IRENE JONES, FORMER LE MARS GIRL BECOMES BRIDE OF VERNON EWIN
A beautiful candlelight wedding took place in the First Baptist Church
in Independence, Iowa, Sunday evening June 9, 1946, at 8 o'clock when
Miss Irene Jones, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. S.A. Jones, became the bride
of Vernon Charles Ewin, of Minden, Nebr. The bride's father performed
the double ring ceremony.
The church was beautifully decorated and the altar was banked with pink
and white peonies and ferns. Four candelabra with six candles in each,
cast soft candlelight over the scene. There were also candles in the
windows. A 15-minute organ prelude of favorite selections of the bride
was played by Miss Grace Potwin of Independence, who also played the
Lohengrin Mendelssohn wedding marches. Mrs. C.L. Raymond, soloist, sang
“I Love You Truly” and “Because” preceding the ceremony, and the “Lord's
Prayer” at the close.
The bride wore a white floor length gown of rayon marquisette with white
taffeta. Her finger tip veil was held in place by a crown band of
seeded pearls, and the bridal bouquet was made of white carnations and
sweet peas with a pink rosebud corsage forming the center. She wore a
double strand of pears, a gift from the groom.
The bride was attended by her aunt, Mrs. Calvin Anderson of Akron, Iowa,
as matron of honor and two bridesmaids, Misses Delores Anderson of
Akron, cousin of the bride and Ruth Ewin, of LeMars, sister of the
groom. The matron of honor wore a floor length blue taffeta brocade
gown with a shoulder length veil held in place with a band of pink
flowers. She carried a bouquet of pink carnations. The bridesmaids
wore floor-length gowns of pink lace and chiffon with pink and white
The groom was attended by a close friend, Robert Glaser of LeMars as
best man. Ushers were Lorvan Hawkins of LeMars, cousin of the bride,
Fayne (cannot read), Jr., of Independence and Robert Schanke, Independence.
The groom and his attendants wore conventional dark suits with white
carnation boutonnieres. A reception was held in the church parlors for 165 guests.
The three-tier wedding cake topped with blue candles and pink streamers
decorated the reception table, carrying out the bride's chosen colors of
white, pink and blue.
The bride has been a resident of Independence, Iowa, for the past 2 1/2
years and has taught school the last four years in Plymouth and Buchanan
counties. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ewin of LeMars.
He spent 31 months in the Army with 22 months overseas duty in Italy,
France and Germany, receiving his discharge last October. He is now
employed in the Minden Creamery, Minden, Neb., where the young couple
will make their future home.
