Bizak, Sophie (Marriage - 19 April 1944)
Miss Sophie Bizak, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Bizak of Willard, became the bride of Pfc. Norman E. Reineking, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Reineking of Greenwood, in a wedding ceremony performed in the West side Reformed Church at Greenwood at 1:30 p.m., April 19, by the Rev. B. M. Fresenberg.
The wedding march was played by Mrs. Alvin Albert and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Wehrman, brother-in-law, and sister of the bride, Miss Elvera Reineking, sister of the groom and Arvin Liebzeit, were the attendants.
For the occasion the bride was attired in a long white gown made with a train and a long veil. Her flowers were an arrangement of carnations and sweet peas. Both attendants wore wine-colored frocks with matching headdresses, veils and corsages.
A 6 o’clock dinner was served to 100 guests at the home of the bride’s parents and that evening a dance was held at the Silver Dome.
The groom, who is stationed at Camp Pickett, Va., was graduated from Greenwood high school with the class of 1938 and attended Central State Teacher’s college at Stevens Point for two years before entering military service. His bride, who had been employed at the Farmers Store in Greenwood, accompanied her husband to Virginia.
Guests from away at the wedding were: Mrs. Hans Kolpanen, Miss Arlene Sebastian, Milwaukee; Otto Meinholdt, and Albert Meinholdt of Chicago; Miss Anne Haines, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Meinholdt, and daughter Rudolph Meinholdt, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Meinholdt and son of Neillsville; and Mr. and Mrs. John Bizak of Thorp.
