A lightly edited transcription of a page 1 article in the 28 Jun 1917 Simcoe Reformer newspaper.


A marriage of great interest to many Simcoians was solemnized in Trinity Church at 2:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. 

The principals were Mr. Earl Bruce Thompson, a traveling salesman for Lever Bros. of Toronto, and Miss Winnifred, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Hitchcock of Simcoe.

The groom was born here, being a son of Mr. Charles Thompson, a lifelong employee of the Grand Trunk Railway. The bride's family have been residents of Simcoe for a number of years. Both young people are well known and deservedly popular.

The marriage was performed by Rev. A. B. Farney in the presence of a few invited guests, the immediate relatives of the contracting parties, and a church full of friends.

The groom was accompanied to the alter by his friend, a Mr. Maxwell, also of the Lever Bros.' staff. The bride was unattended.

After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hitchcock, where a few hours were spent enjoyably by the wedding guests.

Mr. and Mrs. Thompson left by the 7:15 p.m. radical for a short honeymoon. They are to make their home in Simcoe, where, on College Avenue, a fine new residence is approaching completion for them.
