Venzke, Judy (18 Aug 1973)

Miss Judy Venzke, daughter of Mr. Clarence Venzke of Route 2 Athens, and James Woehrle, son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Woehrle of Route 5, Marshfield, were united in marriage Saturday, August 18, 1973 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Milan.

Rev. Mark Nicholaus performed the 2 p.m. ceremony.

Organist for the service was Alice Barkow and the vocalist was Clarence Barkow.

Given in marriage by her father, the bride chose a white gown with empire bodice of Venetian lace, blouse sleeves and attached chapel train. Her veil was secured by a face framer headpiece of silk organza flowers. White and lavender poms, baby’s breath and yellow roses made up the colonial bridal bouquet.

Serving as the bride’s matron of honor was her sister-in-law, Mrs. Roy Venzke of Elkhorn. Mrs. Dennis Blum of Abbotsford was the bridesmaid. They were attired in floor length gowns with lavender skirt gathered at modified waistline, with white bodice having multi-colored bib effect, and matching headpieces. Their flowers were colonial bouquets of lavender and white carnations.

The bride’s brother, Roy Venzke of Elkhorn, served as best man. John Venzke of Route 2, Athens, was the groomsman, and Dennis Blum of Abbotsford and Jerry Nowak of Spencer were the ushers.

A reception, dinner and dance followed the ceremony at the Trianon Ballroom.

The bride is a graduate of Abbotsford High School and is employed by Dorchester Furniture Company, Dorchester. Her husband graduated from Marshfield High School and is employed by Urban American in house construction.

They will make their first home at Route 5, Marshfield.
