Edwards, Janet Elaine (Marriage – 9 Sept. 1972)

Miss Janet Elaine Edwards, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hershel Edwards, 1816, Minnesota Ave., was given in marriage by her father Saturday when she wed James Roy Pape of Milwaukee, son of the Richard U. Papes, Cudahy.

The Rev. James Oliver officiated at the 7 p.m. candlelight ceremony at Trinity Lutheran Church, for which Steven Tillman was soloist and Mrs. Robert T. Wray organist.

The bride wore a semi-fitted, A-line gown of double knit crepe. The princess lines were accented by white lace trimmed with blue and green embroidered braid. Two rows of lace bordered the hemline and train. The gown was made by Mrs. Anthony Shulist, sister of the bride. The chapel length bridal veil was held in place with a headband of double knit crepe and blue and green trimmed lace. The bride’s colonial bouquet was of white roses, blue carnations and baby’s breath.

Mrs. Anthony Schulist, sister of the bride, was matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss JoAnn Pape, sister of the bridegroom, and Miss Joanne Seefelt. They wore A-line gowns of blue, white and green flowered voile featuring long full sleeves with wide cuffs. Each carried a long-stemmed white rose tied with white streamers.

Richard J. Pape was best man for his brother. Groomsmen were Jerome Pape, brother of the bridegroom, and Anthony Shulist. Glenn Hardrath and Carol Larson were ushers.

The Whiting Motor Hotel was the scene for the reception after the ceremony. Guest attended from Cudahy, Doylestown, Oak Creek, Milwaukee, South Milwaukee, Greenwood, Loyal, Spencer, Unity, Stetsonville, Marshfield, Whitehall, Eau Claire, Schofield, Junction City, Plover and Stevens Point, and from Rochester and Oronoco, Minn., Dixon, Ill., and Fort Eustis, Va.

The bride is a 1968 graduate of P. J. Jacobs High School and of Career Academy, Milwaukee. She is employed in the office of Dr. Naghi Motamedi, Milwaukee. Mr. Pape was graduated from Cudahy High School and is employed by The Bostrom Com., Division of United Products of Oil.

After a wedding trip to Florida the couple will live in Cudahy.

Pre-nuptial events were: a miscellaneous shower given by Mrs. Don Berry at her summer cottage near Waupaca; a miscellaneous shower given by Mrs. Richard Ahrens, Mrs. Charles Hanson and Mrs. George Kurz at the Kurz home; and a miscellaneous shower given by Mrs. Richard U. Pape and Miss JoAnn Pape, mother and sister of the bridegroom at their home in Cudahy.
