Leahy, Kathleen (17 JUN 1967)

At a nuptial mass repeated at 12 o'clock Miss Kathleen Leahy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Leahy, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), became the bride of James A. Majka, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Petrauska, Withee. Father H.L. Crubel presided at the Mass conducted at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen, on Saturday, June 17th, 1967.

When escorted to the altar by her father, the bride wore a floor length organza bridal gown of floral designs, fashioned with short sleeves and scalloped neckline. Her flowing train was a part of a coat styled over the bridal gown. Her headpiece was an organza bow, from which her illusion veil was attached. She carried a bouquet of lilies.

Attending the bride as matron of honor was her sister, Mrs. Ann Meek, with bridesmaids being Suzanne Svenson and Patricia Christopherson, both friends of the bride.

They wore long flowing yellow crepe dresses with semi-empire style skirts. Their headpieces were of live flowers and they carried bouquets of daisies and baby's breath.

Attending the grooms as best man was his brother, Jerry Majka, with groomsmen Richard Majka and Gordon Rosenbrook.

Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was held at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Petauska on their farm northwest of Withee. A 6:30 dinner was served to 225 guests at St. Hedwig's Hall at Thorp, followed by a dance with music played by relatives of the groom.

The bride is a 1965 graduate of Owen-Withee High School, attended WSU, River Falls for one year, and is presently employed as a secretary at the University of Minnesota at Minneapolis.

The groom is a 1963 graduate of the Owen-Withee school system, attended WSU, River Falls, and is now a junior at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota.

The newlyweds will make their future home at 2030 Brewster Ave., St. Paul, Minn.
