Troz, JoAnn Marie (14 AUG 1971)

Our Savior’s Lutheran Church was the setting chosen by Miss JoAnn Marie Troz as she exchanged vows on August 14, 1971 with Arnold C. Roytek. The Rev. Carl Peters officiated at the double ring ceremony before an altar decorated with bouquets of white mums and yellow gladioli. White satin bows were used on the pews of the church. Janet Booth was the soloist and Roxanne Mortensen the organist.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. John Troz and Mr. and Mrs. Chester Roytek, all of route 3, Stanley.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a floor length empire gown of embroidered organza fashioned with long traditional pointed sleeves and a mandarin neckline. Venice lace traced the A-line silhouette, highlighted by a sweeping chapel train. A cluster of embroidered miniature pearls secured her bouffant veil, and she carried a bouquet of white mums with green tinted carnations and yellow baby roses.

Mrs. Patricia Theirl, sister of the bride, was matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Mrs. Charlene Roytek, Mrs. Sue Roytek, and Miss Carol Sauer. They wore floor length dresses of lime chiffon, featuring bishop sleeves and high necklines. Flattering ruffles accented the hemlines of the softly gathered skirts, and multi-colored embroidery on bands of velvet highlighted the peasant styling. Bows secured their matching short veils, and they carried white and lightly tinted green carnations in baskets.

The groom’s niece, Julie Roytek, was the floer girl, wearing a white floor length gown of embroidered organza styled like that of the bride, and a miniature bridal bouquet in a basket.

Rodney Roytek, brother of the groom, was best man, and groomsmen were Kenneth Theirl, Gordon Roytek, and Harry Schultze. Ushers were Gary Troz and James Olson.

A reception was held following the ceremony at the Stanley Auditorium, with 400 guests in attendance. Green, white and yellow streamers and wedding bells were used in the decor.

Mrs. Troz wore a light blue sleeveless embroidered knit dress and Mrs. Roytek chose a gray and white knit dress for the occasion.

Mrs. Donna Olson and Miss Jeanette Gruba cut the cake. Misses Barb Theirl and Beth Baker assisted with the gifts, and Mrs. Patricia Mathison was in charge of the guest book.

Following a week’s wedding trip to Grand Marais, Minnesota, the young couple is making their home at 1731 Goff Avenue, Eau Claire.

The bride is a graduate of Stanley-Boyd High School and Stevens Point Vocation School, and is a licensed Practical Nurse at Sacred Heart Hospital, Eau Claire. The groom also graduated from Stanley-Boyd High School and is a pressman at Ashbaugh Printing, Eau Claire.

Guests were present from Eau Claire, Madison, Chippewa Falls, Thorp, Iowa, Chicago and the area.
