Wagener, Carol (24 OCT 1964)

The Rt. Rev. Msgr. Anthony P. Wagener of LaCrosse officiated at a marriage ceremony Saturday, Oct. 24, at St. Hedwig’s Catholic Chapel in Thorp, where vows were repeated by Miss Carol Jean Wegener, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Wagener, and Loren Arthur Quelle, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Quelle, Sr., all of Route 3, Greenwood.

Mr. Wagener gave his daughter in marriage. St. Hedwig’s Choir sang for the ceremony, for which the altar was decorated with bouquets of assorted colored chrysanthemums.

The bride wore a full-length white gown of oriental silk over taffeta; the neckline and skirt were edged with Chantilly lace. Her veil was attached to a pearl crown and she carried a bouquet of white feathered carnations and roses.

Mrs. Patricia Schrank of Madison, a sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and Miss Suzanne Wagener, Route 3, Greenwood, a sister, was the bridesmaid. Both carried roses and wore full-length frocks of royal blue brocade.

Christine M. Wagner was the flower girl and Tommy Kind of Marshfield, the ring bearer.

Alvin Quelle, Marshfield, was asked to be best man and Jerold Quelle of North Dakota, the groomsman. Ushering were Joey Schrank and Roy Quelle, Jr.

The wedding dinner and reception were held at the Thorp Legion Hall for approximately 300 wedding guests. They came from Fredonia, Milwaukee, Marshfield, Neillsville, Owen, Withee, Thorp, Eau Claire, Chippewa Fallas, Curtiss, Unity, Colby, Wauwautosa, Jim Falls, Butler and Rochester, Minnesota.

The new matron, who graduated this year from Owen-Withee High School, is employed by the Farm Bureau Insurance Co., Madison, where she and her husband will live at 2858 Badlow St.
