Roderick Bruce Bailey, late of Trangie, died aged 90 years.
Roderick married Minnie Jane HILDER, daughter of Charles A. HILDER and Annie L. GORDON, on 3 Oct 1928 in All Saints' Church, Trangie, N.S.W., Australia 1. (Minnie Jane HILDER was born in 1903 in Narromine, New South Wales, Australia and died on 12 May 1997 in Trangie, New South Wales, Australia 4.)
A very pretty wedding was celebrated at All Saints' Church, Trangie, on Wednesday, 3rd inst., when Minnie Jane, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hilder, of the Commercial Hotel, was united in the holy bonds to Roderick Bruce, second eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. John Bailey, of Sydney, and formerly of Trangie. The Rev. K. D. Norman officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in a neat frock of white electric pleated georgette, with lace to match. She also wore a coronet of orange blossoms with veil. The bridesmaids were the bride's sister, Miss Daisy Hilder, and Miss Jinnie Bailey (sister of the bridegroom), the former wearing a pink three-tier electric pleated crepe de chine frock, whilst the latter was attired in pink crepe de chine and tulle skirt. Both wore hats to tone, and carried a posy of flowers. Mr. Eugene Kelly acted as best man, whilst Mr. Artwell Bailey, brother of the bridegroom, filled the position of groomsman. Immediately after the ceremony an adjournment was made to the Commercial Hotel, where the wedding breakfast was laid and a reception held. The bride's mother received the guests, attired in black electric pleated crepe de chine. After justice had been done to the many good things provided, and several toasts were honored, including the health of the young couple, they left by the evening mail train for the Mountains and Sydney, where the honeymoon will be spent. A large number of relatives and well-wishers were at the station to say good-bye. Their future home will be in Trangie." 5
