Thompson, Edith (15 MAY 1940)
Word has been received of the marriage of Fred Earl, formerly of Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), to Mrs. Edith Thompson of Abbotsford on Wednesday, May 15, 1940.
Mr. Earl, a resident of this city for many years, will make his home from now on at Abbotsford, Wis. He recently retired as a rural mail carrier out of the Owen Post Office.
The couple enjoyed a trip through the southern section of the state and Iowa. They visited with Mrs. Earl’s nephew and niece, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Spurney at Dubuque, Ia., before returning home Friday.
Mr. Earl’s friends in Owen extend to him and his bride their best wishes for a long happy wedded life.
