Thom, Audrey L. (24 MAY 1958)


Miss Audrey Lucille Thom, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Thom of Cadott, became the bride of Edward Joseph Konwinski, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Konwinski of Stanley, on Saturday.


Father Wagner performed the double ring ceremony at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Cadott.  The bride chose a gown of Rosepoint lace and tulle over net and satin, floor length.  It was re-embroidered in iridescents and pearls, wing collar and tapering sleeves.  Lace inserts detailed the bouffant tulle skirt.  A jeweled crown held her imported silk illusion veil, and red roses embedded in white carnations composed her cross shaped bouquet.


The bride chose Miss Irene Konwinski, Stanley, sister of the groom, as maid of honor.  Her green gown of net over taffeta was floor length with a fitted bodice and matching bolero jacket.  Ruffles and lace trimmed the bouffant skirt.  A flowered half crown in matching color was her headpiece.  Miss Sandy Heagle of Bloomer, friend of the bride, and Miss Betty Jean Konwinski of Chippewa Falls, niece of the groom, were bridesmaids.  The gowns were styled identical to the maid of honor’s, only in orchid and yellow.  They all carried cascades of carnations matching their gowns.


The groom chose his nephew John Holewinski Jr. of Thorp as his best man.  The groomsmen were Donald Zimmerman of Eau Claire, cousin of the bride, and Doren Thom, brother of the bride, of Cadott.  The ushers were Chester Konwinski, brother of the groom and Ellsworth Thom, brother of the bride.  The men were attired in white jackets and black trousers and red rose boutonnieres.


At 12 o’clock noon dinner was served at the bride’s parents to 100 guests.  A reception was held in the afternoon at Crystal Palace Ballroom to 400 relatives and friends.


The mother of the bride greeted her guests wearing a gray crepe dress with orchid accessories and a corsage of white carnations and red roses.  The groom’s mother pinned a similar corsage on her navy blue dress with which she wore white accessories.


The young couple  lives in Chippewa Falls.  The groom is employed at Peters Meats in Chippewa Falls.


Out of town relatives and friends attended the wedding from Illinois, Thorp, Stanley, Chippewa, Bloomer and Augusta.
