Sherman, Mary Adelle (8 OCT 1965)

A new home at 635 Chalamette Street, Cheyenne, Wyoming was ready for the new Mr. and Mrs. James Rankl on their return from a honeymoon trip to the Colorado Rockies.

James Rankl of Cheyenne, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Rankl of Abbotsford, and Mary Adelle Sheman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Brand, all of Cheyenne, repeated their marriage promises on Friday, October 8, 1965 at the First Methodist Church, Cheyenne.

The Rev. Warren Dirks officiated at the double ring ceremony at 5 o’clock before the altar adorned with white and yellow mums and lighted candles. Mrs. Dirks was the organist.

The four children of the bride preceded her to the altar as she approached, escorted by her father.

Valarie, dressed in blue velvet with a white mum in her her, lighted the candles. Miss Debra Sherman of Ogden, Utah served as maid of honor, and wore a yellow dress made like the bride’s, and a headpiece of yellow satin with a yellow mum. She carried a large white mum with yellow streamers. Caroline, in a rose colored velvet dress, and a mum in her hair, was flower girl, and Karl was the ring bearer.

For her wedding the bride chose a champagne colored street length dress with empire styling and an A-line waist detailed with beads. She wore a short matching veil and carried a white Bible on which was placed a yellow throated orchid.

The mothers of the bridal couple were presented with corsages of yellow rose buds.

A wedding reception followed the ceremony and dinner for the bridal party and immediate families was served at the home of the bride.

Mr. Rankl is a 1967 graduate of the University of Wisconsin and is a geologist, employed at the United States Geological Survey at Cheyenne. His bride attended Central High School at Cheyenne and is employed at the Wyoming State Capitol for the Wyoming State Land Commission.

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Rankl of Abbotsford attended the wedding.
