Crowley, Rose M. #2 (25 AUG 1955)


Miss Rose Marie Crowley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Crowley, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), and William Micke, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. William Micke of Stanley were married at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church at Owen on Thursday, Aug. 25, 1955.


The Rev. H. L. Crubel read the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with colored gladiolas.


The bride, who was given in marriage by her brother, wore a gown of Chantilly lace and net over satin, fashioned floor length with filled bodice, illusion neckline and pearl trim, long tapering sleeves, full lace skirt over net and satin.  Sequined trimmed shell hat held the imported silk bridal veil.  She carried a bouquet of red sweetheart roses.


Miss Joan Micke, sister of the groom, was maid of honor.  She wore a turquoise gown of lace and net over taffeta, fashioned with fitted strapless bodice and a lace bolero.  Bouffant net skirt extended from the elongated waistline was over net and taffeta.  She carried a colonial bouquet of rust and yellow mums.


Mrs. Richard Hansen of Eau Claire and Miss Raymond Stasek, Owen, served as bridesmaids.  They had gowns and flowers identical to that of the maid of honor.


Robert Benzschawel of Thorp, the groom’s cousin, was best man.  Groomsmen were John Crowley, brother of the bride, and Milton Laabs, friend of the bride and groom, both of Owen.


Armon Micke, brother of the groom, and Alvin Benzschawel, cousin of the groom, served as ushers.


The bride’s mother wore a dress of aqua lace over taffeta with white accessories.  The groom’s mother wore a toast brown dress with brown accessories.  Both had corsages of yellow roses.


A dinner was served in the church parlor for about 60 guests and reception was from 2 to 6 for about 170 guests.


When the couple left on their wedding trip through northern Wisconsin, the bride was wearing a white linen dress with red accessories.


Out of town guests attending the wedding were from Milwaukee, Eau Claire, North Chicago, Thorp, Withee, Stanley, Tomah, Chippewa and Stevens Point.
