Ogurek, Shirley C. (26 AUG 1967)

The altar of St. Mary's Assumption Church, Lublin was decorated with apricot and white gladiolas given by the bride's aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Anton Gulcynski, for the marriage of Miss Shirley Clara Ogurek and James Orvin Evrard on Saturday, Aug. 26, 1967. Rev. Mathew Buba performed the 2:30 p.m. marriage ceremony. Miss Vickie Sluzewski was soloist and Mrs. Stanley Hucker was organist.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Mayland Ogurek, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. and Mrs. Orvin Evrard of Oconto Falls.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, was seen in a white Serano empire gown, made by the groom's mother, Mrs. Orvin Evrard, styled with lace on sleeves and waist. Her train, also trimmed in lace, hung from the waist. The silk illusion veil was gathered from a pillbox headpiece, trimmed with seed pearls. She carried a "line of beauty" bouquet of eucharis lilies and orange roses with ivy.

Miss Barbara Ogurek, the bride's sister, was maid of honor, wearing a frosty green serrano empire gown. Miss Mary Riesinger and Miss Mary Evrard were bridesmaids, wearing gowns identical to the maid of honor, only in apricot. Each wore matching headpieces with seed pearls and carried casual clusters of white pompons and orange roses.

Thomas Evrard was best man, and groomsmen were: Kenneth Stallman and Robert Ogurek. Ushers were: Edward Stroinski and Larry Alexander.

A reception following dinner at 4:30 p.m. was held at the church hall, with a dance in the evening at the Thorp American Legion Hall.

The bride is a 1965 graduate of Wausau Technical Institute and is employed with the University of Wis., Madison. The groom is a 1964 B.S. graduate of the University of Wis., and is a graduate students teaching assistant.

After a wedding trip to Ontario, Canada and Michigan, the new couple will make their home in Madison.
