Williams, Nancy Kay (6 MAY 1967)

Nazareth Lutheran Church at Withee was the setting for the marriage ceremony uniting Miss Nancy Kay Williams and Mr. Erich J. Daum on may 6, 1967. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Harold V. Williams of route 1, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. and Mrs. Oswald Daum of Hof/Seale, Germany.

Rev. H.W. Luetkehoelter officiated at the 2:00 p.m. ceremony. Mrs. Bunee Schultz, accompanied at the organ by Mrs. Dorothy Rabska, who also played the processional and recessional, sang "Wedding Prayer" and "The Lord's Prayer."

The bride, given in marriage by her father, chose a floor length sheath of organza over taffeta, fashioned with three-quarter length sleeves and a demure scoop neckline. An overlay of Chantilly lace graced the font of the town, while a detachable cut away overskirt swept into a chapel train. Her bouffant veil of pure silk illusion was secured to a petite crown featuring arches of pearl. She carried a cascade arrangement of cymbidium orchids and stephanotis scented with ivy.

Miss Mavis Williams of rural Withee, served as her sister's maid of honor, and Miss LaVerne Kubica of Chicago was the bridesmaid. They carried cascade bouquets of champagne carnations and ivy, while wearing floor length empire sheets of peau taffeta in Nile green, fashioned with mantle coats. Their bustle veils were secured to floral cloches accented with pearlized buds.

The miniature bride, Miss Peggy Karaba, wore an ensemble and carried a floral arrangement similar to the bride's. She was escorted by Master Ricky Kubica of Chicago, the miniature groom.

Serving as best man was Richard Jackson, Owen, and as groomsman was Mr. Ronald Williams, Milwaukee. The ushers who seated the guests and lighted the candles were Mr. Ronald Hamirck, Minocqua and Mr. Robert McMillan, Wausau.

Wedding festivities continued at St. Hedwig's Hall near Thorp, where a reception followed the ceremony. A supper was served to 230 guests and a dance was held in the evening from 8:00 to 12:00.

After graduation from Owen-Withee High School until the present, the bride was employed by Frederick Post Company of Owen as a payroll and insurance clerk.

The groom, having received both his basic and engineering education in Germany, is now working as an Industrial Engineer for Mobil Oil Corporation, being assigned to their st. Paul, Minnesota office.

Following a brief honeymoon to northern Minnesota resort, the newlyweds will be residing at 3512 Minikahda Court, Minneapolis, Minn.
