Statz, Cathy (Marriage - 9 March1974)

St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Middleton, was the setting for the March 9 wedding of Miss Cathy Statz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Statz of Rt. 3, Neillsville, and Stan Hellenbrand, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Hellenbrand, Rt. 1 Middleton. Monsignor Brianes officiated at the 12:30 p.m. ceremony, which was followed by a reception at the Dorf House, Roxbery.

The bride appeared in a gown of satin organza highlighted by imported English lace trim. The lace bodice featured satin ribbon trim at the waistline, a high neckline and bishop sleeves. Accordion pleating formed the hemline. A Juliet cap headpiece caught her silk illusion veil which flowed to form a lace-edged cathedral train. She carried a heart-shaped arrangement of red and white and pink carnations, as she was presented in marriage by her father.

Renee Rendmeister, Marshfield, served as honor attendant. Bridesmaids were Joan Statz, Diane Hellenbrand of Middleton, Ruth Dahl of Oshkosh and Jan Path of Middleton. Their rose-printed gowns in shades of yellow, orange, blue, pink and green, respectively, were fashioned with wide cotton lace trim. Hats matched the hues of the dresses and bouquets included white and matching-colored carnations.

Michael Statz acted as bestman, and Harley Marks of Dane, Tom Mitchell of Middleton. Bob Ripp of Cross Plains and Rich Hellenbrand of Middleton, as groomsmen. Guests were seated by Roger Hellenbrand, Middleton, and William Statz.

The former Miss Statz was honored at pre-nuptial showers given by Mrs. Edmund Statz, Diane Hellenbrand and by her co-workers at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital, Madison.

She is a graduate of Neillsville High School and of Western Wisconsin Technical Institute, La Crosse. Her husband graduated from Middleton High School and served in the United States Air Force until 1972. He is also employed at the VA Hospital.

The newlyweds are making their home in Apartment 5, 6315 Century Ave. Middleton.
