St. John's Presbyterian Church, Grimsby, was the scene of a spring wedding, on Saturday afternoon, May 19, when Shirley Irene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mason, became the bride of Flight-Sgt. John Raymond Lyon, R.C.A.F., son of Mr. and Mrs. William Lyon, of Bartonville. Rev. Francis McAvoy conducted the ceremony. The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a long white satin and net frock with fingertip-length veil, and carried a bouquet of pale pink roses, sweet peas and snapdragon. The bridesmaid, Miss Ruth Shelton, gowned in turquoise blue crepe, carried pink roses. The best man was P.O. Fred West, R.C.A.F., of North Bay, a fellow crewman of the groom overseas. Mr. Louis Puddicombe, of Winona, and Mr. Bruce Mason were ushers. A reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, where a buffet supper was served to 65 guests. The bride's mother wore pale blue crepe with white accessories; the groom's mother, navy blue, and both wore a corsage bouquet of pink rosebuds. The house was decorated with pink tulips and lilacs. For their honeymoon trip to Toronto and Muskoka, the bride wore powder blue with brown accessories. The young couple will reside in Hamilton. Following the reception, several of the guests went on to the Brant Inn for dancing. An interesting note was the fact that two members of the aircrew with which the groom served overseas were able to attend.
