Full Text

In Fifty United Church, Winona, on Saturday afternoon, September 15, the wedding was solemnized of Edith Mary, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Coker, Winona, and Floyd Ray Furry, Hamilton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Furry, Port Colborne. The Rev. D.E.Foster officiated.

The bride, whose father gave her away, wore a gown of white lace over satin fashioned with a pearl-edged Peter Pan collar, her full skirt extending into a train. Her fingertip-length veil was gathered into a smocked headdress trimmed with seed pearls and she carried Ester Reed daisies and ivy.

Mrs. Leonard Coker, gowned in pink taffeta, and Miss Nellie Koudys, in blue, attended the bride. Their gowns had Bertha collars and full skirts, and their flowered headdresses matched their bouquets of pink-tinted daisies.

Best man was Mr. David Furry, Los Angeles, Calif., and ushers were Mr. George Elliot, Stoney Creek, and Mr. Edgar Elliott, Lowbanks. Mr. George Smith presided at the organ, and accompanied Mrs. Marguerite Williams, Dunnville, who sang.

About 60 guests were welcomed by the bride's mother, who was attired in teal blue with navy accessories and a pink chrysanthemum corsage. The groom's mother wore black taffeta trimmed with rhinestones, her accessories being black, and her corsage, white 'mums.

Leaving for their wedding trip by motor to Kentucky, the bride went away in a brown suit with cocoa brown hat and brown snake-skin accessories. In her corsage were yellow gladioli. The couple will live at Winona.
