Konwinski, Rosella L. (25 OCT 1955)


A dinner for about 20 guests and a buffet supper for nearly 475 followed the wedding of Rosella Louise Konwinski and Francis Joseph Koepl at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, 1955.


The couple, who parents are Mr. and Mrs. Peter Konwinski and Mrs. and Mrs. Frank Koepl, all of Stanley, were married in St. Hedwig’s Catholic Church at Thorp.


Attending the bride as maid of honor was her niece, Patsy Holewinski of Stanley.  Bridesmaids were Irene Konwinski of Chicago, the bride’s sister, Mrs. John Moeller of Dyer, Ind., the bridegroom’s sister, and Irene Horounziak of Thorp.


An Elizabethan collar was the outstanding detail of the bridal gown of Chantilly lace and tulle over satin.  The chapel length bouffant skirt of all over lace design was worn over net and satin.  A crown of brilliants and sequins held her silk illusion veil and she carried a bouquet of white carnations and red roses.


White and pink carnations were intermingled in the cascade bouquets carried by her attendants.  All were attired in floor length dresses of net and lace over taffeta, topped with lace jackets.  Rhinestones trimmed their ruffled net headbands.


Colors of their dresses were in pastels, Miss Holewinski in shrimp, Miss Konwinski, orchid, Mrs. Moeller, aqua, and Miss Horounziak, yellow.


A cousin of the bridegroom, Daniel Eslinger of Stanley, attended him as best man.  Appearing in the double roles of groomsmen and ushers were John Moeller, the bridegroom’s brother-in-law, and Edward Konwinski of Stanley, the bride’s brother.


A wine velvet dress was worn by Mrs. Konwinski on her daughter’s wedding day.  With it she wore navy blue accessories and a corsage of red roses and white carnations.  The bridegroom’s mother also wore a corsage of roses and carnations against a teal blue crepe dress.  Her accessories were black.


Mr. and Mrs. Koepl will honeymoon in southern Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois before returning to make their home at Stanley.  Both attended high school there, and are employed in Stanley.  For the past three years, the new Mrs. Koepl has worked at Neillie’s Café and her husband has been employed at the Studebaker Garage.
