Rothenburger, June Carol (Marriage - 19 August 1967)

Two hundred guests Saturday witnessed a double ring ceremony uniting in marriage Miss June Carol Rothenburger and Jon Ernest Karnitz of Rt. 3 Neillsville.

The Rev. Evan Dieck performed the two o’clock ceremony in the Zion American Lutheran Church in the Town of Grant, uniting in marriage the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Karnitz of Neillsville and the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Rothenburger of Rt. 1, Neillsville. Altar bouquets were baskets of aqua and white gladioli.

Miss Jan Volm, and Mrs. Dorothy Scott, sang and played nuptial music as the bride entered the church with her father.

For her wedding the bride chose a floor-length gown fashioned with a jewel-trimmed scalloped neckline that topped a Chantilly lace bodice. The full skirt was of nylon sheer and lace that ended in a chapel sweep. A jeweled lily-of-the-valley headpiece held her bouffant veil. She carried a white glamillias with ivy leaves.

Bridal aides were Miss Connie Kocian of Colby as maid-of-honor; Mrs. Ronald Kostrzak of Manawa and Mrs. Kenneth Karnitz of Neillsville as bridesmaids. The attendants donned aqua floor-length formals, styled with lace bodices accented at the Empire waistlines by satin. Their sheath skirts of chiffon-over-taffeta were completed in the back by lace Watteau panels. Fingertip veils were attached to matching fabric flowers seeded with pearls.

Richard Hagen of Neillsville was bestman. Groomsmen were Ronald Wren of West Bend and Kenneth Karnitz of Neillsville. Ushers were Kerry Karnitz of Neillsville and Dennis Cardarelle of West Bend.

The bride, a 1965 graduate of Wisconsin State University-Stevens Point, will teach home economics in the Adams-Friendship High School this fall. Mr. Karnitz is a graduate of the Eau Claire vocational school and is employed as an accountant for a Wisconsin paper company.

Mr. and Mrs. Karnitz will make their home at 77 ½ 10th Ave. Wisconsin Rapids, on their return from a wedding trip.
