Pretty Ceremony Unites Miss Marian Glassburn and Donald Colcord
The lives of Miss Marian Glassburn and Donald Colcord were united in holy matrimony at a pretty ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in the Christian parsonage.  Rev. Charles Brooks, pastor of the Christian church, officiated, reading the single ring ceremony.
Attending the couple were Miss Helen Woods of Tampico, close friend of the bride, and Mason Colcord of Sterling, brother of the bridegroom.  Other guests at the ceremony were the bride's sister, Miss Vida Glassburn, and the bridegroom's mother, Mrs. M. Cornelius.
The bride was lovely in a frock of navy blue sheer, fashioned with a bolero jacket. She wore white gloves and navy blue hat and slippers and carried a colonial bouquet.  The bridesmaid wore a dress of Paris sand crepe with harmonizing accessories and had a corsage of Johanna Hill roses and sweet peas.
A wedding dinner was served to the bridal party in the Hotel Lincoln at six o'clock.  A beautiful wedding cake was the table centerpiece with lighted white tapers placed on either side.  White nutcups were at each place.
Mrs. Colcord attended the schools in Tampico graduating from the Tampico high school with the class of 1933.  She is the assistant technician in the Home hospital and will continue in that capacity.
Mr. Colcord attended the schools of Rock Falls, graduating from high school with the class of 1934.  He is employed at the Russell, Burdsall, Ward Co. plant.
Mr. and Mrs. Colcord have a furnished apartment at 109 East Eighth street.  They have a host of relatives and friends in Sterling and Tampico who wish them happiness in their married life.
