Couple honored with bridal shower

Renee Deaton of Sanderson, bride-elect of Buck Jones of Wink, was honored with a bridal shower in the home of Norma and Ray Golden, of Pecos, on June 18.

Special guests joining the honoree was her mother, Pam Deaton of Sanderson, Liz Jones of Wink, mother of the groom-to-be, and Mary Bell Jones of Mentone and Betty Estey of Pecos, grandmothers of the groom-to-be. The honoree and special guests received lovely fresh flower corsages for the bridal courtesy.

A lovely array of gifts were opened by the bride-elect in the living room of the home and displayed on tables in the den.
