(Marlene added these comments to this
picture of her parents.)
I believe this was mom & dad's "original"
They were married on August 20, 1945
at the register office in Horncastle, Lincoln.
She was 17 and he was 22.
When mom arrived in Canada,
her Romanian mother-in-law would not
accept her as dad's wife
until they had a church wedding
blessed by the priest.
At that time, they were living in my
grandparent's home in Windsor,
Ontario so they had to remarry in the
Romanian Church in August of 1946.
Grandma Ranchuck was finally happy!
