Chase, Leona (Marriage - *30 May 1937) *Could be off

Miss Leona Chase, daughter of Mrs. Dora Chase, was united in marriage to Milo R. Mabie, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Mabie of Granton, Sunday at 9 a.m., the sing ring ceremony being performed by Rev. G. W. Longenecker at his residence. Maid of honor was Mrs. Roy Chase, sister-in-law of the bride, and best man was Roy Chase, the bride’s brother.

The bride was attractively garbed in a white suit and pink blouse with a corsage of yellow roses, lilies of the valley and sweet peas, tied with a pink ribbon. Mrs. Chase wore a pretty pink dress with a white coat and a cluster of white carnations on the dress.

Immediately after the ceremony the young couple left for Chain of Lakes in Waupaca to spend Decoration Day and Monday, returning Monday night.

The bride has been a lifelong resident of this community, graduating from the Neillsville High School in 1932. For sometime past she has been employed as a stenographer in the office of Ben Frantz, Clerk of Court, where she has proved to be most efficient and courteous. She is a young lady of the highest type in every respect. On May 26 her friends gave her a shower at the home of Mrs. Roy Chase, where she received many useful gifts. Mr. Mabie graduated from the Granton High School in 1931 and learned the barber trade. He now operates his own shop on West Seventh Street where his skill and genial disposition have combined to build up a fine business. The Press joins their many friends in wishing them a lifetime of happiness.
