Mary Delivers


From the Reading Eagle on this day in 1946:

Awaits Easter Reunion With English Bride

Kenneth C. Wickel, of 1018 Green St., who was recently discharged from the army as a sergeant, is awaiting the arrival of his English wife, the former Tilly Hyatt, of Hanley, Stoke on Trent, a passenger on the Queen Mary.

The ship is expected to dock in New York tomorrow. Wickel, who was in the service 42 months, met his wife while he was stationed in Staffordshire with the air corps. They were married on June 10, 1944.

A son, Kenneth William, 14 months old, is making the trip with his mother. Wickel, who is employed by a Penn Street store as a baker, will be in New York to meet them. He lives with his mother at the Green Street address.
