Roth, Nancy (Marriage - 20 Aug. 1960)


Miss Nancy Roth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roland Roth, and Alan Brunkhorst, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arlyn Brunkhorst, all of Abbotsford, exchanged marriage vows Saturday morning, Aug. 20 at St. Bernard’s Catholic church. The double ring ceremony was witnessed by the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz before the 11 o’clock nuptial high mass.


Bouquets of yellow and white gladioli adorned the altars for the occasion.


The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore an informal sheath bridal gown of embroidered nylon tiers. The molded bodice of the nylon tiers over faille taffeta featured a square neckline and shirred cap sleeves. The sheath skirt was accented by an over panel of nylon sheer, topped by a large bow and streamers. She wore a dainty pill box head piece of pleated silk organza with a short veil. She carried a white orchid surrounded by stephanotis.


Mrs. Robert Hanson of Colby, cousin of the bride, and Ronald Weix of Milwaukee, friend of the groom, were attendants.


The matron of honor appeared in a ballerina length dress of yellow pure silk organza over taffeta. Yellow daisies and white pompons were used in her headpiece and in the bouquet which she carried.


For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Roth chose a dusty blue lace sheath dress and accessories in a deeper shade of blue.


Mrs. Brunkhorst wore a sheath dress of a beige brocade and beige accessories. Both mothers and Mrs. Cathryn Carpenter, grand mother of the groom, had corsages of pink garnette roses and white stephanotis.


A reception was held at the village hall from 1 to 4 o’clock, followed by dinner at the high school gymnasium.


Mr. and Mrs. Brunkhorst left on a short honeymoon trip to northern Wisconsin. They will make their home at Auburndale where he has accepted the position of football coach.


Both young people are graduates of the Abbotsford high school and Mr. Brunkhorst was graduated from Wisconsin State College at Eau Claire.
