Lobacz, Helen (31 MAY 1947)

At nine o’clock Saturday morning, May 31, 1947, a very pretty wedding took place at St. Hedwig’s Church, Thorp, when Miss Helen Lobacz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Lobacz, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Fred Kszyzanowski, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Kszyzanowski of Thorp (Clark Co.). Rev. Father Piekarski performed the double ring ceremony.

The bride, who was escorted by her father, wore a fine nylon net over satin gown with high neckline and long sleeves with net flowered appliqués through the long waist and neckline. Her full skirt ended in a train and her long veil was held together by a beaded crown. She carried a bouquet of white gladioli at the Blessed Virgin’s altar. The bride wore a locket, gift of the groom.

The groom wore a tuxedo and carnation boutonniere.

Miss Alice Lobacz, cousin of the bride, acted as maid of honor. She wore a yellow marquisette over satin gown with high neckline and "S" shaped ruffling through the long waistline. Other bridesmaids were miss Regina Lobacz, sister of the bride, Miss Gertrude Kszyzanowski, sister of the groom, and Miss Josephine Kszyzanowski, sister of the groom wh wore orchid gowns, identical to the maid of honor and all carried yellow carnations with matching ribbons. They all wore sweetheart hats the same color as the gowns. A rhinestone choker, a gift of the bride, completed their outfit.

Wally Kszyzanowski, brother of the groom, acted as best man. The other ushers were Michael Lobacz, brother of the bride, and Walter Nowak, cousin of the bride. They all wore tuxedos with carnation boutonnieres.

The bride’s mother wore a dark blue dress and the groom’s mother wore a dark green suit. They wore corsages of red roses and red carnations.
