The Goldendale Sentinel, Goldendale, WA., July 19, 1917, page 1


One of the charming weddings of the summer was that which made Miss Adria Bonebrake the wife of Mr. Francis J. Sleeper. The ceremony was performed at the home of the bride's parents, Dr. and Mrs. Allen Bonebrake, on Broadway, on Sunday, at twelve o'clock, the officiating clergyman being the Rev. Henry T. Greene, pastor of local Methodist Church.
The bride was beautifully gowned, and the gown was clad according to the decrees of custom. Dr. Bonebrake gave the bride away. The stately service of the church was used in its entirety. Beautiful cut flowers were everywhere in evidence.
Following the ceremony, the bride's bouquet was thrown by the bride, and caught by Miss Sylvia Masters. A delightful luncheon was served on the lawn.

Present were Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Flannery, Miss Ruth Flannery, Mr. and Mrs. Z.O. Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. N.B. Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Ahola, Rev. and Mrs. H.T. Greene, Bobbie Greene, Miss Eunice Coffield, Miss Sylvia Masters, Miss Gladys Lawson, Mr. G. Wells Cameron and Mr. H.F. Onthrop.

The bridal party drove to Maryhill, and took the afternoon train from there, beginning a trip which will take them to Portland, Seattle, Victoria, and other points of interest on the Northwest Coast.

Mrs. Sleeper is one of the most popular of the girls in the younger set. She has made Goldendale her home through all her life, except for the time spent in college. Mr. Sleeper was formerly principal in our High School. Host of friends and admirers offer their best wishes.
