Strebe, Marlene Ethel (Marriage - 8 June 1957) 

Miss Marlene Ethel Strebe, Marshfield, became the bride of Lyle Gerald Cathcart, Abbotsford, son of Charles Cathcart, Sr., Milwaukee, in a marriage ceremony performed Saturday afternoon at the First Presbyterian church, Abbotsford. The bride’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Strebe, rt. 3, Marshfield. The groom is the grandson of Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Lueth, Abbotsford.  

Officiating at the nuptials was the Rev. Douglas P. Oyan of the First Presbyterian church, Marshfield, and ushering for the rites were Gerald Strebe, rt. 3, Marshfield, brother of the bride, and Robert Lueth, Hartford, cousin of the groom.  

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

Mrs. Cathcart and Mrs. Goelden were attired in blue, their frocks having rows of scalloped tulle, ruffles and strapless bodices of lace. The lace extended into the skirt, which ended with 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, a 1953 graduate of Marshfield high school, also attended Central State College, Stevens Point, for three years, and is now taking a year of internship in medical technology at St. Joseph’s hospital, Marshfield. Her husband, a 1949 graduate of Abbotsford high school, has just completed his sophomore year at Central State College.
