Connie Irene Townsend, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Townsend, R. 1, Readstown, Wis., and Michael Joseph Rakovec, son of Mr. and Mrs. Cyril Rakovec, R. 2, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), were united in marriage on Saturday, November 4, 1972, at 1 p.m., at Holy Family Parish, Willard, Wis. Father Michael Mertens officiated at the nuptial ceremony and Ann Lamovec accompanied the soloist Helen Horn. The choir also sang.

For her wedding, Miss Townsend chose a white satin gown covered with white lace, with a natural waistline, lace sleeves and cuff. Five flounces of lace covered the train which fell from a Camelot style headpiece. She carried a round bouquet of roses and wine star flowers.

Miss LeAnn Tolzmann, Withee, as maid of honor, and Miss Loana Townsend and Alenda Townsend, both of Readstown, as bridesmaids, wore wine colored gowns with pink and white lace sleeves and carried bouquets of pin roses and white star flowers.

Ed Kollmansberger, Loyal, served as best man, with Gene Rakovec, Greenwood, and Dale Severson, Greenwood, as groomsmen.

Ushering were David Susa and Cyril Rakovec Jr.

A dinner was served at 3 p.m., with a reception at 4 p.m. A dance was held at Willard.

Mrs. Rakovec graduated from Kickapoo High School and Wester Wisconsin Technical Institute, and her husband is a 1971 graduate of Greenwood High School, and is employed as a welder at Roth Manufacturing, Loyal.

After a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin, they will make their home at R. 1, Loyal.
