Kuenzi, Gladys M. (Marriage - 1 Nov. 1958) 

Miss Gladys M. Kuenzi and Junior H. Gosse exchanged marriage vows Saturday afternoon in Christ Lutheran church with the Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiating. 

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Kuenzi and the groom is the son of Mrs. Doris Gosse and the late Henry Gosse of Curtiss, Wisconsin. 

During the 2:00 o’clock ceremony, the Misses Dorothy and Marilyn Kieser sang "O Perfect Love," and "Jesus, Lead Thou On." Miss Shirley Sprengler was organist. 

Mr. Kuenzi escorted his daughter to the altar which was decorated with white and yellow mums. 

The bride appeared in a bouffant gown of delustered satin peau-de-soi with full circular chapel train over nylon net and taffeta. Venise lace appliqués studded with iridescent sequins and seed pearls outlined the scoop neckline that came to a v in the front of the molded bodice. The long sleeves that tapered to points over the wrist were secured with dainty satin covered buttons. 

The bridal veil of imported French silk illusion in finger tip length was secured to a lace bonnet with scalloped, fluted brim with pleated tulle outlined in seed pearls. Iridescent sequins and seed pearls detailed the bonnet. 

She carried a cascade bouquet of yellow roses and white carnations. 

Attending the couple were Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Bahr of Milwaukee, Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Schultz of Merrill, both sisters of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. Victor Gosse, Curtiss, brother of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. John Myre, Abbotsford, friends. The junior bridesmaid was Miss Janice Kay Gosse, Curtiss, sister of the groom. 

Ushers were Ronald Gosse, Curtiss, nephew of the groom, and Arvin Gosse, Abbotsford, a cousin. 

The bride’s attendants wore identically styled ballerina length gowns of peau-de-soi over nylon net. The bodice was made with a carved neckline and short sleeves with a small bow trim. The waist line had a pleated cummerbund tied at the back with a large bow and the skirt was box pleated. They wore head bands created out of yellow and white mums and carried cascade bouquets of yellow and white mums and carnations. 

The matron of honor was attired in turquoise and the bridesmaids in pumpkin color. 

The bride and all her attendants wore dew drop cut crystals to form heart shaped necklaces and earrings to match. The bride’s was a gift from the groom, and the bridesmaids, a gift from the bride. 

Mrs. Kuenzi chose a dress of royal blue and pink accessories for her daughter’s wedding and Mrs. Gosse wore blue accessories with a royal blue ensemble. Both mothers had corsages of pink garnet roses. 

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents and supper was served at Mary and Pete’s at Medford. 

Guests came from Curtiss, Dorchester, Marshfield, Milwaukee, Madison, Jefferson, Juneau, Colby, Shawano, Bonduel, Wittenberg, and Wausau. A brother, Herman Leo Lutzewitz, arrived from San Francisco Naval Base, California. 

Mr. Gosse is serving with the United States army and Mrs. Gosse has been employed by Employers Mutuals at Wausau. They will make their home in Abbotsford.
