Myers, Helen (20 FEB 1954)


A candle lighted altar decorated with arrangements of gladioli was the setting for the wedding of Miss Helen Myers of Stockton, Calif., and AT3 Robert D. Poppe, USN, Alameda, Calif., Feb. 20th, 1954.  The wedding was held at 8 p.m. in the chapel of the Naval Air Station with a Navy Chaplain, Robert Canfield, performing the double ring ceremony. Traditional wedding music was played throughout the ceremony.


The bride appeared wearing a light blue linen suit trimmed with navy and white, with accessories of white.  Her corsage was of white carnations with satin streamers and ties.  She carried a small white bible and carried out the age old custom of something old, new, borrowed and blue.


The bride was attended by Mrs. Leon Caldwell of Alameda as bridesmaid, and she was dressed in a powder blue knit suit with pastel pink accessories.  Her corsage was of pink carnations.  Leon Caldwell of Alameda served the groom as best man.


Immediately following the wedding a reception was held in the private dining room of Tim’s Restaurant in Alameda.  Reception guests enjoyed organ music and the bride and groom were honored with a special dedication of "Always" sung by the organist.


The bride is a daughter of Marvin Myers of West Point, Calif., and Mrs. Charles Bass of Mena, Ark.  She is a graduate of Acorn High School and was formerly employed in the office of Teague Leather Goods Co. in Mena.  For the past six months she had been employed as a bookkeeper in the Frank M. Wilson Co. incorporated, of Stockton, Calif.


The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Poppe of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), and is a graduate of the high school, and is at present time serving as a radar technician at the Alameda Naval Air Station.


The young couple is now at home at 1502 Grant St., Apartment 1, Alameda, Calif.


Friends and relatives from Oakland, Stockton and Alameda attended the wedding and reception.
