Capelle, Kathleen (Marriage - 30 June 1972)

The lawn of James and Victoria Conkey home in the town of Dewhurst was the setting Saturday for the marriage of Miss Kathleen Capelle and Gary Johnson. The groom is director of the Clark County department of social services and his bride is a social worker in that department. County Judge Michael W. Brennan officiated at the 2 p.m. double-ring ceremony.

Parents of the newlyweds are Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Capelle of Menomonee Falls and Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Johnson of Rt. 1 Almena. The former Miss Capelle wore a gown of white Serano fashioned with a scoop neckline and a gathered skirt trimmed in sunburst and flowered braid. She carried a bouquet of yellow and white daisies and baby’s breath as she was given in marriage by her father.

Mr. and Mrs. Conkey served as witnesses. Mrs. Conkey’s full-length gown of blue and white cotton and polyester was accented by a nosegay of yellow roses and baby’s breath.

Guests were seated by Chris Capelle, brother of the bride, and Brian Carr, nephew of the groom.

Music was composed and sung by Stanley Witkin.

An afternoon reception on the patio of the Conkey home was followed by an evening dinner at Bali Hai supper club.

The bride is a 1970 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where she was affiliated with Alpha Xi Delta sorority. Her husband received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His fraternity is Kappa Delta Phi.

The newlyweds are making their home on Rt. 2 Neillsville. They plan a fly-in hunting and fishing trip to Canada in the fall.
