Miss Rhea Colby, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Colby of Unity, became the bride of Felix Dietsche, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Dietsche, during a nuptial high mass at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, Monday morning at 8:30. The Rev. C. D. Brady read the mass and marriage service.

Baskets of fall flowers and vases of carnations were place on the communion rail and altar of the church.

The bride wore a street length frock of wine colored transparent velvet with matching hat. Her corsage was of yellow Talisman roses, ? and wine baby asters, and gypsophilia.
