embroidery around them and the waist. They carried bronze daisies on a green background.

John Stremikis was bestman. He is stationed with the army in Washington, D. C. Joe Stremikis was the groomsman. Both are brothers of the groom. Ushers were Jim Zoller of Willard and Larry Benedict of Neillsville.

A reception was held at the Holy Family parish hall, with 200 guests attending.

The bride graduated from Morton East High School, Cicero, in 1967 and is a former employee of Thorp Finance Corporation in Thorp. The groom graduated from Greenwood High School in 1960 and is employed at the Greenwood post office as a clerk.

After a wedding trip into western states, the couple will make their home on Rt. 3 Thorp.
