The Holy Rosary Church in Owen was the setting for the wedding of Miss Diane Peissig and the late William Peissig to Roy Elquist, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chester Elquist of Sister Bay. The Rev. George Becker officiated at the 3:30 p.m. ceremony performed on Saturday, September 8, 1972. Servers at the wedding mass were the bride’s nephews, Bruce and Brian Peissig.

Robert Beyer sang and played the guitar as the bride escorted by her brother, Duane Peissig approached the altar wearing a floor length gown of white satin with organza overlay in A-line styling. Her princess veil cascaded from a Camelot headpiece and she carried a bouquet of yellow chrysanthemums.

Mrs. Trudy Jischke, Oshkosh, was the matron of honor, and bridesmaids were Mrs. Fay Elliott and Miss Barbara Winnekens, both of Oshkosh, and Lois Wuethrich, Greenwood.
