Carlson, Edith Elizabeth (Marriage - 23 Apr. 1955) 

Pvt. And Mrs. Le Roy Jeske left Monday to return to Turlock, California. Their wedding took place Saturday, April 23, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arvid Carlson, Route 1, Abbotsford. Beautiful potted plants of the bride’s mother and a bouquet of pink and white snapdragons made the setting for the ceremony. 

The wedding vows were exchanged between Edith Elizabeth Carlson and LeRoy Jeske at 1:00 o’clock with C. V. Hinke, justice of peace, officiating. 

The bride was attired in a white rayon shantung street length dress. The Peter Pan collar was trimmed with daisies of lace with rhinestone decorative buttons down the front.
