Olson, Karen (Marriage - 24 June 1967)

Returning Saturday from a two-week honeymoon were Mr. and Mrs. Larry Sternitzky. They toured the Bad Lands, Custer Park, Yellowstone Park and the Redwood forests in California. They visited the Galloways in Washington, also the Harlowe Olsons in Missouri, the bride’s brother.

Mis Karen Olson, the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Korth of Neillsville, and Larry Sternitzky, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Sternitzky of Granton, were united in marriage by the Rev. David Archie in a double ring ceremony June 24, at Atonement Lutheran Church in Beloit. Mr. Korth gave his granddaughter in marriage.

Mrs. Steven Kalfsbeck of Beloit, and the groom’s sister, Mrs. Glen Galloway of Dover, Del., were co-matrons. Miss Marsha Fitzgerald and Miss Cheda Jones of Beloit were bridesmaids.

James Mesar of Eau Claire attended the groom as bestman. Groomsmen were Howard Olson of Beloit and James Mattern of Merewether, Mich. Dennis Olson of Beloit, Michael Jones of Glenview, Ill., and Ray Barth of Whitewater, ushered.

Merle Timmcke sang, “Oh Perfect Love,” accompanied by Henry De Bruyne at the organ.

A reception was held in the church parlors immediately following the ceremony, with Mrs. James Mesar of Eau Claire cutting and serving the wedding cake. A 5 o’clock wedding luncheon was given by the groom’s aunt, Mrs. Ray Jones, at her home in Beloit, where the rehearsal supper also was held, hosted by the groom’s parents.
