Erickson, Jeanne (Marriage - 24 September 1949)

Miss Jeanne Erickson, daughter of Mrs. Florence Erickson of Merrillan, became the bride of Harry Rosenquist, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Rosenquist of Withee, in a ceremony performed in Zion Evangelical Reformed Church here last Saturday afternoon by the Rev. N. J. Dechant.

The bride was given in marriage by her father-in-law to be. She wore a satin gown with a full skirt covered by a net with appliquéd satin leaves and a long train, and a fingertip veil fell from a crown of seed pearls. She carried a bouquet of red roses and white baby ‘mums.

Maid of honor was Miss Elaine Erickson, a sister of the bride, who wore a taffeta dress of pale green and a picture hat of taffeta and net. She carried a heart-shaped bouquet of yellow ‘mums.
