Dated October 5, 1916
The marriage of Eugene H. Lias and Miss Florence Bernice Rhodes, of this
place, was solemnized at high noon Wednesday, October 4, 1916, at the
Baptist parsonage in LeMars, Ia., Rev. Hunter officiating. It was a quiet,
but very happy event, and was witnessed by Herman Koch and Miss Marian
Rhodes, sister of the bride. After the ceremony the bridal party returned
to the home of the bride's parents in Akron, where they and relatives of the
contracting parties partook of a fine wedding dinner. The bride's wedding
gown was of blue taffeta silk, trimmed with georgette lace.
The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. U.G. Rhodes and is a bright
and charming young woman. She has lived here since early girlhood. For
some time she has held a position in George Dudley's store. The groom is a
son of Mr. and Mrs. George Lias, south of town, and has lived here all his
life. He is a young man of upright character and industrious habits and in
every way worthy of the winsome bride he has won. Both young people are
well worthy of the esteem in which they are held in a wide circle of
acquaintances, who unite in extending them heartiest congratulations and
wishes for never-ending joy and happiness in a long life's voyage.
After the dinner yesterday afternoon the newly-married couple left on a
wedding trip about two weeks to points in South Dakota, and will travel by
auto. They will be at home after November 1st on the Lias farm south of
town, of which the groom will take charge, as his parents are planning an
extended trip west.
