Firnstahl, Pamela Ann (24 OCT 1970)

Father Francis Rushman witnessed the wedding vows of Pamela Ann Firnstahl and Michael T. Clark at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Colby Saturday, October 24, 1970, at 1 p.m.

The young people are both from Wausau. Their parents are Mr. and Mrs. James S. Firnstahl of Colby (Clark Co., Wis.), and the John Clark and the late Mrs. Clark of Middleton.

The bride was presented in marriage by her father.

Sister Patricia played the organ at the church, decorated with white gladiolas and bronze and gold mums on the altar. Miss Barbara Meyer of Colby sang "Till" and "One Hand, One Heart." Ave Maria was sung as the couple knelt before the Blessed Virgin after the bride presented a bouquet of white mums to her.

Debby Firnstahl of Colby was the bride's maid of honor for her sister, and the groom's brother-in-law, James Brown of Middleton, was the best man.

Mr. and Mrs. Mark (Sharon) Umhoefer, the bride's brother-in-law and sister, and Mr. and Mrs. Dan Voight of Wausau, friends of the couple, completed the wedding party.

James H. Firnstahl, the bride's brother, and Robert Harris ushered the guests into the church.

Her angel mist taffeta and lace gown was designed with a high neckline, Camelot sleeves, and bouffant skirt. A detachable court train was featured. A Chantilly profile headpiece accent with leaves circle with pearls and crystal details at the center held her four tiered elbow length nylon bouffant veil.

The bride's attendants wore deep purple velvet gowns with empire waists and high necklines banded in white lace. The A-line skirts were floor length. Purple velvet petal profile headpieces held their four tiered nylon bouffant veils. Their cascade arrangement bouquets were made of yellow carnations and mums.

One hundred guests honored the couple at a reception at the Colby City Hall. Dinner was served at St. Mary's gym, and dancing followed at Trianon Ballroom.

The bride graduated from Colby High School in 1969 and attended one semester at North Central Technical Institute. She is employed at the H. Phillips Company in Wausau.

A professional chef at the Hoffman House, the groom attended the Middleton High School and is now attending Antigo Technical School.

Following a wedding trip to Madison, the couple is now living at 1113 Mason Street, Schofield.
