Harvey, Jane (Marriage - 3 January 1970)

First portion of this marriage was missing on my pages, but by reading some Neillsville news excerpts, I found a clue to who’s wedding, but sorry we are missing, where it took place and who the minister was and who the parents of the couple were and all about the bride’s wedding gown. But I will give you what I have. Sorry!

Miss Laura Rezab of Mason City, Ia., served as maid-of-honor. Mrs. Cheryl Kienzle of Marshfield, sister of the bride, Miss Becky Slaats of Cuba City, sister of the groom, and Miss Carol Feig of Madison, were bridesmaids. The attendants wore floor-length gowns of plum velvet, styled with standup collars of white lace, elbow-length sleeves and high waists banded in white lace. Each carried a large lavender ‘mum.

Jack Guler of Platteville was bestman. Groomsmen were Glen Slaats of La Crosse, brother of the groom; Tim Harvey of Neillsville and Forest Grove, Ore., brother of the bride; and Dave Lucas of Wisconsin Dells. Ushers were Mike Slaats of Cuba City, brother of the groom; and Mike Kerr of Chicago, Ill.

“Theme from Romeo and Juliet” was sung by Greg Kienzle of Marshfield, who was accompanied at the organ by Miss Eileen Zank.

About 150 guests attended the wedding reception at Bali Hai supper club.

The bride, a 1976 Neillsville High School graduate, attended Wisconsin State University-La Crosse and is employed as assistant manager at the Remembrance Shop in La Crosse.

The groom, a former Peace Corps volunteer to Ceylon, is a graduate of Waldorf College in Iowa, and is attending Wisconsin State University-La Crosse where he is a representative of student government and representative of united council. He is a member of Alpha Phi Omega fraternity; student government, and student newspaper.

After a short wedding trip into northern Minnesota, the couple will reside at 3843 Mormon Coulee Road, La Crosse.
