Ziegler, Joanne Marie (Marriage - 29 September 1973)

Miss Joanne Marie Ziegler became the bride of Raymond Richard Petkovsek in a 1 p.m. ceremony performed Saturday, September 29, at Holy Family Catholic Church in Willard by the Rev. Michael Mertens. A reception followed at the West Side hall, and a 3 p.m. dinner was served at the parish center. The West Side Hall was also the scene of a wedding dance that evening.

The couple’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Milburn Ziegler, Rt. 3 Sparta, who presented their daughter in marriage, and Mr. and Mrs. William Petkovsek, Rt. 1 Willard.

The bride selected a gown of polyester organza over taffeta. Its embroidered bodice was styled with a high neckline and short, puff sleeves, all edged with self-ruffle and trimmed with venise lace and satin ribbon. The full skirt was enhanced by ribbon beading trim and a double ruffle forming a sweep train. Her Camelot headpiece, highlighted with tiny seed pearls, held a four-tiered English illusion veil edged with venise lace. She carried a colonial bouquet of a lavender orchid, stephanotis and baby’s breath.

White baskets filled with lavender daisies and white baby’s breath accented with lavender ribbons complimented the attendants’ polyester print gowns in varied shades of green, lavender and blue fashioned in a high neckline, with puff-sleeved, fit and flare style. Miss Sue Nelson, Richfield, Mn, was the maid of honor. The bride’s sister, Miss Susan Ziegler, Sparta, was her other attendant. Flower girls were the Misses Patti and Sherri Ziegler, nieces of the bride.

Roger Gregorich, Willard served as bestman and Wayne Johnson, Greenwood, as groomsman. Ushers were Charles Ziegler, brother of the bride, and Dave Petkovsek, brother of the groom.

The soloist was Miss Jenny Gruber. Mark Perkins was the guitarist.

A May graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the new Mrs. Petkovsek has been completing her internship in medical technology at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield. Her husband, also a 1973 University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire graduate, is employed as an accountant. They will lie at 5000 Sheboygan Ave. Madison.
