Henrichs, Helen Marie (Marriage - 19 June 1954) 

The Holy Redeemer church, Milwaukee, provided the setting on Saturday morning, when Miss Helen Marie Henrichs, Milwaukee, became the bride of Harlen John Laack, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Laack, Abbotsford. 

As the daughter of Mrs. Alois Henrichs, Milwaukee, stood before the Rev. Fr. Kelly, she wore a white Chantilly lace and nylon net over satin gown accented by a Roman tiera headpiece. Her white bouquet was composed of lilies and carnations. 

Miss Margaret Henrichs, Milwaukee, served as maid of honor for her sister and she was escorted by the best man, John Loucks, Abbotsford. A lace jacket topped her yellow net and lace over taffeta skirt and she wore a matching headpiece. 

In blue gowns, styled identically to the maid of honor’s, Miss Jean Laack, Abbotsford, sister of the groom, and Miss Jeanette Plautz, Wausau, served as bridesmaids. The attendants’ bouquets contained daisies and carnations. 

The bride’s brothers, Leo and Tony Henrichs, Milwaukee, were groomsmen and Robert Henrichs, Milwaukee, brother of the bride, and Jim Lamont, Abbotsford, ushered. 

After the ceremony, a dinner and reception were held at the home of the bride’s mother. On Wednesday evening a wedding dance was held at the Colby Park Pavilion. 

The new Mrs. Laacks, who is a graduate of Medford high school and St. Mary’s School of Nursing, Wausau, is employed as an industrial nurse at the Schlitz Brewing Company, while her husband, a graduate of Abbotsford high school, is engaged in a housing project in Milwaukee. 

After a honeymoon is northern Wisconsin, the young couple will be at home at 2453 North Buffum Street, Milwaukee. 

Guests were present at the ceremony from Milwaukee, Medford, Wausau, Abbotsford, Phillips, and Unity.
