Herrmann, Cathy Jo (21 Jul 1973)

Immanuel United Church of Christ in West Bend was the setting for the candlelight wedding of Cathy Jo Herrmann and Darrell Duehring. Officiating at the double ring ceremony was Dr. Harry W. Baumer. The bride was given in marriage by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Herrmann of Superior, former Colby residents, during the 4 p.m. ceremony on Saturday, July 21, 1973. The groom’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. Fred J. Duehring of West Bend.

The bride entered the church wearing an empress waist gown in whit polyester organza, styled with a yellow bib bodice trimmed in white and had a stand up collar. The short puffed sleeves were cuffed with double ruffles and trim, and a yellow sash encircled the waistline. Her profile headpiece, accented with flowered appliques and pearls, held the chapel length veil. She carried a hand bouquet of daisy mums and fern.

The bride’s sister, Cindy Herrmann, West Bend, served as maid of honor. Barb Wilkens, West Bend, and Wendy Awe, Colby, were bridesmaids. The attendants appeared in floor length yellow organza gowns fashioned in the same pattern as the bride, and they wore floppy hats as headpieces. They carried baskets of white and yellow daisies accented with blue star flowers.

The groom was attended by his brother, Fred K. Herrmann, Duehring, Germantown, who was best man, and by Calvin Hermann, Chippewa Falls and Robert Duehring, Jackson, as groomsmen.

The flower girl, Shelly Duehring, Germantown, was attired in a gown matching those of the bridesmaids. She carried a miniature hand bouquet matching the bride’s. Kevin Duitsman, Shannon, Illinois, was ring bearer. Penny Herrmann, Colby, and Mary Ellen Duehring, Germantown, were candle lighters. They wore gowns identical to the attendants, but were in blue polyester organza. The ushers were Jack Duehring and Dale Tietz, Germantown.

The organist, Mrs. Phyllis Lawson, Shannon, Illinois, accompanied the soloist, Terri Wilfer, West Bend, who sang “There is Love” and “The Wedding Prayer.”

After the vows had been said, the wedding party and guests precede to the Richfield Hall for dinner, followed by a dance.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Duehring have returned from a honeymoon in northern Wisconsin and are residing at 704 Chestnut Street, West Bend.
