At the evening hour an excellent wedding dinner was served at the home of the bride, there being a large number of the immediate relatives present.
Mr. and Mrs. Worley will make their home in Lowell. For the present they are stopping at the home of the bride.
The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Worley and his bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B.B. Ruble. Both the young people are among our most highly respected citizens and we join their host of friends in extending congratulations and best wishes.
The following July 13, 1950, Lowell Tribune article was found on page 1, column 2:
The Worleys received many unexpected but lovely gifts and congratulatory cards, also a silver coin tree.
Twenty-one years ago the couple purchased a house on Freemont St. and through the wonderful team work which they have experienced throughout their 25 years of happily married life, have established a real home where they welcome friends at any time.
The bride of 25 years ago greeted her guests in a dress of pink sheer and wore a corsage of white carnations, the groom's boutonniere was a white carnation, gifts of their daughters, Mrs. Lester (Dorthea Mae) Guritz and Mrs. Clyde (Norma Lee) Zark, and granddaughter Linda Guritz.
Comparing their appearance pictured on their wedding day with their appearance on their Silver Anniversary, it was agreed that after 25 years of happiness they were looking younger. Elmer and Blanche are looking forward to another celebration 25 years hence, when they mark their 50th anniversary.
The lovely decorations and refreshments were arranged by the couple's sisters, Mrs. Shelia Henry and Mrs. John C. Brown, and their two daughters.
Services at the Sheets Funeral Home July 9 were conducted by pastor, Charles Hochmuth. Burial was at Lowell Memorial Cemetery.
Mrs. Worley had been a member of the Church of Christ, Indian Trail Grange and the Senior Citizens Club.
