|Mr. & Mrs. Smith|
|Minton United Church, August 10, 1935|

In the summer of 1935 Canada was as mired in the Great Depression as the United States. My grandmother was to be her sister's Matron of Honor two weeks later and couldn't afford a second dress or set of accessories, so she chose a pale blue dress and pink hat that would be appropriate for both occasions.
This description of the wedding was originally published in the Quebec Chronicle Telegraph but reprinted here in the Buckingham Press who's Editor and owner was my grandfather's uncle, Albert Hamilton Parker.
This was a summer of weddings for the Dean family; my great-uncle Kenneth Emery Dean and his bride Adah Bailey, were married on June 29th and my great-aunt Dorothy Irene Dean was married to Charles Leslie Copland on August 24th.
