Mead, Shirley A. (5 AUG 1942)

A green and cream silk jersey suit was chosen by Miss Shirley Ann Mead, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Mead, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), for her marriage to Max Harms, Owen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fern Harms. The Rev. J.L. Chapman performed the ceremony Wednesday evening, at 6 o’clock, at the Alliance Gospel Hall, Spokeville. Bouquets of mixed flowers were used to decorate.

The bride had a corsage of pink roses. Her attendant, Miss Helen Krokson, wore a street-length dress of blue silk. Her corsage was of regal lilies.

Best man was Fern Harms Jr. Both he and the bridegroom wore pin stripe teal blue suits.

During the ceremony Mrs. Maurice L. Anderson, Marshfield, sang a vocal solo, "I Love You Truly." Later a dinner was served at the home of the bride’s parents to 24 guests, among whom were the bride’s grandmother, Mrs. Edna Mead, Neillsville; the Rev. and Mrs. Maurice Anderson, Marshfield; Mr. and Mrs. L.F. Harms and Mr. and Mrs. H. Fry, Owen, Wis.

The bride is a graduate of Greenwood High School with the class of ’42. The groom attended Owen High School and is now employed by the Carnation Milk Co. at Owen, Wis.

Mr. and Mrs. Harms left on a wedding trip to northern Wisconsin. After Sept. 1 they will make their home in Owen, Wis.
