Peterson, Arlene (Marriage - 22 September 1956) 

When Leroy A. Collinson and his bride, the former Arlene Peterson, return from a wedding trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota, they will make their home on a farm on Route 2, Spencer.  The young couple was married Saturday, September 22, at the Loyal Methodist Church.  Parents of the newlyweds are Carl F. Peterson of Loyal, and Mr. and Mrs. George Collinson, Sr., Rt. 2, Spencer.  

A waltz length gown of nylon tulle over white satin was worn by the bride.  Tiers of Alencon type lace and nylon tulle were intertwined on the sides of the full bouffant skirt.  The Alencon lace bodice was topped with a V neckline and featured long, pointed sleeves.  Her fingertip veil was of imported illusion net with seed pearl trim. 

Mrs. Georgia Benedict, Loyal, was maid of honor, and Miss Virginia Link, Milwaukee, served as her cousin’s bridesmaid. They wore waltz length strapless gowns with cover-up jackets and Chantilly lace tunic skirts featured with floral pickups at intervals. 

Harold Collinson, Loyal, was bestman for his brother, and Robert Prust, Spencer, was groomsman.  Ushers were Lloyd Collinson, Loyal, another brother of the groom, and William Lulloff, Loyal. 

The new Mr. and Mrs. Collinson were greeted by 100 guests at a reception in the church parlors. This was followed by a luncheon there.  

The bride is a 1950 graduate of the Loyal High School and is employed as a dental assistant by Dr. G. W. Nelson, Loyal.  The groom who attended high school at Thomson, Ill., and served in the U. S. army for two years, is farming.
