Anderson, Geraldine Mildred (Marriage - 17 July 1954) 

Miss Geraldine Mildred Anderson became the bride of Clarence William Geary, Saturday evening, July 17, during a candle light service at the First Presbyterian church at 7:30. The Rev. Richard Harrison officiated at the double ring ceremony during which Herbert Juneau sang "The Lord’s Prayer," and "O Perfect Love." Mrs. J. F. Samson was the accompanist. 

The bride, given in marriage by her father, Kenneth Anderson, chose a gown of rose point lace over satin designed with a scalloped scoop neckline and long sleeves that came to points over the hands. The waltz length skirt of lace over satin was topped with two fully gathered skirts of nylon tulle. Her veil was finger tip length secured by a Juliet cap of seed pearls, and her bouquet was an arrangement of red roses, white gladioli and stephanotis. 

Mrs. Clifford Nenzel, sister of the groom, was matron of honor and Miss Sandra Fults, cousin of the bride, was bridesmaid. Short sleeved lace jackets with small, pointed collars, strapless bodices of chantilly lace over taffeta and tiered nylon net over taffeta waltz length skirts were features of the green and orchid gowns worn by the matron of honor and the bridesmaids, respectively. They carried bouquets of orchid, green and white carnations. 

Miss Sandra Nenzel, three year old niece of the groom, in a white dress, identical to that of the bride, was the flower girl. Gerald Fults, four year old cousin of the bride, was ringbearer. 

The groom, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Geary, of Curtiss, was attended by his brother-in-law, Clifford Nenzel, as best man, and Robert Anderson, brother of the bride. 

Kenneth Anderson, another brother of the bride, and Donald Koerner, were ushers. 

Mrs. Anderson, the bride’s step-mother, wore a dress of yellow nylon with chartreuse accessories. Her corsage was made of white carnations with red flecks, and stephanotis. Mrs. Geary, mother of the groom, wore a light blue linen dress with white accessories and a corsage of red roses. 

Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the church parlors and later a midnight supper was served at the Anderson home to about 75 guests.
