Scherr, Rometta (25 JUN 1960)

Ronald G. Goetsch and his bride, Miss Rometta Scherr, after their marriage June 25, 1960, are spending their honeymoon in northern Wisconsin. Their new home will be at 911 N. First Ave., Wausau.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Goetsch, Town of Texas, and the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Scherr, 2513 Gowen St., repeated their marriage vows after the Very Rev. John J. Krasowski in St. Michael's Catholic Church.

After the 12:30 p.m. ceremony the young people, their bridal party, relatives and friends, numbering about 135, gathered at the American Legion Clubhouse. Dinner followed the reception and in the evening a reception and dancing were held at the Colonial Ballroom for 200 guests.

For her marriage the petite bride chose a gown of exquisite organza over taffeta, appliqued with leaf motifs around the scoop neckline and in the full skirt, extending into a chapel train. The brief sleeves were shirred to the neckline.

The fingertip bridal veil of illusion was held in place by a dainty crown of pearls and rhinestones. She carried a cascading arrangement of stephanotis surrounding a white cattelya orchid.

As Mr. Scherr escorted his daughter into the church, Peter Knippel, the organist, played "Procession in C," by Rossini. The soloist, Miss Carolyn Anerson, offered "Ave Maria," by Schubert, during the ceremony. She and Mr. Knippel together sang "Heart of Jesus, Meek and Mild."

Powder blue embroidery and matching cummerbunds accented the white organza Frocks worn by the bridal aides. Miss Margaret An Scherr was her sister's maid of honor, and the bridesmaids were Miss Carrie Goetsch, sister of the groom, and Mrs. Donald Ott, close friend of the bride, all of this city.

Scoop necklines and cap sleeves styled the frocks. They wore blue slippers and in their hair wore blue silk petal caps, highlighted with pearls and halo veils. Their crystal and pearl earrings were the bride's gifts.

Miss Scherr carried pink sweetheart roses and white Sims carnations tied in white, and the others identical bouquets were tied in blue satin.

Best man for Mr. Goetsch was Thomas Tremel, Wausau, and groomsmen were Rodney Goetsch, Merrill, and Donald Ott.

Ushers were Norman Foth and James Sieckert, both of Wausau.

In places of honor for the rites were the bride's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Heggelund, Marshfield, and Mr. and Mrs. Peter Scherr, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis., and the groom's grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Emil Wieland and Mr. and Mrs. Emil Goetsch, all of Wausau.

The Misses Gladys Sheptoski and Jeanne Sherfinski, Wausau, friends of the bride, and Miss Nancy Martin, Marshfield, and Miss Donna Herrick, Greenwood, the bride's cousins, presided at the punch table during the reception.

The guests present were from Durand, Marshfield, Milwaukee, Merrill, Greenwood, Appleton and this area; Little Falls and Rochester, Minn.; Rockford and Glenview, Ill.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Goetsch are Wausau Senior High School graduates. Mrs. Goetasch is employed here by the Employers Mutual and her husband by Anderson Brothers and Johnson Co.
