Cook, Jean (Marriage - 25 Dec. 1943)

Attired in a street-length frock of winter white gabardine, accented with green accessories, and a corsage of pink roses and white pompoms, Miss Jean Cook, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Cook of Marathon and teacher of the Woodland school in the town of Green Grove, exchanged nuptial vows with Harold Gardner, son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gardner, town of Loyal, Clark county, Christmas afternoon. The ceremony took place in the First Ev. and Reformed church at Colby, with the Rev. David Grether officiating.

The bride’s only attendant, Miss Lorea Gardner, town of Loyal, a sister of the bridegroom, wore a soldier blue crepe dress, with black accessories, and had a corsage of yellow roses and white pompoms. S. first class Donald Cook, a brother of the bride who was home on leave from the New Orleans, La., naval station, attended as best man.

A wedding dinner, with covers for 24, was served at the home of the bride’s parents, which was decorated for the event with streamers of pink and white. Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Cook and Mr. and Mrs. William Loughead and son, Billy, Colby, Harold Kollmansburger and Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gardner and daughters, Lorea and Velma and son, Vern, Loyal, and Mr. and Mrs. Donald Sommers and daughter, Barbara, Owen, were out of town guests.

The couple will reside on a farm near Loyal and they are now at home to friends.
