--------- Orava, Wilma (Marriage - 7 AUG 1929)

A pretty home wedding occurred on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 1929, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gus Silampa, two miles south and one-half mile east of Owen, Clark County, Wis., when Harry S. Silampa of the town of Green Grove and Miss Wilma Orava of Detroit, Mich., were united in marriage, the Rev. W. P. Powell of the First Congregational Church of Owen, officiating.

A sister of the groom, Miss Irene L. Silampa, was bridesmaid, and Mr. A. Wepling, acted as groomsman. After the ceremony a large company of relatives and friends sat down to a table arranged under the trees where a bountiful wedding dinner was served.

The bridal party left the following day for Detroit, Mich., where they will make their future home, and with them goes the best wishes of a host of friends for a long and happy wedded life.
