Ryba, Bonita Lynn (22 May 1976)

The Rev. Richard Fliss, pastor, celebrated the wedding Mass at 1 p.m. May 22, 1976 which united in marriage the former Bonita Lynn Ryba, Thorp, and David John Susa, 1609 Clairemont Avenue, Lot 23, Eau Claire. Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen, was the site of the ceremony.

Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Milton Ryba, Route 1, Curtiss, and Mr. and Mrs. James Susa, route 2, Loyal.

For her day, the bride, who was given in marriage by her father, selected a gown of sheer organza and Venice lace, featuring a chapel train. Lace styled the Camelot headpiece, which secured a cascade of sheer bridal illusion bordered with lace. She carried a trailing cascade bouquet of white miniature carnations accented with red sweethear roses.

Preceded her down the aisle were her attendants, Mrs. Roger Volovsek, twin sister of the bride from Chippewa Falls, matron of honor, and Miss Karen Ryba, Curtiss, and Miss Lorrie Bourget, Thorp, bridesmaids. Their gowns featured an apron styling of floral window pane check, and their crescent shaped bouquets contained bright blue cornflower dotted on a background of white miniature carnations.

Attending the groom were Dennis Susa, Altoona, best man, and Donald Susa, Loyal and Jerome Ryba, Eau Claire, groomsmen. Ushering duties were performed by Greg Ryba, Roger Volovsek, Jim Susa and John Susa.

Additional wedding day events included a reception and dance at the Quonset Hall in Thorp.

The bride, a 1972 graduate of Owen-Withee High School, is employed as a clerical typist at ITT Life Insurance Corp., Thorp. The groom graduated in 1971 from Greenwood High School, and in 1972 from Eau Claire Technical School. He is a foreman for Menard’s in Eau Claire.

Upon return from a honeymoon trip to Upper Michigan, the couple will reside at 2910 Hiawatha St., Eau Claire.
