This December I would like to honor my parents and Earl’s parents by posting about their marriage, my mom and dad eighty years ago and Earl’s parents ninety five years ago from this December.
Both were married in the Temple on a wintery day Fifteen Years and four days apart.
Earl parents were married in the Salt Lake Temple and took a train from Bancroft, Idaho with two other couples who also married in the Salt Lake Temple. Their names were of Bill Higginson and Fanny McClellan and Leo Johnson and Millie Grant. Gladys writes that the train was to arrive at ten o’clock in the morning but it arrived very late, at four in the afternoon. But, friend and relatives waited with them and just as they were to board the train a shower of rice hit them full in the face. Gladys doesn't give any more details of her wedding day.
My parents drove with my Grandmother Tomlinson and Dad’s younger sister Louise. I wrote about their marriage in a 2010 post. If you would like to read about it go to this site. Married on the shortest day of the year.
Earl and I love our parents. They gave us many wonderful memories and taught us values to follow throughout our lives.
