Event Wedding
History Dress worn by Lucile Hile for her November 1, 1936 wedding. Lucile married Clyde Noyes at the home of her parents in Franklin, Nebraska. Thirty-Five people attended. The improvised altar was decorated with greenery, ferns, and baskets of chrysanthemums and lighted with a candelabra. The bride carried a bouquet of talisman roses. Her attendant was her sister, Mrs. LaVenia Webster, who wore a floor length gown of wine velvet and carried pink roses and white chrysanthemums. The best man was Edward Noyes, brother of the groom. The ceremony was followed by a luncheon.

Clyde and Lucile were graduates of the University of Nebraska. They met in the fall of 1931 at a mixer at the Ag College.

After the wedding, the couple honeymooned in Colorado. The bride's traveling outfit was a brown crepe dress and gold colored coat with brown accessories. They made their home in Benkelman, NE where Clyde was an extension agent. In 1938, they moved to McCook where Clyde worked as an extension agent. In 1948 moved to Lincoln, where Clyde worked at the University of Nebraska Agriculture College.
