Burhop, Diane A. (16 JUL 1966)

A double ring ceremony during a Nuptial mass Saturday, July 16, 1966 at 1 p.m. in St. Katherine's Episcopal Church at Owen united Miss Diane Alye Burhop and Robert Alois Prock.

The Rev. Richard Hewetson, pastor, officiated, and and Miss Sharon Heiderman was organist, and also accompanied Lawrence LeFerve as he sang "Lord, Who at Cana's Wedding Feast," "Our Father by Whose Name" and " Be Thou with Them."

The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Burhop of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.) was given in marriage by her father to the son of Mr. and Mrs. Al Prock of Owen. The church altar was decorated with white galdioli, carnations and two candelabra entwined with ferns.

For her wedding, Miss Burhop wore a floor length empire bridal gown of organza featuring lantern sleeves of hand-clipped Chantilly lace. The A-line skirt was highlighted by a deep border of lace and had a detachable train which swept to chapel length. A cascade of Alencon lace petals embellished with seed pearls and aurora organza rose held her bouffant elbow-length veil. She carried three long stemmed pink roses tied with white ribbon.

Miss Shirley Peterson of Withee served as maid of honor, while Mrs. Joseph Switzky, Madison, Mrs. William Pawlak, Eau Claire, and Miss Jane Westerndorf, Withee, served as bridesmaids. Roland Woodbeck, Owen, served as best man in the groom's party, while Mr. Switzky, Mr. Pawlak and Alan Burhop of Owen were groomsmen. Ronald Stasek and Kenneth Thorson ushered.

The bridal aides wore floor length sheaths of hawthorne green crepe accented at the empire waist with lighter green venetian lace. Open pill-boxes encircled with Venetian lace and bouffant veils and each aide carrying a sing long stemmed pink rose completed the ensembles.

After the church ceremonies dinner was served in the church hall and a reception took place at Prock's 19th Hole.

The new Mrs. Prock is a 1964 graduate of Owen-Withee High School, from which her husband graduated in 1962. She is a junior student at Wis. State University, Eau Claire, and he is employed in that city by the U.S. Rubber Co.

After returning from a trip to the Black Hills area of South Dakota, they will make their home in Eau Claire at 2714 Blakeley Av.
