Bentzler, Virginia (18 OCT 1947)


The marriage of Miss Virginia A. Bentzler of Wisconsin Rapids, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Bentzler of Loyal, and John C. Grutzik, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Grutzik of City Point, was performed in St. Lawrence Catholic church in Wisconsin Rapids at 9:30 Saturday morning Oct. 18, by the Rev. Fr. Augustine Sulik.


Breakfast and supper for 75 guests were served at the home of the groom’s parents, where the couple also greeted 125 people at a reception.


The bride’s gown of white satin was trimmed with lace and fashioned with a sweetheart neckline. Her fingertip veil fell from a beaded headdress and she carried red roses and white carnations. A gold cross was a gift of the groom.


Mrs. Herbert Asplin of City Point, as matron of honor, wore blue net, while Miss Mary Bentzler of Neillsville was attired in a bridesmaid’s dress of pink net and taffeta. Miss Leona Bentzler of Loyal and Miss Louise Grutzik of City Point served as junior bridesmaids, wearing blue and pink net, respectively. All four attendants carried pink carnations and white baby mums and wore pink carnation headdresses. Their pearls were gifts of the bride.


Felix Grutzik of City Point was best man, and Albert Gutzik Jr., also of City Point, was the groom’s other attendant.


Among those from out of town guests at the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. George Bentzler and family, Chris Bentzler and Mrs. Louis Schweiger, all of Loyal, and Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Bentzler of Neillsville.


The bride, who attended school at Loyal, has been employed by the Ahdawagam Paper Products Co. in Wisconsin Rapids, and the groom, who attended school at City Point, is engaged in farming.


For a trip to southern Wisconsin the bride wore a beige gabardine suit with brown accessories. They will reside in City Point.


To the newlyweds, the Loyal Tribune extends its heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future.
