Kotcon, Roberta (27 May 1978)

Making their home at Rt. 2 Greenwood, are newlyweds Louie and Roberta Fortuna, who exchanged vows Saturday in Holy Family Catholic Church, Willard. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Betty Roberts, Willard, and the groom’s parent is Mrs. Christine Fortuna, also of Willard. With the Rev. James Lesczynski officiating, the bride was presented to the altar by her mother.

The bride wore an ivory, V-neck gown with lace trim, long sleeves and a mantilla worn as a veil. She carried gardenias, blue forget-me-nots and silk baby’s breath.

Attending the bride was Mrs. Rodney Hoeper, Greenwood, as matron of honor, and Mrs. Greg Langreck and Mrs. Carol Karlen, both of Greenwood, and Lori Koschak, Gurnee, Illinois, as bridesmaids. They were attired in V-neck, lace gowns with bell sleeves, all in a floral pattern and carried blue daisies, yellow carnations and baby’s breath. Wendy Smith of Evanston, Illinois, and George Brenner, Jr., of Loyal served as flower girl and ringbearer.

Bestman was Greg Langreck, Greenwood. Joining him as groomsmen were Michael Olson of Greenwood, Jim Christie of Willard and Michael Karlen of Eau Claire. Ushering were Greg and Scott Herrick of Willard.

The 1:00 p.m. ceremony included music by Mary Ann Lesar on the accordion, Laura Lesar on the organ and Debbie Aumann on the guitar. A reception and dinner followed with a dance later that evening at the Greenwood Legion Hall.

The bride is a 1977 graduate of Greenwood High School and is employed as a dental assistant for Dr. Dan Schield, Neillsville and Greenwood. The groom is a 1974 graduate of Greenwood High School and is presently employed by Wick Building Systems, Spencer.
