Montgomery Schneberger Nuptials

The marriage of Miss Frances Montgomery, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Montgomery, to George Fred Schneberger, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Schneberger, of Arlington Heights, Illinois, took place Wednesday afternoon, May 15th, at 1 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s parents.

Before the ceremony, Dorothy Pinkston of St. Joseph sang a solo, “Until.”  Then Mrs. Nell McRoberts, aunt of the bride, played Mendelsohn’s wedding march, to which four brides maids, Helen Nixon, of Evanston, Illinois, Gladys N_baum, of Storm Lake, Iowa, Emily Schneberger, of Arlington Heights, Illinois and Carrie Margaret Baker, of Maryville, marched to the altar at the west end of the room, which was banked with white spring flowers.  Each bride’s maid carried a bouquet of pink and white Killarney roses tied with a large bow of pink chiffon.  Miss Laura McRoberts, maid of honor and cousin of the bride, followed, dressed in pink organdy and carrying a large bunch of Killarney roses.

The bride, dressed in a white georgette and net beaded gown and carrying a shower bouquet of sweet peas and lilies of the valley, was given away in marriage by her father. Her veil of tulle was caught in her hair by lilies of the valley.  She was met at the altar by the groom and the best man, Mr. Charles Graham of Sioux City, Iowa.  They are both members of the Delta Upsilon fraternity of Northwestern University.

Rev. W. H. Welton, an old friend of the family, performed the double ring ceremony.

Only the immediate family witnessed the wedding.

Three of the bridesmaids and Miss Della Whittemore, of Sioux City, Iowa, who presided at the punch bowl, were Kappa Delta sorority sisters of the bride at Northwestern University.

After the wedding a delicious two course luncheon was served to the guests.

The bride and groom left in the afternoon for Kansas City, from where they will go to visit Neal Montgomery, brother of the bride, in Dallas, Texas, and after June 1st they will be at home in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

The News wishes to add right here that Frances was a sensible girl possessed of an education that made her admired by all who knew her and one who after having graduated from college never failed to recognize those who have known her all her life.  We wish her happiness and success all through the journey of life.
