Blodgett, Irene M. (14 JUN 1941)

A lovely wedding service was solemnized in the Curtiss Evangelical Lutheran church at Curtiss, Saturday, June 14, at 11:00 a. m., amid a setting of beautiful flowers and roses built up to resemble a vine and a large bouquet, a gift of close friends, when Miss Irene Mildred Blodgett, daughter of Mrs. Laura Blodgett of Abbotsford exchanged the holy vows of matrimony with William T.
