On Tuesday, Sept. 28 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Converse occurred a very pretty but simple wedding when their daughter Ruth M. was united in marriage with Clarence R. Coon, of Hopkinton, Ia. At 8 p. m. the bridal party took their places in the front parlor under an immense wedding bell of white asters, the simple but impressive wedding ceremony being pronoun{c}ed by Dr. D. T. Robertson, pastor of the Congregational church. During the congratulations Miss Dorothy Converse of St. Paul, neice of the bride rendered Mendelssohn’s wedding march. A dainty two course luncheon was served to the families of the contracting parties and a dozen close friends of the bride.
The bride is one of Cresco’s favorite daughters—every one who knew her loved Ruth. She is an accomplished pianist and will be missed in local musical circles. The groom while only for a few months a resident of Cresco has proved himself worthy of the bride he has won. The wedding gifts were numerous and beautiful.
The out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Coon, father and mother of the groom, H. W. and J. W. Coon, brothers of the groom, all of Manchester, la. Mrs. C. E. Blackorby, Hansboro, N. D., and Miss Dorothy Converse, St. Paul. Mr. and Mrs. Coon left on a honeymoon trip to Minneapolis. They will return to Cresco for a few days before leaving for their future home in Hopkinton. The Plain Dealer joins with scores of friends in congratulations.
