Zalewski, Alice (15 AUG 1959)


In a well filled church auditorium Saturday afternoon, Aug. 15, 1959, at the hour of two, Edward Zalewski gave into the hands of Lloyd Nelson those of his daughter Alice.  Pastor Predoehl officiated in this double ring ceremony.  Mr. and Mrs. Emil Presti of Milwaukee were best man and maid of honor, respectively.  Flower girl was little five-year-old Susan Nelson, a niece of the groom.  Organist was Miss Karen Potocnik, while Arlyn Mills sang the two well-beloved songs often heard at weddings, "Because" and "The Twenty-Third Psalm."


The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Zalewski, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.).  The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Nelson, whom make their home in Phoenix, Ariz., but have lived in Milwaukee, where their sons Lloyd learned the printer’s trade, which he expects to pursue.  The bride had been attending Wis. University - Milwaukee for the past year.  And has one more year of training for a profession of Medical laboratory technician.  Pervious to attending the University in Milwaukee the bride received her education in local elementary and high school, being graduated from the Owen-Withee system in 1958.


Ushers for this wedding ceremony were Edward and Albert Nygren of Milwaukee.  A white carpet was laid in the aisle of the church.  The groom was formally dressed in white coat and white trousers, while the bride wore a beautiful white bridal gown trimmed with lace.


The reception was held in the church parlors at 3:30 p.m.  The servers were friends of the bride and the groom, the Misses Ruth Ann Thompson, Ruth Ann Kares, Mardell Homann, and Cynthia Deblewarski of Chetek.


Many relatives and friends came from afar, especially from Chicago, Ill. and Milwaukee.
