Szymanski, Josephine (24 MAY 1969)

On Saturday, May 24, 1969, at 11 o'clock at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Owen, Josephine Szymanski, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Felix Szymanski, route 1, Withee (Clark Co., Wis.0, became the bride of Donald Ruder, son of Mrs. Barbara Ruder and the late Phillip Ruder, Marshfield. Father H.L. Crubel performed the ceremony and the music was by the Children's Choir.

As the bride approached the altar with her father, she wore a Chantilly lace waisted gown with a nylon over taffeta full skirt. A chapel train fell from the shoulders. A double crown of pearls and crystal held the silk veil. She carried a graceful cascade miniature white, pink and yellow carnations with a lovely white orchid centering the bouquet.

The bride's attendants were Mrs. Ronald Machtan of Marshfield, the matron of honor, and Mrs. Pete Skille of Gilman, bridesmaid.

They were attired in floor length empire "country girl" formals with white lace bodice and chiffon skirts over taffeta, and wide satin sashes. They had matching double crown of lace pearl and crystal with short veils. The matron of honor carried a cascade of pink and white carnations with ivy, and the maid of honor had yellow flowers. Each matched the color of their dresses.

Miss Pam Ruder, Marshfield, was the miniature bride, and Allen Szymanksi, Marshfield, served as ring bearer.

The groom asked Charles Ruder of Sheboygan to be his best man and Pete Skille of Gilman as his groomsman. Ushering were John Szymanski, Marshfield and Tom Ruder of Sheboygan.

Following the ceremony a dinner at the church hall, and reception, supper and dance took place at the eagle's Hall in Marshfield.

Mrs. Ruder is a 1954 graduate of Withee High School and is employed at the Weinbrenner Shoe Factory in Marshfield. Her husband graduated the same year from the Marshfield High School and is a dairy farmer.

The couple will be making their home on route 4, Marshfield, after a wedding trip to Upper Michigan.
