Derby, Odele E. (Marriage - 30 Dec. 1939)

Miss Odele E. Derby, 208 E. Bakerville street, and Lawrence A Vandehey, Colby, exchanged marriage vows Saturday morning at an 8:30 o'clock ceremony performed at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, with the Rt. Rev. Msgr. H. P. Toeller officiating.

During the ceremony Miss Derby's four brothers George, Robert, Lloyd and Ray, accompanied by Mrs. Harry Brinkman at the organ sang "Oh Sacred Heart," "Oh Love Divine," "Beautiful Mother," "Oh Lord I Am Not Worthy," and "Adeste Fideles." Mrs. Brinkman played "Ave Maria" as an organ solo.

Miss Derby was attired in a grape-wine street-length dress with matching accessories and carried a rosary. Miss Ramona Creed, her bridesmaid, wore a nile green street-length dress with brown accessories. Both wore corsages of sweet peas and roses. Charles Derby attended as best man.
