Alma Groover Wed to Captain

In a double ring ceremony at the Oxford Methodist Church February 16, Alma L. Groover, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Groover of Ortonville, became the bride of Capt. Russell O. Gage, son of Mr. and Mrs. Guy E. Gage of Oakland, California.

Rev. George Woomer, pastor of the church, performed the ceremony.

Mrs. Gage, given in marriage by her father, wore a teal blue gabardine suit with brown accessories. Her corsage was pink asaleas [sic] and roses. Mrs. Don Francis, the bride’s sister and only attendant, wore a grey ensemble with a corsage of pink roses.

Capt. Gage was attended by Perry Groover. Maurice Groover and Lester Younker acted as ushers.

For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Groover chose a navy two-piece dress with matching accessories and a corsage of pink roses.

The reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents. Guests were present from Oxford, Ortonville, Pontiac, Detroit, Ypsilanti and Imlay City.

Mrs. Gage is a graduate of St. Joseph Mercy School of Nursing and for the past three years has been in the Army Nurses’ Corps, serving in the South Pacific. Capt. Gage is on terminal leave from the U.S. Army Infantry after thirty eight months in the South Pacific forces.

Following a short trip to the East Coast, Capt. and Mrs. Gage will make their home in Oakland, Calif.
