Langfeldt, Joann Kathryn (Marriage - 10 July 1957) 

Her bridal attendants, in identically styled gowns of nylon sheer in pale aqua shade, preceded Joann Kathryn Langfeldt up the aisle of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church Wednesday, July 10, at 10 a.m. where she was married to Donald Glen Oestreich. The young women carried colonial bouquets, roses, carnations, and lilies of the valley.  Their gowns were styled with low bodices, scalloped necklines and short sleeves, and their full length skirts were complimented with large back bows.  Mrs. Norman Polasek, Wild Rose, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and Doris Schneider and Beverly Schumacher, both of Marshfield, and Wilma Walbruck, of Wausau were bridesmaids.   

Rev. Gerald Fischer officiated.  The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Max F. Langfeldt, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Evert Oestreich. 

Nylon tulle over satin made the bride’s gown. The dress was styled with a long torso waistline to which was attached the floor length skirt, Alencon lace-edged panels trimmed the short sleeved bodice and lace edged cross pleated panels of nylon tulle trimmed the bouffant skirt. Her finger tip veil of tulle was held by a headpiece of sequins and pearls.  She carried a cascade arrangement of red roses with streamers of stephanotis and rosebuds. 

The groom chose for his best man, Norman Polasek of Wild Rose, brother-in-law of the bride; and for his other attendants his brothers, Richard and Robert Oestreich, Loyal, and a friend, Herbert Schneider of Marshfield.  Ushers were Herbert Langfeldt of Loyal, brother of the bride and Ronald Reindel, Neillsville brother-in-law of the groom. 

Bonnie Sue Langfeldt, sister of the bride, served as flower girl in a floor-length gown of white satin with a front panel of net and a lace ruffled back, and carrying a basket of white daisies.  Micky Oestreich, a cousin of the groom, carried the rings for the double-ring ceremony. 

A dinner and supper were served in St. Anthony’s dining hall, and a reception was held at the bride’s home.  A wedding dance was given at Riverview ballroom.  

Both young people attended Loyal High School. The bride attended central State College at Stevens Point for two years, and is employed as a bookkeeper in Marshfield. The groom operates a farm on Loyal, Rt. 1, where they will reside when they return from a honeymoon in southern states.
