SENEY: (Special Correspondence)
On New Year's day at the home of Mrs E Penning occurred the marriage of
her daughter, Lena Mae to Fred B Rees. Promptly at twelve o'clock, Miss
Cynthia Holster, of LeMars, played the wedding march, the bridal party
entered the parlor, took their position beneath a cluster of white wedding
bells, here they took the vow that made them husband and wife, Rev C F
Hartzell performing the ceremony.
The home was beautufully decorated with sprays of fern and the wedding
colors pink and white. The bride wore a white silk dress trimmed with lace
and carried a beautiful bouquet of pink and white roses. After
congratulations a sumptuous three course dinner was served to about twenty
five friends and relatives. The waitresses were Mrs I L Demaray, sister of
the bride, Miss Nettie Winkle, cousin of the bride, and Misses Cynthia
Holster and Lulu Lancaster. They were the recipients of many beautiful
presents. Mr and Mrs Rees were accompanied to LeMars by a jolly crowd of
young folks, where they left on the six o'clock train amid showers of rice
for Freeport, Ill., where they will visit Miss Alice Winkle, an aunt of the
bride. They will also visit relatives near Shannon and Pearl City, Ill.
They will live on the groom's father's farms one mile south of town, where
they will be at home to their many friends after February 1st. We extend
congratulations and best wishes. Guests present at the wedding from a
distance were Mr and Mrs Louis Demeray, of Ihlen, Minn., Mr and Mrs Edward
Rees, of LeMars, Lyman Penning, and Nettie Winkle, of Ashton, Iowa, and Fred
Rees, of Sheldon, N.D.
