CORINTH GIRL WEDS ALABAMA MERCHANT HERE
(Sent for submission in Family Branches by Vickie Clark.)
Of unusual interest to Corinth people was the marriage on Tuesday evening
August 23rd, of Miss Falla Richardson of this city to Mr.
A.Z. Bailey of Decatur, Alabama.
The bride is a Corinth girl, known and loved by all, her rendition of
religious service in various departments of the work in the Methodist church
here and at other assignments being well known. She is a graduate of the
Corinth High School, and also a graduate of the Scarritt Bible and Training
School. For several years she had been a deaconess in the Methodist church
and has served with distinction as pastor’s assistant in the First Methodist
Church of this city.
During the past year or more she has been superintendent of community
work for Albany-Decatur, Alabama, and has only recently returned from a
recreation and vacation trip to Manitou, Colorado.
The groom is a man of strong character, a Christian and a member of the
Central Methodist Church of Decatur, and a prominent and successful business
man of that city.
Doubtless the announcement of her marriage will be a surprise to many of
her friends in Corinth, for only a very few knew she was in the city. The
ceremony was read by Presiding Elder Rev. E.H. Cunningham, the
beautiful and impressive rings ceremony being used. The wedding took place
at the home of Mrs. A.H. Patrick on Fillmore Street, with only
members of the family present.
Mr. and Mrs. Bailey left on the Memphis Special east at 10:18, and
will be at home at 608 Gordon Drive, Decatur, Alabama.
