George Crane
of Tilton passed peacefully away at Carbonear Hospital on Tuesday, May 28, following an illness of only a few weeks. He was in his fifty-first year.
A bricklayer and cement finisher by trade, George was well known as a competent and faithful worker on many construction jobs in the province. He was ever industrious, and seldom could it be said of him, if ever, that he ate idle bread. He was indeed a worthy example to his seven sons and two daughters, all of whom loved him dearly. As a neighbour he was one of the best, and in the various phases of community life, George could always be depended upon to do his share. Such men cannot leave a community without being sorely missed.
His funeral, which was a large one, was held on Thursday afternoon to the Church of All Saints at Tilton, where the service was conducted by the Rev. E. Willis. The L.O.A., of which he was a member, attended.
Mourning their sad loss are his wife, seven sons, two daughters, two brothers and one sister, and to them we offer sincere sympathy.

Spaniard's Bay -
Drover - Butt Wedding

The marriage of Winnifred Lorraine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John E. Drover, of Spaniard's Bay to Wallace Morgan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Butt of ????? was solemnized in the Church of the Holy Redeemer, Spaniard's Bay on Friday, June 7 at 7 p.m. The ceremony was performed by the groom's uncle, the Rev. Donald Morgan, Curate of St. ????? Church, St. John's, assisted by the Rev. E. Willis. The senior choir was in attendance and sang "O Perfect Love" and during the signing of the register, appropriate music was played by Miss Carol Vokey.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a lovely gown of French lace over satin with shoulder-length veil; her bouquet consisted of pink and white carnations.
Maid of honour was the bride's sister Rosella and her bridesmaids were her cousin, Elizabeth Murrin, her sister Ruth, and the groom's sister Wanda. All wore gowns of pink nylon net with matching accessories. Attending the groom were Woodrow Normore as best man, and his brothers, Arthur and William Butt. Ushers were John C. Chipman and Clifford Brazill.
The Reception was held in the dining hall of Dawe's Restaurant, Bay Roberts, where about one hundred guests partook of the wedding supper, after which the usual toasts were honoured.
For her going-away the bride chose a woolen suit of coral with white accessories.
After the honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. Butt will take up residence here as the groom is the Conception Bay agent for frozen food distributor in St. John's. We wish them every happiness.
