Stuve, Virginia (10 JUN 1947)

On the evening of June 10, 1947, the Loyal Free Methodist Church was the scene of a lovely wedding, when Virginia Stuve of this city (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.) became the bride of Jesse Bonney of Wessington Spring, S.D. The church was beautifully decorated with an arch of lilacs across the front and large baskets of purple and white lilacs on either side. Mary Stuve, sister of the bride, accompanied by Alice Fensome, sang "Love Divine" and "Because" and also played the wedding march.

The bride was lovely in a white satin gown, with veil and bouquet of yellow roses. The bridesmaid, Phyllis Stuve, another sister of the bride, was dressed in a floor length gown of pink. The groom was attended by his brother, Harry Bonney.

The Rev. Elmer Parsons, dean of Wessington Springs College, performed the ceremony.

Mrs. Bonney is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Stuve of Owen, and is a teacher by profession. Mr. Bonney graduated from the Wessington Spring College this spring and is preparing to enter the ministry. He will complete his theological training at Seattle, Wash., college, where he and his bride have gone.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents.

Out of state guests were Mr. Bonney’s mother, his sister Naomi, his brother Harry, and the Rev. Mr. Parsons, all of Wessington Springs.
