Church Scene of Jones-Glenn Nuptials
The Seymour Herald - 25 November 1954
Miss Joan Jones, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. M. N. Jones, and Gene Glenn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Glenn of Seymour, were married Sunday, Nov. 21, at the Plano Christian church at 2:30 p.m. The double ring ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Cox. Guests were members of the immediate families and intimate friends.
Mrs. Elizabeth Sherrard, pianist, accompanied Mrs. Delores Elgin, who sang "The Wedding Prayer" before the ceremony. The bridal chorus from Wagner's Lohengrin announced the entrance of the bridal party.
Mrs. Betty Harbold, sister of the bride, was matron of honor and Mrs. Eleanor Jones served as bridesmaid.
The groomsmen were Paul Felkner, a friend of the bridegroom, and Dale Jones, brother of the bride. Ushers were Gary Jones, brother of the bride, and Larry Holmes, nephew of the bridegroom.
Given in marriage by her brother, Neil Jones, the bride wore a gown of traditional white satin, fashioned with a tight bodice with a draped shoulder yoke of nylon sheer. The yoke was edged with satin draped in scallops. The full skirt fell into a short train and veil of white illusion was edged in lace and fell to finger tip length from a beaded crown. She carried a bouquet of red roses and wore a gold cross necklace, a gift from the bridegroom.
Mrs. Harbold was gowned in gold embossed cotton. Her flowers were yellow roses. Mrs. Jones' gown was powder blue satin and she carried pink roses.
For her granddaughter's wedding, Mrs. Ollie Jones wore a gray dress and corsage of white carnations.
Baskets of fall flowers lined the altar. At the close of the ceremony the soloist sang, "I Love You Truly." Mendelssohn's wedding march was played as the newly-married couple left the altar. A reception followed in the church parlor.
The three-tier wedding cake was served by Miss Donna Davis, assisted by Mrs. Rex Wells.
Hostesses were Mrs. Herbert Brinkley, Mrs. Ed Holmes and Mrs. Richard Mincks. Miss Carol Glenn had charge of the guest book. The Misses Betty Vruble, Marilyn Joiner and Bonnie Jones arranged the gifts.
The bride used the traditional something old, new, borrowed and blue. For a going-away ensemble, she wore a tan two-piece suit with matching accessories.
Mrs. Glenn is a graduate of Seymour high school and has been employed at Iowa Southern Utilities Co. in Centerville. The bridegroom was graduated from Promise City high school and is engaged in farming. They will make their home on a farm near Promise City.
Out-of-town guests were from Centerville, Corydon, Des Moines, Promise City, Cincinnati, Jerome, Bloomfield, Seymour and DeWitt.
