Blazer, Ardyce (21 SEP 1957)


Miss Ardyce Joan Blazer, Milwaukee, and Donald Clyde Bussard, Cincinnati, Ohio, knelt before the altar of First Congregational Church in Owen on Saturday afternoon to exchange marriage vows in the presence of the pastor, the Rev. Ralph Claybaugh.


Arlyn Mills sang two vocal selections, "I Love You Truly" and "The Lord’s Prayer," during the 2 o’clock service, with Jane Grimes as organist.


For her wedding, the bride, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Blazer, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), chose a lace netting over taffeta floor length gown enhanced with a fingertip veil.  In her arms she held a crescent shaped bouquet of red roses and white carnations.


Lavender streamers extended from the bouquet of yellow carnations carried by Judy Strohkirch, Milwaukee, when she served as maid of honor.  Her frock was ruffled net in a lavender shade.  Her escort was David Blazer, a cousin of the bride.  Showing the guests to their seats in the church were Jerry Strohkirch and Lyle Dickinson, a cousin of the bride.


Before leaving for their home at 813 E. Wells in Milwaukee, the bride and her husband, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Bussard, Cincinnati, Ohio, greeted guests from Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Dorchester, Withee and the Owen area at a reception at the home of the bride’s parents.


The new Mrs. Bussard is employed in the office of the Harley Davidson Co. in Milwaukee, while her husband, a graduate of Hughes High School in Cincinnati, is enrolled as a student in the Milwaukee School of Engineering.  She graduated with the ’55 class from Owen High School.
