Her illusion veil was held in place by pearl-trimmed taffeta roses and she carried a crescent shaped bouquet of roses with fern fronds and lemon leaves. Local resident Thomas Gould was best man and the bridegroom's brother, James Beeker, was usher along with Thomas Bcety and Jerry Jackson of Kokomo and James Hill of Park Ridge, Ill. Mrs. Philip L.
