The Loyal Tribune 06 January 1944

Cook, Jean (25 DEC 1943)

Attired in a street-length gabardine dress, with green accessories and a corsage of pink roses and white pompoms, Miss Jean Cook, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Cook of Marathon, exchanged marriage vows with Harold Gardner, son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gardner of Loyal on Christmas afternoon. The ceremony took place in St. John’s Reformed church at Colby, with the Rev. David Grether officiating.

The bride’s only attendant was Miss Lorea Gardner of Loyal, sister of the bridegroom, who wore a soldier blue crepe dress, with black accessories, and had a corsage of yellow roses and white pompoms. Donald Cook, S2/c, who was home on a leave from New Orleans, La., naval station, attended as best man.

A wedding dinner, with covers for 24, was served at the home of the bride’s parents, which was decorated for the event with streamers of pink and white.

Guests were Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Cook and Mr. and Mrs. William Longhead and son, Billy, of Colby, Harold Kollmansberger and Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gardner and daughters, Lorea and Velma, and son, Vern, of Loyal, and Mr. and Mrs. Donald Sommers and daughter, Barbara, of Owen.

The couple will reside on the former Hobart Schwieso farm near Loyal, where they are now at home to their friends.

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