Kohlnhofer, Barbara (28 SEP 1940)

Miss Barbara Kohlnhofer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kohlnhofer of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.)and Joseph George DeMar, son of Mr. and Mrs. John DeMar of Chicago, Ill., exchanged vows at 9 o’clock Saturday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenwood. The rites were read by the Rev. J.J. Novak.

A red fox trimmed costume suit of olive green wool, with brown accessories and a corsage of gardenias, was sorn by the bride. She carried a white prayer book. Miss Magdalen Kohlnhofer, sister of the bride, attended as maid of honor in a brown afternoon dress with green and brown accessories, and a corsage of yellow tea roses. Mr. DeMar was attended by his brother, James DeMar.

About 35 relatives and friends were served at the dinner given at the bride’s parents after the ceremony.

The young couple will be at home after Oct. 10 at 1837 Patterson St., in Chicago, Ill., where Mr. DeMar is a bus operator.
