Marson, Cynthia (SEP 1936)

Word has been received here of the recent wedding of Harold Crane of Manawa, former Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.) resident, and Miss Cynthia Marson of Clintonville, which took place the latter part of September at the Methodist Episcopal Church at Clintonville.

The bride, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.T. Marson, wore a gown of ivory cut velvet and carried a bouquet of American Pride ivory roses, Bouvardia and baby breath. The veil was of ivory tulle and fitted, cap style, to her head with a chin strap to secure it. An off the face style was effected by a row of orange blossoms across the front of the cap.

Miss Marson was preceded by her matron of honor, Mrs. Carl Rulseh, who was attired in a short sleeved ruby colored tunic of chiffon velvet, and carried a bouquet of pink briar cliff roses, white snapdragons and baby breath.

Four bridesmaids, Elaine Roach in blue chiffon velvet, June Spearbraker in purple, Harriet Quail in copper tile and Helen Heuer in bronze green, carried bouquets of Joan Hill salmon yellow roses and baby breath. The matron of honor and the bridesmaids also wore flowers in their hair to match the bouquets they carried.

The ushers, Robert Mickeljon, Dr. Roger Laughrin and Ralph Quimby of Manawa, and Gordon Wyatt of Clintonville, cousin of the bride, had boutonnieres of corresponding to the ladies bouquets. The groom was attended by Earl McPeak of New London.

With the bridal party at the altar, Mrs. Forest Schafer of Marion sang "Because", accompanied by Mrs. J. Devine who also accompanied her when she sang "For You Alone" at the opening of the service.

The church was decorated with large baskets of gladioli on either side of the altar and a large basket of pink dahlias with delphinium and white pompon dahlias place at the back. Two tal tapers were placed, one on each side of the altar.

A reception for about 200 guests was held at the Hotel Marson immediately following the ceremony. The bride graduated from Clintonville High School in 1931, after which she attended training school for nurses at St. Luke’s Hospital at Chicago and Prospect Hall at Milwaukee. The groom, son of Dr. and Mrs. L.H. Crane of Manawa, is employed in the Farmers’ State Bank there.

The young couple will make their future home at Manawa after a trip to Washington, D.C., Norfolk, Virginia and other places of interest enroute.

Harold is well remembered here and his many friends join us in wishing him and his bride the best of happiness and success in future years.
