Rowe, Betty Lou (Marriage - 27 Feb. 1943)

Mrs. V. C. Burrow, Fresno, Calif., informs The Press that her niece, Miss Betty Lou Rowe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clement A. Rowe, of Riverside, Calif., was married to Frederick Walter Brown, February 27, 1943, at the home of the bride’s parents. Rev. Stanley McKee pastor of the First Methodist Church read the service in the presence of relatives and friends. The vows were exchanged before an altar of flowers, ferns and palms. The bride was given in marriage by her father.

For her wedding, the bride wore a white marquisette dress with low bodice and inset skirt. A coronet of orange blossoms held her veil of white net. She carried a white bible marked with orchid and white sweet peas. Miss Betty Reavis, her only attendant, wore a blue dress with lace blouse, carrying a shower bouquet of white sweet peas and rosebuds. Donovan Rowe, a cousin of the bride, was best man.

After the ceremony other guests joined the wedding party for the reception. Miss Christine Hansen of Santa Ana and Miss Velma Brown of Beaumont, sister of the bridegroom, served cake and punch from a table decorated with sweet peas and candles.

Mrs. Burrows, Fresno, her daughter, Mrs. Ernest Wilson of Pittsburg, Mr. and Mrs. Robert E. Rowe and Jack Rowe, Santa Ana, were among the out-of-town guests.

Mrs. Brown, a student at Riverside junior college, will continue her studies while her husband is in training at the preflight school in Fresno.

The bride is a granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Rowe, formerly of Neillsville, being the daughter of their youngest son, Clement.
