Five pastors, all relatives of the bride and groom, took part in the ceremony when Miss Deloris Lucille Fleming, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. R. J. Fleming, 207 E. Third St. Marshfield and George Headley Jr., son of Rev. and Mrs. George Headley Lindewald, N. J., repeated their marriage vows at the First Methodist Church at Marshfield, Wednesday at 8 p. m.

The maid of honor, Miss Ruth Headley, sister of the groom, wore a yellow satin gown and a matching bonnet. She carried a colonial bouquet of mixed flowers. The bridesmaid, Miss Helen Hodgson, roommate of the bride while she was in nurses training, was dressed in blue. Darla Jean Capes, 1300 E.
