  • Notes 
    • Newspaper account of Betty Nuss's wedding:
      "Nuptial vows were exhanged by Miss Beatrice Elizabeth Nuss, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George K. Nuss, and Robert W. Campbell of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Campbell of Aurora Illinois at an 8:30 o'clock ceremony saturday evening [25 Apr 1936] at St. Paul's Episcopal Church.
      "The bride chose for her wedding the gown which her sister, Mrs. Dallas C. Wakeman, Jr. (Margaret Nuss) of Denver, Colo. wore at her wedding. It was of cafe au lait satin made with deep draped collar of rose point lace which was a part of her mother's wedding gown. The skirt was made with small inverted pleats stitched to the knees, flaring into fullness to form a train. The waistline was marked with a silk cord looped at the front and extending to the hemline. She wore a gold cross and chain, a family heirloom and carried a bouquet of calla lillies. Her finger tip veil of tulle fell from a small princess cap of rose point lace.
      "Miss Corine [sic] Campbell of Cedar Rapids, sister of the bridegroom, who was the maid of honor, and Miss Margaret Sundberg and Miss Dorothy Gray, both of Cedar Rapids,who were the bridesmaids, wore gowns made identically of lace. They were fashioned with long fitted skirts and were accompanied by matching jackets which buttoned down the back. Miss Campbell wore corn yellow, Miss Sandberg, peach and Miss Dorothy Gray, aquamarine. They wore wreaths of tiny French flowers in their hair and matching footwear. The bride and her attendants all are members of the Delta Delta Delta sorority."

      "Betty died on a Sunday morning in a Nursing home in Marion,Iowa. The immediate cause of death was pulmonary edema due to Metastatic Carcinoma of the breast and adeno carcinoma of the breast. She was buried in the Riverside cementary in Anamosa, Iowa. She was only 55 at the time of her death."
