Marriage vows were spoken by Miss Esther Lucille Eschenbaum and Cpl. Myron H. Hagenlock at an eight-thirty ceremony preformed by Rev. J.P.

 A wedding dinner for the immediate families of the young couple and Vernon Bellack, a close friend of the bridegroom, was held at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr.  & Mrs. Wm. Eschenbaum.  Table decorations were carried out in a pink and white color scheme, and a wedding cake, topped by a miniature bride and groom centered the table. 

 The newlyweds plan to leave Saturday for Camp Picket, VA.  Clp. Hagenlock, who has formerly been stationed at Delmar, NC. Is home on furlough and has been transferred to the new location.

  Esther & Myron 1970's

" I had always wondered about my west coast relatives.  In 1994 during my last years in the Navy Reserves I was stationed at Oakland Naval Hospital for my reserve duty.  I took advantage of that time and visited with Esther and Myron enjoying each minute.  We spoke of things in South Dakota, went out to eat and met my cousins except for Vicki.   I fortunately went to Oakland a 2 years in a row, so was able to develop some sort of memories of them other then from their vacations back home.  Esther was interested in all and any news  sitting on the edge of her chair smiling, listening and asking questions.  I had brought my family films taken throughout the years which she watched glued to the screen.  I made a copy for her which she said she loved.  I had taped Grandma speaking of her memories of her kids.  When she said "Esther was the rebellious one!" there was this look on Esther's face....and she sat back and said..... "what did she say?"  Then she smiled. 

The last time I visited with Esther she was weak from her heart condition having had a couple of bypasses.  She spent most of the time resting in her bed with Myron watching over her.   I was very happy to have had the time with her and smile when I think of her."
