Corp. T.R. Morris Takes Patsy Norris as Bride

Miss Patsy Ann Norris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Norris, 4410 Cottage Lane, Conley, became the bride of Corp. Thomas Ray Morris Saturday afternoon, Oct. 16. Corp. Morris is the son of Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Morris of Temple. The double ring ceremony was performed at the Lake City Tabernacle by the pastor, Rev. Kimsey F. Warr.

Mrs. W. L. Craddock rendered a program of nuptial music and accompanied Billy Palmer, who sang "Because".

The bride chose Mrs. Billy Toomer as her matron of honor. Miss JoAnn Toomer and Becky Cook were bridesmaids. They wore street length sheaths of royal blue velvet with hats and shoes to match. Their only ornament was a strand of pearls. The attendants carried a shower bouquet of white carnations tipped in blue.

Corp. Warren Ikechelberger was best man. Usher-groomsmen were Frank Norris, brother of the bride and Terry Bracknell, nephew of the groom.

The bride entered with her father, who gave her in marriage. Her brunette beauty was enhanced by her gown of lace. The bodice featured a scalloped neckline and long fitted sleeves. The full skirt was fashioned in tiers and ended in a chapel train. Her shoulder length veil fell from a tiara of pearls and rhinestones. The bride carried a white bible covered in lace topped with a yellow throated white orchid and stephanotis. At the conclusion of the ceremony the couple knelt for prayer. As they left the church they passed under an arch of sabers formed by eight friends of the Marine Corp.

A reception followed in the social Hall of the Church. Assisting in entertaining were Mrs. Billy Farr, Mrs. Bill Bracknell, Mrs. Robert McBrayer, sisters of the groom, and Mrs. Billy Palmer.

After a wedding trip the couple will be at home to the friends in the McDonough Heights apartments in Atlanta. The groom is attached to the Sixth Marine Corps District at headquarters in Atlanta. The bride is employed by the Huckabee Transport Corp.

Out-of-town guests were Mrs. Lura Norris, Anniston, Ala. paternal grandmother of the bride; Mrs. Bill Bracknell and children, Temple; Mrs. Robert McBrayer, Houston; Mrs. Ruth Huckeba and daughter, Temple; Mrs. Sidney Hale and children and Robert Norris all of Anniston, and Rev. and Mrs. Melvin Norris and family of Newell, Ala.

Miss Norris is Given Bible by Auxiliary

The Young Woman's Auxiliary of the Lake City Baptist Tabernacle presented a white bible to one of their members, who was to be married. Miss Patsy Norris, whose marriage to Thomas Morris was solemnized Oct 16, was the recipient. The presentation was made at a candlelight service before the prayer service Wednesday evening, Oct. 13. Miss JoAnn Toomer sang, "Thy Word is a Lamp Unto My Feet". Rev. Kimsey War, pastor, presented the bible as he challenged the couple to establish their home upon God's word.
