Folstad, Jane Ann (26 AUG 1972)

Miss Jane Folstad, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Folstad, Stanley (Chippewa Co., Wis.), became the bride of Leonard Gutowski, Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), son of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Gutowski, Stanley, in a one p.m. marriage ceremony performed at Holy Family Catholic Church, Stanley. Reverend Joseph B. Marx officiated at the High Mass and ceremony, on Saturday, August 26th, 1972. The men’s church choir sang.

The bride, given in marriage by her parents, wore a white entrained gown of rayon organza and Venice lace in Juliette style. Her headpiece of Venice lace and seed pearls held her bouffant veil in place, and she carried a bouquet of pink orchids, stephanotis and miniature pink carnations.

Mary Folstad, sister-in-law of the bride, was matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Kaye Gutowski, sister of the groom, and Mary Ann Lechleitner, friend of the bride. They wore fern green gowns of polyester crepe and carried bouquets of white carnations with tinted green stephanotis and baby’s breath.

Severyn Gutowski was his brother’s best man, and groomsmen were James Folstad and Joseph Benzschawel. Ushers were John Folstad and Charles Gutowski Jr.

A reception and dance were held for 300 guests at Quonset Hall, Thorp.
