Germaine Evelyn Badzinski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Badzinski Sr., and John F. Klouda, son of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Klouda of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), were married at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church Saturday, morning, Aug. 18, 1962 at 10:00 a.m. by the Rev. Francis Brockman.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor length gown of white silk organza with scoop neckline, cummerbund and short sleeves topping her bouffant skirt fashioned with two lace edged tiers in back. A crown of pearl drops held her bouffant silk illusion veil. She carried a bouquet of white orchids, red rose buds and stephanotis.

Marcelene Badzinski was maid of honor, in a street length dress of yellow silk organza over taffeta with stand away collar, three quarter length sleeves and full skirt. Her headpiece was of yellow organza flower cluster with nylon tulle veil. Dressed like the maid of honor were bridesmaids, Mrs. Donald Soderberg, Wausau, Rosemary Badzinski and Louella Badzinski. They each carried a cascade of red rose buds.

Donald Soderberg was best man. Groomsmen were Tom Giaudrone, Falls Church, Va., and Robert Badzinski. Ushers were David Guell, Evanston, Ill., and Keith Glasshof, Chippewa Falls.

A reception for 175 guests was held at the Thorp Finance dining hall.

The bride, a graduate of Thorp High School, was employed by the Thorp Finance Co. The groom, a graduate of Thorp High School and Michigan Tech and University of Minnesota, will be employed by the Univ. of Miami as a student teaching assistant.

After a trip to upper Michigan, the couple will reside at 2392 W. Laupentuer Ave., St. Paul.
