Miss Lillie Elizabeth Repp and Mr. Henry J. Garrelts were united in marriage at the home of the bride's parents north of Roberts Thursday afternoon, February 14, 1918 at two o'clock, Rev. Schumacher of Melvin, officiating.
Just at the appointed time Reuben Ebert played the wedding march and the bridal couple came in attended by Miss Lena Kietzman bridesmaid and Mr. Louis Phelsfield, best man.
The bride is an amiable young daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Repp and has many friends in this vicinity. She was dressed in a beautiful gown of white crepe de Chine and was attended by her cousin, Lena Kietzman who also wore white crepe de Chine. The groom is an industrious young farmer who has spent the past two years near Roberts. He wore navy blue and the best man, Louis Phelsfield, cousin of the groom, also wore navy blue.
Only the near relatives were present. After the ceremony a bounteous dinner was served.
The young bridal pair left that evening for Gilman where they will spend several days, after which they will reside on the farm where the brides parents now live. Mr. and Mrs. Repp will move to Roberts.
The Herald joins the friends in congratulations.
