Conroy, Joan Ann (Marriage - 16 April 1955) 

Miss Joan Ann Conroy chose Satruday April 16 as the date for her marriage to Karl A. Peterson. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Michael J. Conroy, uncle of the bride, at 9:00 a.m. in the Our Lady of Grace R. C. Church in Pittsburgh, Pa., before an altar decorated with white and peach gladioli. 

The parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. John M. Conroy of 1104 Virginia Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa., and Mr. and Mrs. Arne O. Peterson of 204 E. Fifth St. Neillsville. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a white taffeta dress with a chapel train.  Her finer-tip veil was fastened to a tiara.  White roses and violets made up her bouquet. 

Deloris Conroy attended her sister as maid of honor.  Bridesmaids were Margaret Peterson, sister of the groom, Marilyn Conroy and Marlyon Hainish. 

John R. Peterson of Beloit attended the groom as best man.  Ushers were Donald Braegge, St. Louis, Mo.; Erik Pedderson, Luck, Wis., and Edward Conroy of Pittsburgh, Pa. 

Approximately 250 guests attended the wedding reception held at the Penn Lincoln Hotel in Pittsburgh. 

After a wedding trip to Washington, D. C., Mr. and Mrs. Peterson will make their home in Norfolk, Va., where the groom is stationed with the U. S. Navy.
