Sternitzky, Bonnie L. (Marriage - 1 December 1973)

Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Sternitzky, Rt. 1 Granton, presented their daughter, Miss Bonnie L. Sternitzky of Minneapolis, Mn., in marriage to Daniel C. Boyum of Inver Grove Heights, Mn, on Saturday at Zion Lutheran Church, Granton. The groom is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Boyum.

Officiating at the 3 p.m. ceremony was the Rev. Elfred T. Keller of Pittsville and Rev. Stanley Aukema of Marshfield. The organist was David Boyum. Soloist Carleen Sillampa sang “I’ll Walk with God” and “The lord’s Prayer.” A reception was held at Bali Hai supper club.

For her marriage, the bride chose a gown of white velvet. The bodice formed a V-neckline at the front and at the back, and was accented by lace edging trim to match lace trim at the empire waistline and sleeves. A fingertip mantilla veil and a bouquet of purple and white roses and carnations completed her ensemble.

White lace also trimmed the waistline, neck and sleeves of the purple velvet gowns worn by Mrs. Betty Baxter of Columbus, Matron of honor, and by Mrs. Barbara Teter of Granton, Mrs. Rhoda Sternitzky of Granton and Mrs. Joan Tavares of Minneapolis, bridesmaids. Each carried a white rose with a purple ribbon.

Pedro Tavares, Minneapolis, served as bestman. Groomsmen were Gary Carolyn of Austin, Mn., Ernest Sternitzky of Granton and David Jensen of St. Paul, Mn. Guests were seated by Dale Teter of Granton, Jeff Baxter of Columbus and Robert Laufle and Richard Haney of St. Paul.

The new Mrs. Boyum attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and graduated from the Minneapolis Vocational School of Nursing in 1970. She is employed at Fairview-Southdale Hospital. Her husband graduated from Mankato State College in 19666 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and industrial arts. He is employed by a supermarket chain.

The newlyweds will make their home at 3994 Craig Way, Inver Grove Heights, Mn. They will join a Caribbean cruise in January for a wedding trip.
