Kociuba, Jane E. (20 MAY 1967)

Marriage vows were recited by Jane Ellen Kociuba and Avid B. Polnaszek at 11 a.m., May 20, 1967 in St. Joseph's Church, Joliet.

Rev. Donald Pock performed the rites uniting the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Kociuba, 1204 Nicholson, Joliet, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Polnaszek of Thorp (Clark Co.), Wis.

Escorted by her father to the altar, the bride wore a toe-touching gown of white Chiara crepe with garlands of Venice lace flowers encircling the neckline, three-quarter length sleeves and empire bodice that continued into a slim "A" line skirt. The Watteau panel train was worn for the ceremony and removed for the reception. Her imported silk illusion veiling was worn shoulder length and held by a headpiece of handmade daisies and sprays of lilies of the valley. The bride carried a long cascade of white daisies and ivy centered by a white orchid. She wore pearl earrings and a strand of pearls.

Maid of honor was Miss Paulette Pucel, and bridesmaid was Miss Cheryl Kruger of Minneapolis, Minn. They wore toe-touching empire sheaths of Jonquil yellow chiffon offset by chiffon panels and organza lace trim at the waistline. Both wore headpieces of chiffon petals of maline flowerlets releasing puofs of maline. Miss Pucel carried a cascade of white and yellow daisies and entwined ivy, while Miss Krueger carried a cascade of yellow daisies and ivy. Each wore a pearl and gold necklace, gift of the bride.

Eric Polnaszek, brother of the bridegroom, was best man, and ushers were Larry Bandor and Larry Stukel.

A reception followed at the Avon Inn. Assisting at the guest book was Miss Carol Polnaszek, sister of the bridegroom.

The bride's mother chose a dress and jacket of aqua silk shantung, silver shoes and purse, aqua net hat and a corsage of white orchids. The bridegroom's mother slected a dress of blue silk with white lace jacket, blue flowered hat, white shoes and accessories and a corsage of white orchids.

For a trip to the northern states, the new Mrs. Polnaszek chose an "A" line dress of white lace and chiffon, white accessories and an orchid corsage. Mr. Polnaszek is now stationed in Taiwan, where the bride will join him at a later date. Mrs. Polnaszek is now residing at the home of her parents.
