Burhop, Diane (Marriage - 16 July 1966)


A one o’clock nuptial high mass Saturday was said in St. Katherine’s Episcopal Church in Owen, uniting in marriage Miss Diane Burhop, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Burhop of Owen, and Robert Prock, son of Mr. and Mrs. Al Prock of Owen. The Rev. Richard Hewetson performed the ceremony.


"Lord, Who at Cana’s Feast," "Our Father by Whose Name," and "Be Thou with Them" were sung by Lawrence LeFevre, accompanied at the organ by Miss Sharon Heideman.


Mr. Burhop gave his daughter in marriage.  For her wedding the bride chose a floor-length Empire organza bridal gown that featured lantern sleeves of hand-clipped Chantilly lace.  Highlighting the A-line skirt, which was accented by a deep border of lace, was a detachable train that swept into a chapel length. A cascade of Alencon lace petals, embellished with seed pearls and aurora borealis, topped with a silk organza rose, fashioned the headpiece that secured her bouffant elbow veil. She carried three long-stemmed, pink roses.


Her attendants were Miss Shirley Peterson, maid of honor; Mrs. Joseph Switzky, Mrs. William Pawlak and Miss Janie Westendorf, bridesmaids.  The attendants wore floor length sheaths of Hawthorne green crepe, accented at Empire waists with lighter green Venetian lace.  Open pillboxes, encircled with Venetian lace and bouffant veils completed their ensembles.  Each carried a long stemmed, pink rose.


Rolland Woodbeck served as bestman.  Groomsmen were Joseph Switzky, William Pawlak and Alan Burhop. Ushers were Ronald Stasek and Kenneth Thorson.


Mr. and Mrs. Prock have left on a wedding trip to the Black Hills.


The bride, a 1964 graduate of Owen-Withee High School, is a junior at Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire.  Mr. Prock, a 1962 Owen graduate, is employed in Eau Claire.
