As Mrs. Worley played the traditional wedding march Barbara, escorted by her father, came down the stairs into the living room to an improvised altar in front of the picture window which was decorated on either side with arrangements of mixed colors of gladioli.
Rev. Edmond Worley read the double ring service. The bride and bridegroom had their attendants, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Schutz, whom they had served as bridesmaid and best man several weeks previous. The bride and her attendant wore lace dresses over silk of ballerina length. Barbara chose a cream beige and wore a small becoming brown hat with beaded veil trim, and Phylis selected light blue with a feathered brown hat. Each carried a colonial bouquet. The bride's bouquet was red rosebuds with white mums and the bridemaid's was yellow rosebuds and white mums.
Mrs. Schneider chose a dark green dress and black accessories and Mrs. Peterson, a brown dress with green hat. Each had identical shoulder corsages of yellow rosebuds and white button mums.
A delicious wedding dinner was served to a group at the Lowell Ranch House. A beautiful wedding cake and the bride's and bridemaid's bouquets decorated the center of the table.
The young couple left immediately for a short trip through the Ozarks. The groom has been recalled into active service and reports at Fort Lewis, Washington, October 19th.
Both young people are graduates of Lowell high school with the class of 1946. Barbara entered nurses training at Gary Methodist hospital and graduated in 1949, continued there until she accepted her present position in the office of Dr. Mirro at Lowell.
