Grottke, Vicki Sue (Marriage - 26 August 1972)

High school classmates, Miss Vicki Sue Grottke and Patrick John Bauer, were married Saturday afternoon, August 26, in a double-ring ceremony, performed at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church by the Rev. Norman Lindloff. Wedding day events also included a reception at the American legion Hall.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Walter Grottke of Rt. 3 Neillsville, and Mr. and Mrs. Edwin J. Bauer of Neillsville. The bride’s father presented her in marriage.

The former Miss Grottke appeared in a gown of silk-like peau trimmed with imported pearls and Chantilly lace and styled with bishop sleeves and a lower lace ruffle. She carried a white orchid surrounded by stephanotis.

Maid of honor Barbara Kren of Minneapolis, Mn, carried a basket of bronze and yellow daisies. Baskets of yellow and white daisies were carried by bridesmaids Nancy Bauer of Menomonie, Sandy Bauer of Neillsville and Sherry Rosenbecker of Menomonee Falls. The bridal attendants wore old-fashioned gowns with tucked and ruffled bodices in shades of gold, lilac, orange and green, respectively. Matching wide-brimmed hats completed their costumes.

Dave Bieneck served as bestman. Groomsmen were Michael Bauer of Fall Creek, Bernie Langreck of Freeport, Ill., and Jim Cummesford of Milwaukee. Guests were seated by Denis Steltenpohl of Greenwood and Roy Bieneck.

Jimmie Schlinsog of Marshfield was the ringbearer and Amy Nickel of Nekoosa was the flowergirl.

Soloist Edward Schoenherr was accompanied by Victor Lehmann.

The newlyweds are both 1971 graduates of Neillsville high School. Following a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, they will make their home in Rantoul, Ill. The groom is a heating specialist with the air force.
