Bardeen, Kathleen (5 SEP 1964)

In a ceremony read at noon on September 5 in St. Casimir's Church, Racine, Wisconsin, Kathleen Marie Bardeen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Bardeen, of 814 Hayes Ave., Racine, Wis., became the bride of Thomas Michael Grendzinski, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Grendzinski, Sr. of Thorp, Wisconsin.

The Rev. Bonoface Vaisnoras officiated.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white organza over acetate with a lace bodice featuring a bateau neckline. A chapel train and X shaped back below accented the a-line skirt. A crystal crown held her elbow length veil and she carried a cascade of gardenias, stephanotis, and Ivy.

Irena Vindasius was her maid of honor, in a floor length gown of moss green satin and carried a cascade bouquet of green Fuji mums and lemon leaves. Eugene Grucelski was best man and ushers were John Bardeen, the bride's brother, Robert Costen, the bride's brother-in-law and Dave Mittelstadt.

The bride's mother saw the rites in a deep blue-green knit suit with matching accessories and the bridegroom's mother wore a frock of brown print jersey with matching accents. Both mothers had corsages of white gardenias and Stephanotis.

The ceremony preceded a luncheon, and evening supper, and dancing in the church hall.

After a trip to northern Wisconsin, the bridal pair will live at 1540-1/2 East Madison St. in Eau Claire, where they will resume their studies majoring in mathematics at Wisconsin State University. Both previously attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison where the bridegroom was affiliated with Kappa Eta Kappa.
