Miss Maxine Slowey And S/Sgt. Edw. Lanctot United Here —
Yankton Press & Dakotan, August 14, 1944.
Sacred Heart church was the scene here yesterday of a pretty nine o’clock wedding ceremony uniting Miss Maxine Slowey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Slowey, Yankton, and Staff Sergeant Edward Lanctot, returned member of the 147th F.A., and son of Mrs. Alice Lanctot also of Yankton.
The Rev. Msgr. Lawrence Link read the single ring nuptial service and special hymns in addition to the mass were sung by Sisters Mary Jane, Jeanette, Albin, Julia and Gladys, all of Sacred Heart convent.
A wedding gown of white taffeta and net styled with bouffant skirt and shirred bodice was worn by the bride. Her fingertip veil was held in place by a small coronet, and along with a white pearl rosary, she carried a colonial bouquet of red rosebuds.
Mrs. Donald Perry was her sister’s matron of honor and she wore a pastel blue gown of silk jersey and net. As bridesmaid, Miss Delores Huber wore a similar gown, and both wore matching shoulder veils held in place with flower clusters and carried pastel pink and blue asters in colonial nosegays.
Two fellow returned members of the South Dakota national guard unit were the bridegroom’s attendants. They were Staff Sergeants Robert Johnson and Charles Showers of Mission Hill.
After a wedding dinner, which was served to immediate family members of the couple, S/Sgt. and Mrs. Lanctot left to spend a week at Lake Okoboji.
The bride and bridegroom were both graduated from Yankton high school with the class of 1939. Sgt. Lanctot has been in military service, two and a half years of which were spent in the Southwest Pacific theater of war. He returned recently on rotation, and early in September will report to Ft. Sam Houston, Texas, for reassignment.
