Foemmel, Joann Eileen (Marriage - 2 July 1966)


Mr. and Mrs. Thomas G. Gregurich, who were married last Saturday afternoon in a double ring ceremony in the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Granton, are on a wedding trip to Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania.


The Rev. F. C. Benecke officiated at the nuptial ceremony uniting in marriage the former Joann Eileen Foemmel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Foemmel of Rt. 2 Granton, and Thomas G. Gregurich of Neenah, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Gregurich of Rt. 2 Deerbrook.


Mrs. Keith Bird sang, "The Song of Ruth" and "The Wedding Prayer."


The bride wore a floor length, A-line gown of organza over nylon, featuring an empire waistline with the bodice and sleeves of imported lace. Braiding accented both the scalloped neckline and the appliquéd lace on the skirt. A bow at the center back held the flowing double chapel train, edged with imported lace.  Her pearl and crystal trimmed double Alencon lace crown held a modified bubble veil. White roses and stephanotis entwined with ivy formed her cascade arrangement.


Mrs. Don (Joyce) Riedel of Eau Claire was matron of honor, with Mrs. James (Janice) Mesar of Duluth, Minn., Mrs. Richard (Cora) Ayers of Phelps and Mrs. Tom (Phyllis) Kutzner of Milwaukee, as bridesmaids.  Identical floor length sheath formals of lace and georgette over taffeta were worn by the attendants. Their modified empire bodices of lace and the scoop necklines were edged with crocheted lace. Their elbow length sleeves were enhanced with wide ruffles.  Satin bands outlined the bodices.  Wide Watteau panels of lace, topped with bows, extended from their shoulders to the hemline of the dresses.  Each wore a matching veiled headpiece featuring a rose with petals and seed pearl trim. They were designed by the bride.


Miss Gail Gregurich of Deerbrook, as flowergirl, was attired in a dress styled like those of the other attendants. She carried a basket of rose petals.


David Golbach of Antigo was bestman.  Groomsmen were James Mesar of Duluth, Minn., Robert Gregurich of Appleton, and Don Riedel of Eau Claire.


The bride, a 1965 graduate of Stout State University, has been employed as a home economics instructor in the high school in Winneconne.  Mr. Gregurich, a 1966 graduate of the same school, will be industrial arts instructor in Oregon High School.
