Hess, Bunny Kay (Marriage – 18 September 1976)

The marriage of Miss Bunny Kay Hess and Daniel Louis Dux was solemnized Saturday, September 18, in a 2 p.m. ceremony performed a St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fairchild by Pastor Sasman. A reception was held at the Fairchild Rod and Gun Club. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Rayfield Hess of Fairchild and Mr. and Mrs. Louis Dux of Rt. 3 Neillsville.

The bride carried a bouquet of orchids and peach-colored roses as she was presented in marriage by her father. Her princess-style gown of white chiffon over satin trimmed with lace and appliques was fashioned with a standup collar and long, full sleeves gathered into wide cuffs. A Camelot headpiece caught her full length, lace trimmed veil.

Bernadine Henchen of Neillsville, sister of the bride, was her matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Betsy Hess of Fairchild, also a sister; Debbie Grap of Milwaukee, sister of the groom; and Pam Szydel and Valerie Emert, both of Fairchild. They wore princess style gowns of yellow, peach and green floral print with harmonizing yellow hats, and held nosegays of yellow and orange carnations and baby’s breath.

Attending the groom as bestman was a friend, James Henchen of Neillsville. Serving as groomsmen were David Dux, brother of the groom; William Grap of Milwaukee, the groom’s brother-in-law; Sidney Hess of Milwaukee, brother of the bride; and Mark Hediger of Neillsville. Fred Hess and Dennis Poppe seated guests.

Todd Henchen was the ring bearer and Connie Mitte, the flower girl. She was dressed similarly to the bride.

The bride was honored at three prenuptial showers, one given by Bernadine Henchen, Betty Durst and Debbie Grap; one by Jodi Opelt; and one by Betsy and Norma Hess.

A 1974 graduate of Osseo-Fairchild High School, the new Mrs. Dux is employed as a nurse’s aide at Memorial Home. Her husband graduated from Neillsville High School in 1973 and from Mid-State Technical Institute in Marshfield in 1975. He is engaged in a farm partnership with his father.

Following a wedding trip to Northern Wisconsin, the newlyweds will make their home on Rt. 3 Neillsville.
