The Malvern Leader
20 October 1921
The marriage of Miss June Woods and Maurice R. Phelps occurred Saturday afternoon, October 15, at 3 p.m. at the home of the bride's mother in the presence of the immediate families and a few close friends. The day also marked the 25th wedding anniversary of the bride's parents.
Preceding the ceremony Miss Janice Godsey sang "O Promise Me." Mrs. Dean Jackson, a sister of the bride, played Mendelsohn's wedding march while the couple took their places unattended. Rev. G. T. Roberts of the Methodist church performed the impressive ring ceremony. The bride was becomingly gowned in navy blue georgette and carried a bridal bouquet of Mrs. Ward roses.
Immediately after the ceremony the young couple left by auto for Omaha, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Dean Jackson and Miss Mildred Woods. After November 1, they will be at home in Swea City, where the groom is mathematics instructor and athletic coach in the Swea City high school.
Both of these popular young people have hosts of friends and acquaintances in this community who wish them happiness and prosperity. The bride is a graduate of the class of '18 of Glenwood High School and is a very charming and attractive girl. The groom is a graduate of the class of '17 of Glenwood High School and attended college at Cornell College at Mt. Vernon, Iowa. He also served in the S. A. T. C. at Lincoln during 1917'18. The past year he has been farming. He is a splendid young man of sterling qualities and well worthy of the bride he has won.
For three years the bride has brought the good cheer of her presence to the Tribune office and now she has been called to higher duties, and the best wishes of the Tribune accompany her.
