Koltis, Genevieve #2 (16 JUL 1949)

Miss Genevieve Koltis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Koltis of the Town of Reseburg (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of Rhinehart Lewerenz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Lewerenz of Neillsville, in a ceremony performed by Rev. Francis Piekarski at St. Hedwig’s Church at 9:00 o’clock on the morning of July 16th.

The couple was attended by John Bogue and Leocadia Bogue as best man and first bridesmaid. Miss Helen Koltis, sister of the bride, was maid of honor.

The bride was beautifully attired in a satin gown trimmed with lace and wore a full length veil. Her wedding bouquet was of white roses and gardenias.

Ben Koltis, brother of the bride, and Ethel Sokolowski were the second attending couple. Miss Sokolowski wore a dress of white marquisette and white hat, as did the first bridesmaid and maid of honor. All wore snowflake necklaces, gifts of the bride, and carried bouquets of red roses and white carnations. The groom was attired in dark blue and his attendants wore suits of blue gabardine.

Immediately after the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and a wedding dance at the American Legion Hall in the evening.

The newlyweds will reside in Chippewa Falls, where the groom is engaged in business as a cabinetmaker.

Guests from out of town who were here to attend the wedding were: Mr. and Mrs. John Bogue, Helen Koltis, Ted Koltis, Betty Hoeschal and Mr. and Mrs. Lentowski, of Chicago; Mrs. Otto Lewerenz, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Lewerenz and son, Mr. and Mrs. W. Valz, of Neillsville; and Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Schroder and daughter of Cornell, and Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Raloff.
