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

The marriage of Miss Odele E. Derby, daughter of Mrs. Louise Derby, Marshfield, and Lawrence A. Vandehey, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. E. Vandehey, Colby, was solemnized last Saturday morning at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic church in Marshfield by the Rev. H. P. Toeller.

The bride’s four brothers, George, Robert, Lloyd and Ray, accompanied by Mrs. Harry Brinkman, organist, sang several numbers during the nuptial high mass and marriage ceremony.

The bride wore a grape-wine street-length dress with matching accessories and her only attendant, Miss Ramona Creed, was attired in a street-length dress of nile green, with brown accessories. Both wore corsage bouquets of sweet peas and roses. Charles Derby attended as best man.

A dinner was served to the immediate families at the home of the bride’s mother. Mr. and Mrs. D. E. Vandehey and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wiedenhoeft, Colby, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Niebauer and family and Ralph Vandehey, Wisconsin Rapids, and Mr. and Mrs. Maynard Vandehey, Duluth, were the out-of-town guests. The couple will reside in Colby, Wis.
