    • Pretty Church Wedding
      Dr. Ross H. Wing, Guelph, and Miss Eva Devitt, Waterloo, Married. To Reside in Guelph


      One of the most auspicious and prettiest weddings of the season which was marked by both simplicity and beauty was happily celebrated at the Methodist Church on Wednesday afternoon the occasion being the marriage of Miss Mary Evangeline (Eva) Devitt, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Menno Devitt, Waterloo, to Dr. Ross Hamilton Wing, D.D.S. of Guelph, son of Mrs. J. G. Wing of Winnipeg, Man., who returned from the front about a year ago, after serving for six months with the ambulance corps in France. The officiating clergyman was Rev. Geo. W. Barker, pastor of the Methodist Church, Burlington, an old and intimate friend of the bride's family. Ref. F. W. Mathers, B.D., pastor of the Waterloo church who was to have assisted was unable to be present. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Hildah Devitt as maid of honor and by Miss Bernice Roos, as bridesmaid. The groom was supported by his former school friend, Dr. (Captain) T. D. Campbell, D.D.S., of Dutton, Ont., who is home from the front on a short leave of absence. Messrs. E. Stanley Devitt, brother of the bride and Harley Hayes of Guelph acted as ushers. The bridal party and guests afterwards repaired to the bride's home, 90 Bellevue Ave., where a reception was held. Dr. and Mrs. Wing will reside at 5 Hillcrest Road, Guelph in which city Dr. Wing took over the dental practice of Dr. Foster about a year ago.
