Prock, Patricia Ann (10 JUN 1961)


The Rev. Father H.L. Crubel officiated at the wedding ceremony which was held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Owen on Saturday morning, June 10th, 1961, at 9:30 a.m., which united Patricia Ann Prock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Al J. Rock, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), and William A. Pawlak, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Pawlak of Thorp.


Given in marriage by her father, the bride approached the altar attired in a chapel train bridal gown of gleaming taffeta.  A scalloped sweetheart neckline with a cut out filigree design and long traditional tapered sleeves accented the fitted Basque.  Gathers at the waist highlighted the bouffant skirt which had a filigree design throughout the skirt leading to the chapel train.  A duel tiered princess crown of lace, detailed with pearly arches and aurora borealis trimmed with pearl drops held her silk illusion fingertip veil.  She carried a bouquet of pink roses and white stephanotis in a cascade arrangement.


Attending the bride as maid of honor was Miss Karen Potocnik, a friend of the bride’s from Owen, with the bridesmaids being Mrs. Michael Dupey, a friend from Chippewa Falls.  Miss Linda Carlson, a friend from Owen, and Miss Jane Huth, a cousin of the bride’s from Baraboo.


The maid of honor and bridesmaids’ gowns were floor length of flocked nylon sheer in white over baby blue taffeta.  The gowns were styled with a pouf bustle back finished with a large blue taffeta bow.  The Basque bodices of the dresses had a portrait neckline and small puffed sleeves.  Their headpieces were small pearl tipped petal hats in powder blue holding blusher veils and they carried colonial bouquets of white and blue carnations.


Attending the groom were Mrs. Thomas Pawlak, brother of the groom from Chicago, Michal Dupey, Robert Prock, brother of the bride, and Sylvester Harycki.


A miniature bride, Miss Diane Hieber, niece of the groom from Chicago, preceded the bride down the aisle dressed identically to the bride in attire and flowers.


Serving as ushers were Mr. Davis Hoeper, cousin of the bride, of Chicago, Ill., and Mr. Dale Groseth, a friend of Chippewa Falls.


A reception was held at the Thorp Finance Dining Hall in Thorp and a dinner was held at the Woodland Hotel in Owen.


After a wedding trip which took them to Mackinac Island in Michigan and northern Wisconsin, the newlyweds will be at home on the banks of Lake Wissota at Chippewa Falls.
