Looker, Janet Darlene (Marriage - 2 March 1974)

Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen, was the setting for the March 2 wedding of Miss janet Darlene Looker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Looker of Rt. 1 Withee, and Jeffrey Joseph Greschner, son of Mrs. Joseph Greschner of Owen and the late Mr. Greschner.

The Rev. George Becker officiated at the 1:30 p.m. ceremony, which was followed by a dinner reception in the church parlors. That evening, a dance at the American Legion Hall honored the newlyweds.

Presents in marriage by her parents, the former Miss Looker appeared in a gown of white satin with an overlay of sheer organza. Victorian lace fashioned the yoke and high collar, and wide bands of lace traversed the full length of the gown and the sleeves. A lace ruffle formed the hemline. Lace also formed the headpiece, holding a sheer nylon veil and full-length train edged with lace.

A sister of the bride, Mrs. Linda Panko of Toledo, Oh, was her matron of honor. Bridesmaids were another sister, Mrs. Paul Abley of Barron, and a friend, Miss Debi Geist of Stanley. Their high-necked gowns were styled with ruffled, blue-flowered overskirts open in back to reveal solid blue underskirts.

Michael Greschner, brother of the groom, served as bestman. Groomsmen were Richard Kincaid and Rodney Porath. Dennis Looker, brother of the bride and Tom Greschner, cousin of the groom, shared ushering duties.

A 1971 graduate of Owen-Withee High School, the bride spent from July of that year until the following July as an AFS program student in Belgium. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for a year, and has been employed recently by a Thorp insurance firm. Her husband also graduated from Owen-Withee High School; he attended the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Presently, he is engaged in farming.

Following their return from a wedding trip to Florida, the couple will live on the groom’s farm at Longwood.
