Today is Scott’s Mom and Dad’s 55th Wedding Anniversary. Jim and Cheryl are two of the most remarkable people I have ever met. I have known them for the past 31 years and I have always been amazed at the love they have for each other.
Scott has shared stories of his childhood and the precious memories their family made . Scott says that he has never heard his Mom and Dad argue or say an unkind word to each other. How many of us can say that about our parents? What a wonderful world we would live in if more people were like this. I’m not saying that it’s not healthy to disagree because that’s normal but respecting each other through turmoil takes strength.
When I first met Jim and Cheryl I was welcomed into the family with open arms. I soon found out that the Kimery’s surrounded their family and friends with laughter and love. We spent many a Friday or Saturday night around a campfire with the Karwandy’s, Balogh’s and the Kish’s enjoying their company and stories.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad, Scott, Nicholas, Kade and I are thankful for everything you teach us everyday. We love you!!!
I have included the wedding write up from the newspaper below. Author Unknown.
A pretty double-ring wedding was solemnized in the Highland Baptist Church, north of Kipling, on July 10th at 3:30 o’clock, when Cheryl Elaine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jensen, Kipling, became the bride of James Allan Kimery, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Kimery, Kipling. The ceremony was performed by Rev. L. Churchill.
The bride was radiant as she entered the church on the arm of her father to the strains of the wedding march. Her floor-length gown was of Chantilly lace over satin. The basque bodice featured a scoop neckline with pearl and sequin trim and lily-point sleeves. The full bouffant skirt highlighted at the back waistline by a garland of organza roses swept to the floor in a chapel train. A tiara crown held her shoulder length two-tiered veil of net, and she carried a cascade bouquet of pink roses with baby breath and ivy.
Mrs. Vernon Pusch, sister of the bride, was matron of honour, and was gowned in a cocktail length dress of white nylon over satin. Bridesmaids were Mrs. A. Kimery, sister-in-law of the groom, and Miss Patricia Ransom. They chose gowns similar to the matron of honour , with small rayon net flowered hats, wore mauve accessories and carried bouquets of single white mums, surrounded by lily of the valley.
The groom and his three attendants, Arthur Kimery, brother of the groom, Vernon Pusch and Lorne Olver, wore black suits and black bow ties. Ushers were Vern Pusch and Lorn Olver.
Mrs. C. Johanson, as soloist, sang the Wedding Prayer and the The Lord’s Prayer, accompanied by Mrs. C. Pearson on the piano.
For her daughter’s wedding, Mrs. Jensen chose a two piece champagne beige dress of silk surah and brocade, and wore a corsage of pink feathered carnations.
The groom’s mother was attired in an embroidered blue linen and rayon dress and wore a corsage of pink feathered carnations.
Mrs. Herb Parker, sister of the bride, chose a pink embroidered linen dress and white accessories.
Misses Karen Johanson and Meta Urban were in charge of the guest register.
A reception for 140 guests followed the ceremony and was served in the Recreation Centre, Kipling. The bride’s table was covered with a white linen cloth, centered with a beautifully decorated three-tiered wedding cake, banked in white tulle and pink rosebuds and flaked with white candles in crystal holders and vases of roses. Individual tables were centered with cut flowers in vases and the hall was tastefully decorated with mauve and white flowers and streamers.
Rev. L Churchill said grace and Mr. A Kimery read the telegrams. Mr. H. Smalley was master of ceremonies and Mr. P. Bird proposed the toast to the bride with the groom ably responding. A dance followed with lunch served at midnight to the guests.
For the going away, the bride was dressed in a yellow two-piece dress and wore a corsage of light pink roses. She wore white accessories. The young couple will reside in Kipling.
There were guests present from Winnipeg, Regina, Yarbo, Kennedy, Heward, Broadview, Grenfell, Corning, Windthorst and Kipling.
