LINCOLN TOWNSHIP YOUNG PEOPLE WED
MISS MAYME CONNOR AND GEORGE SHEEHAN TAKE NUPTIAL VOWS
A pretty wedding was solemnized Wednesday morning at St. Joseph’s Catholic church, Lincoln township, when Miss Mayme Connor, daughter of Mrs. John Connor, became the bride of George Sheehan.
Promptly at 8 o’clock the couple approached the altar to the strains of Lohengrin’s wedding march, played by Miss Katherine Fitzpatrick. Rev. M. Carey officiated at the nuptial mass.
The bride wore a beautiful cape plaited white crepe dress. Her tulle veil was held in place by bands of pearl and lilies of the valley. She carried a basket corsage of white roses and lilies of the valley. Her bridesmaid, Miss Katherine Carel, wore a honeydew georgette gown and carried a bouquet of butterfly roses. The groom was attended by his brother, Joseph Sheehan.
After the ceremony, the bridal party repaired to the home of the bride’s mother, where the immediate family of the bride and groom were guests at a four-course dinner. The dining room was tastefully decorated in the brides chosen colors, honeydew and white. Misses Gertrude Walsh and Anna Laura Fitzpatrick were given the honors of serving.
The bride and groom are members of pioneer families of this community and are very popular among the younger set, who wish them a long and happy wedded life.
Mr. and Mrs. Sheehan left on the evening train for an extended trip to Omaha and other points. They will be home to their many friends on the groom’s farm, in Marion township.
