Added by Reid R. Johnson, 9/16/2016, the newspaper announcement of the marriage:

Garber: Before the altar of St. John's Evangelical and Reformed church in Garber, Miss Helen Walters, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dale Walters of Colesburg, became the bride of Clyde Jennings, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Jennings of Garber, on Thursday. The Rev. Walter Vonderhoe performed the single ring ceremony.

The bride's only attendant was, Inez Jennings, sister of the bridegroom. George Kriebs, friend of the bridegroom, was best man.

During the ceremony Berniece Thein, cousin of the bridegroom, and Helmuth Landt, friend of the couple, sang "If I Could Tell you Through The Years" and "The Lord's Prayer."

Ushers at the wedding were Wilma Walters, cousin of the bride, and Keith Schmelzer, cousin of the bridegroom.

A reception for 75 guests was held in the church parlors immediately following the ceremony, and the wedding party enjoyed a turkey dinner at the municipal building in Guttenberg, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary of Guttenberg. Later a dance was held at Lakeside Ballroom in their honor.

The bride is a graduate of Colesburg high school. The bridegroom is a graduate of Elkport high school and is engaged in farming south of Garber, where the couple will make their home.
