Vollrath, Janene Beth (Marriage - 21 July 1973)

Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Vollrath of Greenwood presented their daughter, Miss Janene Beth Vollrath, in marriage to Leslie Jon Backus Saturday, July 21, at Holy Family Catholic Church in Willard. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Backus of Willard. Officiating at the 1 p.m. ceremony was the Rev. Michael Mertens.

The bride’s traditional white gown was framed by a mantilla veil flowing to a chapel-length train. Daisies formed her bouquet.

Attending the bride were Miss Diane Gregorich as maid of honor and Miss Linda Kocher and Miss Jana Barr as bridesmaids. All are of Greenwood. Their daisy-trimmed gowns of nylon dotted Swiss over taffeta were designed by the bride’s mother. They wore picture hats and carried daisy bouquets designed to match their dresses.

Al Debevec, Willard, served as bestman. Groomsmen were Randy Vollrath of Greenwood and Ed Bushman of Loyal. Guests were seated by Galen Liebzeit of Greenwood and John Bayuk of Willard.

Corrine Stewart, Greenwood, was the vocalist. She was accompanied by Mrs. Sue Volovsek.

A reception and a dinner at the parish hall were followed in the evening by a dance at the West Side Hall.

The bride was honored at a shower given by her bridal attendants at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Darwin Vollrath and at another shower given by friend of her parents at the Warner Town Hall.

The newlyweds are living at Pine View Terrace in Greenwood, where the groom is employed by a local firm.
