Brux, Janet Marie (Marriage - 15 June 1974)

In a 2 p.m. ceremony Saturday, June 15, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Greenwood Miss Janet Marie Brux became the bride of Garfield Arthur Bienfang. The Rev. Leander Koopman officiated for the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arlan Brux, Greenwood, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Bienfang, Rt. 1 Helenville. The couple greeted guests later at a reception at the knights of Columbus Hall.

For her wedding, the bride chose an A-line gown of white silver satin styled with a flowing train, empire waistline, high neckline, and leg o’mutton sleeves with pure white venise lace. She carried an arrangement of stephanotis, pink roses, white miniature carnations and blue carnations as she was presented in marriage by her parents.

Miss Monica Brux, Ashland, was the maid of honor. Bridesmaids were Miss Judi Brux of Antigo, Mrs. Mary Mueller of Oconomowoc and Miss Janet Fester of Villa Park, Il. White baskets of pink carnations and baby’s breath accented their A-line, empire style gowns of blue flocked crepe complimented by matching blue lace hats.

The groom was attended by Mike Tyler, Milwaukee, as bestman and by James Mueller of Oconomowoc, Randy Hoefs of Jefferson and Richard Ermilio of Elmwood Park, Il., as groomsmen. Serving as ushers were Alan Brux, Greenwood, and Ellwood Metzger, Watertown.

Miss Shannon Horton, niece of the bride, was the flower girl. Organist for the ceremony was Tom Zepaltas. Donna, Debbie and Diane Zepaltas were the vocalists.

The bride is a 1965 graduate of the Greenwood Public Schools and attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse for two years and the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for one semester. She is employed at an Oak Brook bank. Her husband, who graduated from Jefferson High School in 1964, manages a shoe store in the Oak Brook shopping center.

Following a wedding trip to California, they will live in Glendale Heights.
