Schwarze, Eileen (3 SEP 1960)

The Holy Family Catholic Church at Willard was the setting of the marriage of Eileen Schwarze, Milwaukee, and Charles Krapf Jr., Hales Corners, on Saturday, September 3, 1960 at 10:00 o'clock. The Rev. Aloyus Madic officiated at the ceremony. Mrs. Frank Lamovec was organist and the church choir sang "Ave Maria" and "On This Day." The altar was decorated with white gladiolas.

Parents of the bride are Mr. and Mrs. Ewald Schwarze, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), and the groom's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Charles Krapf Sr., Greenwood.

The bride, entering the church on the arm of her father, wore a gown of Chantilly lace over satin, styled by a Queen Anne collar trimmed with iridescent sequins and pearls, long tapered sleeves and the skirt ending in a train. A small headpiece of tulle with sequin trim held her fingertip veil, which was enhanced by lace appliques. Her bouquet was comprised of white roses, chrysanthemums and ivy.

Miss Frances Koschak, a cousin of the groom, was maid of honor. Bridesmaids were the groom's two sisters, Miss Betty Krapf, Greenwood, and Mrs. Theresa Zorman, Loyal, and Mrs. Darlene Mitchel, Milwaukee, and Mrs. Rosalie Plautz, Hales Corners.

They wore white dresses of embossed over taffeta with green, yellow, pink, orchid and blue trim respectively. Their headpieces were in petal shape with blusher veils and all carried matching bouquets of carnations and white feathered mums.

Philip Plautz, Milwaukee, attended the groom as best man. Groomsmen were the bride's two brothers, Donald Schwarze, Beaver Dam, and Stanley Schwarze, Greenwood, and Edward Zorman, Loyal, and Paul Plautz, Hales Corners.

A dinner was served to about 300 guests. A reception, supper and dance were held in the church hall.

Mr. and Mrs. Krapf are both graduates of Greenwood High School. The bride attended Spencerian Business College and is employed as teletype operator by Schlitz Brewing Co. of Milwaukee. The groom is employed by the R. Frederic Trucking Co., Brookfield.

They are making their home at 1211 S. 72nd St., West Allis.
