----Kramas Doris ( 14 NOV 1964)


Married in Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Owen, Saturday, November 14, at 10:30 a.m. by the Rev. Hubert L. Crubel were Miss Doris Jean Kramas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul A. Kramas of Curtiss, and James Edward Meyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Meyer, Dorchester. Mr. Kramas gave his daughter in marriage.

Yellow chrysanthemums decorated the altar for the ceremony at which the church choir sang. Out-of-town guests attending the wedding came from Chicago, Milwaukee, Thorp, Stanley, Medford, Dorchester, Park Falls, Wausau, Abbotsford, Curtiss, and the surrounding area.

Seating the guests in church were David Kramas of Stanley and Dennis Gonnering, Dorchester.

The wedding dress had a bell-shaped softly pleated skirt and the bodice had an oval neckline. Extensions forming draped ties looped at the back and the skirt ended in a long train.

Her train-length veil was worn with a flower cluster crown and her bouquet included a white orchid with white daisy chrysanthemums.

Miss Mary Meyer, Dorchester, was the maid of honor while Miss Celine Geiger, Abbotsford, and Misses Joanne and Louise Kramas, both of Curtiss, were the bridesmaids.

They wore royal blue floor-length gowns made with scoop necklines and softly pleated skirts. Hats accented with large bows completed their attire and each aide carried a crescent-shaped bouquet of yellow chrysanthemums and pompons.

Gerald Gonnering, Dorchester was best man and Paul Kramas, Curtiss, the groomsman.

The wedding breakfast in the church hall followed the ceremony. At 2:00 p.m. the reception was held at the Curtiss Hall and dinner was served at 4:30 p.m. in the church hall. In the evening there was dancing to music by the Pol-Katz.

Mrs. Meyer, a 1962 graduate of Dor-Abby High School, has been employed by Hardware Mutuals of Wausau (Westside) and her husband, who was graduated in 1961 from Dorchester High School, works for Bootzin’s at Stetsonville. The Meyers will live in rural Dorchester.
