Etta, Valerie A. #2 (22 NOV 1943)

Wearing a sherwood green gabardine suit, with brown accessories and a corsage of yellow tea roses and baby’s breath. Miss Valerie Ann Etta, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Etta of North Kansas City, Mo., became the bride of George Edward Humke, son of Mr. and Mrs. George H. Humke of Greenwood, in a ceremony performed Monday, Nov. 22, at 9 a.m. in St Patrick’s church in North Kansas City. Her only jewelry was a necklace, a gift of the groom.

The double ring service was read by the Rev. W. F. Gott before the altar, banded with bouquets of gold and bronze chrysanthemums, flanked with tall tapers. Robert Etta, a brother of the bride, sang "On This Day, Oh Beautiful Mother" and "Oh, Lord, I Am Not Worthy." He was accompanied at the organ by Mrs. J. Kelley, who also played Mendelssohn’s wedding march. Mr. Etta gave his daughter in marriage,

Attendants were Mrs. Harry Palms, attired in a brown suit, with matching accessories and a corsage similar to the bride’s, and A. H. LeGault, the bride’s aunt and grandfather, respectively.

Viewing her daughter’s wedding and later the dinner served to 30 guests at the Hotel President, Mrs. Etta wore a black chiffon frock, and the groom’s mother was attired in a brown Bemberg ensemble. Both wore corsages of American Beauty roses and baby’s breath.

When the couple returns from a honeymoon in Chicago, they will reside in Kansas City, where the groom is employed by the North American Airways.

Guests were the groom’s mother, Mrs. Humke, of Greenwood and Mr. LeGault, grandfather of the bride, of Owen.

The Loyal Tribune extends to the newlyweds its wishes for a happy wedded life.
