CRAIG POSTMASTER WINS A BRIDE
MISS GRACE WOODS AND OMER L. BROOKS ARE PRINCIPALS IN WEDDING HELD IN ST.
JOSEPH’S CHURCH IN STRUBLE ON WEDNESDAY MORNING
A pretty church wedding took place at St. Joseph’s church in Struble on
Wednesday morning at nine o’clock when Miss Grace A. Woods was united in
marriage with Omer L. Brooks, of Craig, in the presence of a large gathering
of friends. Rev. E. T. McNally celebrated the nuptial mass with full choral
service. The bride was attended by Miss Catherine R. Woods and Dr. W. J.
Knebel was best man. Miss Grace McFarland played Mendelssohn’s wedding
march. The bride was becomingly attired in a gown of white satin radium made
en traine under silk embroidered net with trimmings of pearl. Her veil was
caught with white roses. The maid of honor wore pink messaline with braided
net, and wore a large picture hat and carried a bouquet of pink roses.
Martin Eberle and M. Schroeder acted as ushers.
A wedding breakfast at the home of the bride’s uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs.
J. A. Sayer, followed the ceremony.
The bride’s going away gown was of tan whipcord with hat and gloves to
match. They were the recipients of many valuable presents.
After a brief honeymoon trip they will be at home in Craig, where Mr. Brooks
is a druggist and postmaster. His bride is a popular young woman with many
friends and is a musician with more than ordinary ability.
