Sternitzky, Gloria Ann (Marriage - 10 November 1973)

Marriage vows were pledged Saturday, November 10, at Zion Lutheran Church, Granton, by Miss Gloria Ann Sternitzky of Wisconsin Rapids and Mark Steven Stimac of Champaign, Il. The Rev. Roland Roehrs officiated at the 4 p.m. ceremony of the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Sternitzky, Rt. 1 Granton, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Stimac, Jr., Wisconsin Rapids.

Presented in marriage by her father, the bride appeared in a white A-line gown fashioned with a shaped bodice above a natural waistline, sheer overskirt with ruffle, sheer under-bodice at the neckline and sheer lower sleeves gathered at the cuff. Venise lace trimmed the mandarin collar, upper sleeves, bodice and cuffs, and lace edged the collar, sleeves, cuffs, ruffle and bodice. Her floor-length veil trimmed with venise lace was attached to a lace-covered headpiece. She carried an arrangement of red roses, white mum roses, baby’s breath and sprengeri fern.

Attendants included Miss Peggy Hayes, Wisconsin Rapids, as maid of honor and Mrs. David Dix, Marshfield and Mrs. Russell Stimac, Wisconsin Rapids, as bridesmaids. Their dark blue high-waist gowns were styled with a sheer overskirt attached to a fitted velvet bodice, velvet mandarin collar and long, sheer sleeves with velvet cuffs. An appliqué of small dark blue and white flowers trimmed the collar, cuffs and bodice seam. Bouquets of dark blue tinted carnations with white daisy pompons complimented their ensembles.

The groom was attended by Dan Alft as bestman and by Gary Stimac and Russ Stimac as groomsmen. All are of Wisconsin Rapids. Daniel and James Sternitzky served as ushers.

Soloist Sue Dudei was accompanied on the organ by Mrs. Leland Garbisch.

A 5 p.m. reception and buffet supper in the church parlors was followed by a coin shower and a wedding dance at the Holiday Inn, Marshfield.

The new Mrs. Stimac, a 1972 graduate of Mid-State Technical Institute, Wisconsin Rapids, has been employed there as a legal secretary. Her husband graduated from the same school in 1972 ad is employed as a draftsman.

They will live in Champaign, Il.
