Ruzic, Donnielle Ivana (Marriage - 15 June 1957) 

June 15 was the date of the wedding of Miss Donnielle Ivana Ruzic, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Ruzic of Greenwood, Rt. 1, and Hilbert John Martens, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Scheffeck of Rt. 2, Greenwood. 

The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Fr. Augustine Svete at the Holy Family Catholic Church, Willard.  The church was decorated with baskets of white and pink peonies.  White satin bows marked the pews as did poles of mixed flowers. 

The bride was given in marriage by her father. For her wedding she wore the traditional white gown, the full skirt of which was of nylon tulle and lace. The bodice of nylon lace was trimmed with sequins and her finger tip veil, with a scattering of clusters of beads, cascaded from a crown of sequins and swansonia. 

Mrs. Geraldine Ruzic attended her sister-in-law as matron-of-honor.  Mrs. Charles Martens and Miss Judy Martens were her bridesmaids.   

Bill Martens attended his brother as bestman.  Groomsmen were brothers of the bride, Ivan Ruzic and Gary Ruzic. Ted and Tim Martens, brothers of the groom, were the ushers.  

A reception and dinner were held at the Catholic Hall in Willard and a supper was served at the home of the bride’s parents.  Vases of roses and peonies decorated the home and hall. 

Mr. and Mrs. Mertens are graduates of the Greenwood school.  Mrs. Martens also was graduated from the Eau Claire State College.
