Kaszubowski, Carol Dorothy (13 Oct 1973)

On October 13, 1973, at 1:30 p.m. at the little country church, St. Mary’s Czestochowa, of Stanley, Carol Dorothy Kaszubowski became the bride of Thomas Joseph Kluck, in a double ring ceremony performed by Father Andrezjewski, and assisted by Lenny and Larry Depa, cousins of the bride.

The parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Ted Kaszubowski of Thorp, and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Kluck of Stanley.

The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor length gown in organza and an A-line skirt trimmed with a dainty ruffle and a Chantilly lace border with dainty ruffle forming a deep V bodice front and back. It had fitted sleeves with ruffles at the wrists and an attached chapel sweep train with lace trim. She completed her attire with a Chantilly lace toque with pearl trim, two tier elbow length veil, and carried a bouquet of white carnations and red roses.

The bride chose her sister, Betty Kaszubowski of Thorp as maid of honor. The other bridesmaids were Pat Kaszubowski of Thorp, sister of the bride, Barb Norks of River Grove, Illinois, cousin of the bride, and Ann Zynda of Milwaukee, cousin of the bride.

The girls wore floor length gowns of green and white lace. A velvet ribbon accented the waists and miniature green and white ribbons in their hair.

The groom chose his brother, Bob Kluck of Stanley as his best man. The groomsmen were: Pat Logan, Ron Nerdrum, and Duane Soeller, all of Stanley, friends of the groom.

Ushers were Bob Kaszubowski, brother of the bride, and Kevin Steinmetz of Colby, friend of the couple.

The mother of the bride wore an aqua floor length gown of polyester knit, with sheer sleeves and embroidered trim around the bodice. /The mother of the groom wore a rose floor length gown, with sheer sleeves, and a dainty ruffle around the neckline.

The organist, Miss Pat Slowiak, friend of the bride, began the ceremony by singing “The Wedding Song.”

The offertory gift was brought up by Roy Schaal of Harvey, Illinois, cousin of the groom, and Gary Zurakowski of Thorp, cousin of the bride, while the organist sang the song “Today.”

The bride and groom place a bouquet of yellow and white chrysanthemums at the altar of the Blessed Virgin, while the organist sang “On This Day.”

The concluding hymn was “The Hawaiian Wedding Song.”

After the couple left the church they went to visit the groom’s grandmother at the Stanley Nursing Home, and then proceeded on to St. Hedwig’s Quonset Hall for the reception.

Mr. Louis Depa of Rockford, Illinois, godfather of the bride, proposed a toast, then all enjoyed the traditional Polish family style meal.

Mrs. Peter Depa of Thorp, the bride’s aunt, was in charge of the guest book, and Mrs. Louis Depa of Rockford, godmother of the bride, cut the cake, with the help of Mrs. Walter Gwiazda of Thorp, friend of the bride, and the bridesmaids.

The host and hostess were Mr. and Mrs. James Sweeney of Stanley, friends of the couple.

The evening was enjoyed with dancing to the music of Dan Cynor, and his Polka Boys.

The couple resides at 139 1/2 East Fourt Avenue, Stanley, Wisconsin.
