Mr. and Mrs. W. C. L. Williams announce the wedding of their daughter, Miss Jeanette Ann Williams, to Neil Bright at half past six o’clock, Thursdays evening, September 28, 1939. The marriage lines were read by Rev. Harold Sweezey in the Prairie Union parsonage. The dining room was candle lighted and the couple stood in the same place as did the bride’s grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur E. Williams, (Ella Lambert) when they were married forty-nine years ago this coming Christmas.
The bride’s wedding dress was of wine colored crepe. Mr. and Mrs. Elton Steadman were the only attendants. Mrs. Steadman wore her wedding dress for the occasion. After the wedding, both couples drove to Auburn for a theatre party.
Mrs. Bright finished eighth grade in her home district at Higgins school and graduated from Shubert high school with class of 1939. She was an excellent student, and was awarded a scholarship; was very prominent in the school activities; was a member of the glee club and band, of the G. A. A. and took part in the senior play.
During high school days, Mrs. Bright spent much time with her grandmother, Mrs. Arthur Williams, and thus was not only near school, but also near to take advantage of the many opportunities to serve Prairie Union church, of which she is a member; is secretary of the Sunday school; is a worker in B. Y. P. U. and a member of Mrs. Bert Steadman’s Sunday school class.
Mr. Bright is a son of Clarence Bright. He is a graduate of Shubert high school class of 1937. Mr. Bright has been farming with his father, and also farming land for himself. At present, he is employed at the express office in Auburn, and he and his bride have been staying with relatives. He resumed work Tuesday after a short leave of absence; and while at Auburn they are at home with Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bright.
Mr. and Mrs. Bright are very popular and highly esteemed. Their wedding unites prominent and influential families.
Mr. and Mrs. Bright spent Saturday night and Sunday with cousins, Mr. and Mrs. John Bright near Dawson. A group of the young relatives and friends went to the home after attending picture shows, and gave the bridal couple a charivari party. They were invited indoors and after enjoying treats, took their departure while showering “Neil and Jeanette” with congratulations.
This Saturday afternoon the W. W. G. girls of Prairie Union church aided by the ladies of the Missionary Society give a miscellaneous shower for the bride at the home of Mrs. Arthur Williams.
