Zivney, Kathryn L. (3 SEP 1950)

White gladioli and candelabra formed the background at the First Congregational Church, Owen, Wis., for the 4:30 ceremony Sunday, Sept. 3, 1950, which united in marriage, Miss Kathryn Lorraine Zivney, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles D. Zivney of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), and Mr. Raymond Gene Hiebsch, Glendale, Calif. The Rev. Myron Glick read the rites. The bride entered upon the arm of her father in a beautiful wedding gown fashioned from Burmil ivory satin, with imported silk lace over a fitted hip length bodice, fashioned full into the skirt. The long lace sleeves ended in points over the wrists, and the full skirt fell into a long train. A close fitting cloche of lace covered satin held her silk illusion fingertip veil. A white orchid surrounded by white roses and lilies of the valley formed her bouquet.

Mrs. George Johnson of St. Croix Falls was chosen by the bride to be her matron of honor. Her gown was fuchsia slipper satin with a lace encrusted bodice below a Peter Pan collar. With it she wore matching gauntlets and hat and carried a colonial bouquet of Rubrum lilies. Miss Helen Hiebsch of Glendale, Calif., sister of the groom, and Mrs. John Bacon, Owen, were the bridesmaids in gowns of cedar green slipper satin styled identically to the matron of honor’s. They also wore matching hats and gauntlets and carried colonial bouquets of Rubrum lilies.

The groom, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Hiebsch, 412 W. Harvard St., Glendale, Calif., chose as his best man, Mr. Gail Beck, Madison, Wis. Serving as ushers were Mr. Duane Phillips, Thorp, and Mr. Myron Ponzer, Oshkosh. The men attended in white dinner jackets, wearing the conventional boutonniere..

Both mothers witnessed the double ring ceremony in gowns of Emerald green with black accessories and orchid corsages.

Mr. Art Nelson was at the organ for the pre-nuptial music and the wedding marches, and Miss Lucille Gehl of Chippewa Falls rendered "I Love Thee" and "O Perfect Love," during the service.

Following the wedding a 5:30 dinner was held in the church parlors, after which the couple left for a short honeymoon in northern Wisconsin before leaving for their future home at 404 South Pacific Av., Glendale, Calif., where the groom is employed as stock man at Mitchell Camera Corp.
