Popular Young Couple Plight Marriage Vows
Miss Dorothy M. Lane And George Hunsberger Wed This Morning
This morning at 10 o'clock Miss Dorothy Madolyn Lane, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Grover C. Lane, and George Hunsberger, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Hunsberger of Rock Falls, plighted their marriage troth.  The ceremony took place in the home of the Rev. Harry E. Shiffer, pastor of the Rock Falls Christian church.
Attending the couple were their former classmates at Rock Falls township high school, Miss Florence Walker, now a student nurse at the Methodist hospital in Peoria, and Elwood Rakow.  The single ring service was performed.
The pretty bride's attire was a new fall tunic frock of Hunter's green alpaca silk, a chic black hat and black accessories. She wore a shoulder corsage of Johanna Hill roses and blue delphinium.  Miss Walker had on a black crepe dress with white accessories and her flowers were Talisman roses and gladioli.
From the pastor's home the bridal party motored to Dixon where the wedding dinner was served at the Coffee House.  The newlyweds left from Dixon on a short honeymoon to the lakes in the north.  A traveling suit of Blossom blue knit boucle and harmonizing accessores was worn by the bride for the trip.
Today's bridal pair are very popular in Sterling and Rock Falls and enjoy a large circle of friends.  Mrs. Hunsberger is a young lady of charm, personality and beauty.  She was graduated from Rock Falls township high school in 1933 and is employed at the Charles O. Larson Co.   Mr. Hunsberger graduated the year before his bride from the same school where they were sweethearts.  He was prominent in athletics and a star basketball player.  He holds a position with the National Mfg. Co.
For the present Mr. and Mrs. Hunsberger will reside with her parents at 302 East Third street, Rock Falls. After September 20, the couple expect to be at home in an apartment at 204 East Third street, Rock Falls, which they will furnish complete.
Their host of friends are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to offer best wishes to the newlyweds upon their return to Rock Falls.
