O’Brien, Alice (14 SEP 1963)


Miss Alice Esther O’Brien, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester O’Brien, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), was given in marriage by her father to Alvin Herman Pribbernow, Owen, son of Mrs. Martha Pribbernow, Milwaukee, and the late Alvin Pribbernow, on Saturday, Sept. 14, 1963, at 1:00 p.m. in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Thorp.


The Rev. R.W. Olson was the officiating clergyman for the service, for which Mrs. Walter Reinke, Thorp, was the organist.  Mrs. Herbert Schawer, Thorp, sang "O Perfect Love" and "Crown with Thy Benediction."


The bride’s white ballerina length wedding gown of peau de soie was made with bateau neckline and belled skirt fashioned with tiers outlined with Alencon lace and having self-fabric roses in the sides with bows and streamers at the back.


Her French illusion fingertip veil was secured to a queen’s crown of pearls and she carried a cascade of roses and carnations.


Mrs. Dorothy Bergman, Athens, the matron of honor, was seen in a gown featuring a green taffeta skirt with matching chiffon overskirt and bow and streamers at the back.  She had a bow headpiece and carried a cascade of tinted pompons.


Don Pribbernow, Withee, was the best man.


The church ceremony was followed by a reception, dinner and dance at the American Legion Hall at Greenwood.  Guests came from Fond du Lac, Athens, Owen, Abbotsford, Colby, Greenwood, Withee, Unity, Loyal, Marshfield, Plymouth and Thorp.


Following a honeymoon spent in northern Michigan and Wisconsin, the newlyweds will make their home at Owen.


The new Mrs. Pribbernow, a 1958 graduate of Spencer High School, has been employed by Streckert Manufacturing Co., Inc., Abbotsford.  Her husband, who received his education at Withee, works for the Owen Dairy Co., Owen.
