Pascoe, Darlene (Marriage - 7 Nov. 1953) 

Miss Darlene Pascoe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Pascoe, and Miles L. Galiger, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Galiger, of Thorp, exchanged marriage vows in a double ring ceremony, Saturday afternoon at 3:00 o’clock, at the First Presbyterian church, at Abbotsford, with the Rev. Richard Harrison officiating. 

Preceding the ceremony, the Rev. William Knobloch sang, "Because," and "The Wedding Prayer," accompanied by Mrs. J. F. Sampson. Miss Lois Ehrenreich played the wedding marches. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white gown with Chantilly lace bodice and waltz length skirt of net over taffeta. A small cap of lace and satin, trimmed with pearls, held her finger tip length veil. She carried a colonial bouquet, centered with pink roses and surrounded by white baby mums and stephanotis. 

Attending her were Mrs. C. Strobach, a friend, of Medford, as matron of honor, and Miss Barbara Galiger, sister of the groom, of Thorp, as bridesmaid. They wore identical gowns of blue net over taffeta with net stoles and carried fan bouquets of autumn baby mums. Similar flowers adorned their pleated white tulle head bands. 

Bob Butterfield, a friend of the groom, served as best man and Frank Galiger, a brother, was usher. Both are from Thorp. 

The bride’s mother wore a dark blue dress, accented by a corsage of pink roses and white baby mums. The groom’s mother also wore a blue dress and had a similar corsage. 

Following the ceremony, a reception attended by 45 guests, was held at the home of the bride’s parents. A tiered cake, decorated with pink roses and topped with a miniature bride and groom, autumn mums, streamers and bells, served as home decorations. 

Mr. and Mrs. Galiger left on a few days’ honeymoon trip to the eastern part of the state and are now making their home in Abbotsford. Mr. Galiger is employed at the Lewis Container, at Colby. Prior to her marriage, the bride, a graduate of Taylor County Normal, taught school.
