Badzinski, Louella (21 MAY 1966)

The altars of St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Thorp, were decorated with white and pink gladiolas and white mums for the marriage of Miss Louella Badzinski and Donald K. Zahn on Saturday, May 21, 1966. Rev. Francis Brockman performed the eleven a.m. ceremony and High Mass. The High Mass was sung by the children's choir, with Sister M. Anella, O.S.M. as organist.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Louis M. Badzinski, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Zahn, Sullivan, Wis.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a 3-tiered, long embroidered nylon organdy gown, designed by her friend, Mrs. Dan Maurice, featuring empire bodice effect created by white velvet ribbon. A pearl tiara held her silk illusion veil and she carried a hand pick bouquet of white roses and stephanotis and ivy.

Miss Marcy Badzinski was her sister's maid of honor, and bridesmaids were Miss Theresa Czahor and Miss Carol Hoffman, both friends of the bride. They wore long, pale blue brocade sheath with sleeveless, scalloped over blouses. Bouffant veils were held in place by pale blue brocade Dior bows and each carried white lace fans with cymbidium orchids and white carnations.

Joe Ingli, a friend of the groom, was best man and groomsmen were mike Iselin and Doug Klitzkie, also friends of the groom. Ushers were Gary Johnson and Glen Vinz, friends.

A reception for 175 guests was held at St. Bernard's Hall.

The bride, a graduate of Thorp High School and Wis. State University, Eau Claire, is a Spanish teacher with the New London School system as a coach.

After a delayed wedding trip to Arizona, where both will attend graduate school this summer, they will reside at 813 1/2 Smith St., New London, in the fall.
