Molle, Vernetta #3 (29 DEC 1950)

St. Katherine’s Episcopal Church, Owen, was the scene of a lovely wedding ceremony which united Miss Vernetta Molle and Duane Phillips in marriage. The nuptial rites were read by Dr. K. O. Crosby at two o’clock Friday afternoon, Dec. 29th, 1950.

The bride, daughter of Adolph Molle, wore rust brown suit with brown accessories and a corsage of yellow roses. Attending her as bridesmaids were Delores Hendrickson and Mrs. Russell Phillips. Miss Hendrickson wore a brown suit with green accessories while Mrs. Phillips wore a green suit with brown accessories. Each wore corsages of yellow and white carnations.

Attending the bridegroom as best man was Gaylord Fakes, a close friend, while his brother Russell served as groomsman.

Immediately following the ceremony the couple received their friends at a reception held in the Community Hall. The hall was decorated in keeping with the yuletide season as was the bridal party’s table, which had Christmas candles and flowers.
