Behrens, Roxy Ann (26 FEB 1966)


On Saturday, Feb. 26, 1966, at 3:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Pewaukee, Wis., Miss Roxy Ann Behrens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Behrens of Sussex, Wis., became the bride of Mr. William Jaeger, son of Mrs. Leone Phillips of Hayward.


In the presence of approximately 100 friends and relatives Miss Behrens walked down the aisle on the arm of her father to take the vows.  The bride was lovely in her white satin gown, with brocaded designs accenting the front of the skirt and fitted bodice - the sheath front of the skirt flowed with tucks toward the back forming a bouffant train.  Her shoulder length veil was held by a scalloped lace headpiece.  Matching satin slippers and gloves, and pearl earrings completed the ensemble.  She carried a bouquet of white carnations and red roses.


Sue Behrens, sister of the bride, as maid of honor, wore a blue chiffon street length dress with matching blue veil and shoes.  She carried a bouquet of white carnations fringed with blue.


Jeffrey and Brenda, the Behrens’ five-year-old twins, served as ring bearer and flower girl, respectively.  Brenda wore a white dress and veil with white accessories, and carried a small bouquet identical to that of the maid of honor.  Jeffrey wore a dark suit similar to that of the groom, and wore a white carnation.


The groom chose as his best man, his brother-in-law, Mr. Richard Larson of Hudson.  Mr. Larson also served as soloist with a lovely and inspiring rendition of the "Lord’s Prayer," accompanied by Mr. William Risch of Pewaukee.  Rev. David Jones, pastor, officiated at the wedding ceremony.  Ushers were Ron Fay of Cincinnati, Ohio and Norbert Dionne of Milwaukee.


The bride is a graduate of Oconomowoc High School and received her diploma from the Professional Business Institute of Minneapolis, Minn., and is employed at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Milwaukee.


The groom is a graduate of Hayward High School; he served eight years in the Navy; he is now employed by the Bell Telephone Co.


The young couple plans a delayed honeymoon to Northern Wisconsin in July.  They are living at 1316 East Curtis Place, Milwaukee.
