Murphy, Helen (21 APR 1956)


Of interest to Owen (Clark Co., Wis.) residents is the announcement of the marriage of Miss Helen Louise Murphy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy C. Murphy of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), and Bernard P. Eron, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Eron, Dancy, which occurred Saturday morning, April 21, 1956, in St. Francis Catholic Church, Knowlton.


The Rev. John Nowak performed the 9:30 o’clock ceremony before friends and relatives who attended from Joliet, Ill., Owen, Milwaukee, Abbotsford, Krakow and Stevens Point.


When Mr. Murphy gave his daughter in marriage, she was wearing a gown of white Chantilly lace and nylon tulle over white satin.  The fitted lace bodice, trimmed with iridescent sequins, had a portrait neckline, small collar and long sleeves.  Her bouffant skirt of tulle was made with a wide lace panel in front and back, extending intot he chapel train.


Her fingertip veil of imported French illusion, edged with lace and sequin appliqués, was joined to a Juliet cap of lace, trimmed with tiny ruffles and seed pearls.  She carried an arrangement of red roses and white carnations and white prayer book.


Miss Marie Orlowski was the maid of honor and Misses Alvina Kawlewski, Valerie Eron and Gertrude Bunczak were the bridesmaids in matching power blue, strapless frocks of Chantilly lace and nylon net over taffeta.  Their bouffant skirts of net, circle with four rows of double lace ruffles, were gathered to lace bodices.  Matching lace jackets had cap sleeves and wing collars.


Their crowns of ruffled nylon net were trimmed with tiny flowers.  They carried bouquets of red and white carnations.


Patricia Bunczak, the flower girl, wore a gown and carried flowers like the bridal aides and Michael Drinka, nephew of the bride, carried the rings on a pillow.  Groomsmen were Paul Eron, David Ostrowski and Steve Eron.


Following the ceremony, 100 families were entertained at Club L and A in Mill Creek.  The festivities included a reception, breakfast and 4:30 o’clock dinner.


The newlyweds are living on route 1, Dancy, where the bridegroom is engaged in farming.  His bride has been employed at St. Michael’s Hospital in Stevens Point.
