Wedding Weddnesday - Clyde Robideau and Mabel Levi

    Clyde John Robideau married Mabel Dorothy Levi on Sept. 30, 1912 at St. Henry's church in Le Sueur, Minnesota.  Clyde Robideau is the oldest brother of my great grandmother Lulu (Robideau) Elsner which makes Clyde my great grand uncle. 

  The following newspaper clippings were published in The Princeton Union on Oct. 3, 1912:

      Clyde Robideau Weds.
  "Clyde J. Robideau, oldest son of
Mr. and Mrs. Nels Robideau of
Greenbush, and Miss Pearl Levi of
Le Sueur were married at St.
Henry's church, Le Sueur, on Mon-
day morning.  Rev. Vanderlanga
conducted the ceremony and cele-
brated the nuptial high mass.  Pat-
rick Hoey was best man and Miss
Myrtle Levi bridesmaid, while Miss
Vivian Lancaster, a niece of the
bride, acted as ring bearer.  Nelta
Fryeberg and Alice Grimshied, also
nieces of the bride, were flower girls.
Miss Elizabeth Fitzpatrick played
Lohengrin's wedding march and
Michael Hunt and Miss Fitzpatrick
sang, "Thou Art Always Mine."
  The bride was gowned in Roman

 net, trimmed with real Irish lace
                 over a costume of messaline satin
                 and carried American Beauty roses.
                 The bridesmaid's gown was of white
                 lace and she also carried roses.  Roses
                 and carnations were placed upon the
                 altar and the church was otherwise
                 prettily decorated.
                   A wedding repast followed the
                 ceremony at the home of the bride's
                 parents of which about 150 guests
                 partook, and a large number of use-
                 ful and costly gifts were bestowed
                 upon the happy young people.
                   On Tuesday Mr. and Mrs. Robideau
                 left for Edgerley, N. D., where the
                 groom holds a clerical position and
                 where they expect to make their
                 future home.
                   The Union joins the friends of
                 these popular young people in wish-
                 ing them happiness and prosperity
                                                                                            throughout life."

  The newspaper printed that Clyde married "Pearl" Levi, but I think this is a misprint. When I first saw it, I wondered who Pearl was because my research tells me that her name was Mabel.  And I have not found anything that indicates that her nickname was "Pearl".
