Laabs, Patricia A. (24 Jun 1967)

Miss Patricia A. Laabs became the bride of Charles J. Rosciam at St. Paul’s Lutheran church, Curtiss, on June 24.  Rev. Roger Tellock performed the 2 p.m. ceremony.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Laabs of Curtiss and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Leikett of 12771 Lauder, Detroit, Mich.

Miss Janet Porter, Oshkosh, friend of the bride was the maid of honor.  Sister of the groom, Miss Ricki Rosciam, Detroit, served as bridesmaid, and Debby Goff, Milwaukee, cousin of the bride was her flower girl.  Joel Miller, Oshkosh, a friend, was best man, and the groomsman was Steve Laabs, Curtiss, brother of the bride.

The bride was attired in a gown of ivory silk organza with a scoop neckline.  The contoured basque was accented at the empire waist line with rose point lace.  Lace appliques also trimmed the sheath and court train which was attached at the shoulders.  Her two tier ivory bouffant veil fell from a plateau of seed pearls.  The bridal bouquet was of white roses and ivy.

The bride’s attendants wore floor length formals of pale pink organza and taffeta, with empire waist and A-line skirts.  They carried tinted pink mums in a colonial bouquet.

Organist during the ceremony was Pamela Radtke.  Bruce Klocke sang the Lord’s Prayer and Wedding Prayer.

Reception and dinner for 120 guest was held at the Colby Hotel.  Out of town guest present were Mr. and Mrs. W. Leikett and Scott, Miss Barbara Rosciam, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Birney, Mr. and Mrs. H. Ziessow, all of New Mexico; Mrs. Carl Cerment, Lakeville, Ill., and Mr. and Mrs. James Laabs of Bay City, Mich.

The bride, a June graduate of WSU at Oshkosh, will be teaching in the Appleton public school system this fall.  The groom is in the US navy.
