Potocnik, Judith Ann (6 MAY 1967)

Exchanging marriage promises during a double ring ceremony on May 6th, 1967, at Christ Lutheran Church at Abbotsford were Miss Judith Ann Potocnik and James Harold Pfalzgraf, both of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.). Rev. F.H. Sprengler performed the two p.m. ceremony. Mrs. Karen Paulsen was organist and accompanist for the soloist, the Rev. Robert Olson of Thorp, who sang "The Lord's Prayer" and "Crown of Thy Benediction."

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Rudy Potocnik, Owen, and Mr. and Mrs. Harold Pfalzgraf, Abbotsford.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, chose for her wedding, a floor length bridal gown of gleaming satin, styled with long traditional tapered sleeves and a demure scoop neckline. An overlay of Chantilly lace graced the fitted bodice and the semi-bouffant skirt, which swept into a chapel train.

Lace and crystal adorned the double crown securing her bouffant veil of sheer illusion. She carried a bouquet of deep pink tea roses, trailing ivy and feathered mums.

In the wedding party were: Mrs. Barbara Mortenson, Madison, matron of honor; Mrs. Barbara Lemanski of Watertown, Mrs. Darlene Dyra of Chicago, Ill., Miss Rita Schrier of Stanley and Miss Kathy Pfalzgraf, Kenosha, bridesmaids. The bridal aides wore floor length dresses featuring sleeveless bodice of white cluny lace over moss green taffeta. A band of moss green satin highlighted the fitted waistlines on the white chiffon draped skirts. Their bouffant bustle veils were secured to a cluster of sheer petals. They carried crescent shaped bouquet s of pink carnations and tea roses.

Richard Lemanski, Watertown, was best man, and groomsmen were: Lon Mortenson, Madison, John Dyra, Chicago, Ill., Kenneth Pfalzgraf, Clovis, New Mexico, and Gary Potocnik of Owen. Ushers were: Jerry Fehlen, Abbotsford and Dennis Potocnik, Owen.

The new Mrs. Pfalzgraf has been employed as a private secretary for the Thorp Finance Corp., Thorp, where Mr. Pfalzgraf is manager of the Thorpedo Restaurant.

A wedding dinner was served in the church parlors and a dance took place that night at Sportsman's Park. After returning from a wedding trip to California, the couple will reside in Thorp.
