Powell, Susan (9 FEB 1957)

On Saturday, Feb. 9, 1957, at St. Rose's Catholic Church, Clintonville, Wis., Miss Susan Powell, daughter of Mrs. Lloyd Hidde, Clintonville, and John Powell, Menasha, became the bride of Edward J. Klune, Appleton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Klune, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.). Rev. Father J. Murphy was celebrant of the 10:30 a.m. nuptial Mass and double ring ceremony. The Junior choir sang the Mass.

As the bride approached the altar on the arm of her father, she was attired in a floor length gown of tulle and lace over satin, designed with a fitted bodice and long pointed sleeves. The tulle yoke and cowl neckline were detailed with rosettes of iridescent sequins. Lace and tiny seed pearls trimmed the tulle half hat, to which was attached a fingertip veil. She carried a cascade arrangement of blue carnations centered with two white orchids.

Miss Jeanne Walsh, a friend, as maid of honor, wore a blue chapel length frock of Chantilly lace over taffeta. The fitted bodice featured a velvet yoke and cowl neckline. Her bouquet was of yellow and white carnations. The bride presented her attendants with pearl earrings as gifts.

The bridesmaids were Miss Jeanne Fisher and Miss Joanne Hoffman, friends, and Mrs. Bruce Thiel, Greenwood, sister of the groom. They wore dresses of cotillion blue styled the same as the maid of honor, and carried bouquets of yellow and white carnations.
