Lea, Linda (31 DEC 1960)


St. Charles Borromeo Church, Chippewa Falls, in its Christmas décor, was the setting for the marriage of Linda Lea and James Wrozek at 8 o’clock on the morning of Dec. 31st, 1960.


Rev. Father Hart of Barron, Wis. was the celebrant at the Nuptial Mass, with Father Smith presiding as organist.


Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lea of 77 Hydroland, Chippewa Falls, and Mr. and Mrs. J.K. Wrozek of Stanley.


The bride, escorted by her father, wore a ballerina length wedding gown of Chantilly lace and tulle over net and satin, fashioned with fitted lace Basque, Sabrina neckline and long tapered sleeves.  Wide lace inserts detailed the bouffant tulle skirt.  Her fingertip veil fell from a beaded tiara crown and she carried a spray bouquet of red and white roses.


The bridesmaid, Sally Lea, sister of the bride, wore a deep red velvet sheath, street length, with a white feather clip.  She carried a spray bouquet of white carnations.


The best man was Robert Wrozek, Beloit, Wis., brother of the groom.  Ushers were Fred Toltzman of Eau Claire, brother-in-law of the groom, and Don Pulver of Chippewa Falls.


A wedding breakfast, prepared by Mrs. Mary Urban was served in the parish hall, served by Karen Nyhus, Karen Zeweitel, Linda Rasmus, Karen Hartman, Susan LeDuc, Karen LeDuc, Rita Coushman and Karen Lea.  The wedding cake was cut by Mrs. L.O. Moon and punch was served by Karen Gatten.
