Text From Source: A wedding of interest took place at 7:30 o'clock last night in Trinity Methodist Church, when Alice Nelson became the bride of Alfred Edward Chase, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Chase, 310 Van Norman street. Rev. W. S. Reid officiated and the ceremony was witnessed by about twenty-five invited guests and a large number of friends of the young couple. A. F. Thornborough, organist of Trinity Church, played the Wedding March as the bridal party entered the church, the bride on the arm of her brother, J. H. Nelson, who gave her in marriage. The attendants were Miss Alice Adams, nurse in training at the Port Arthur General Hospital, of which the bride is a graduate, and Fenton Ross. The bride wore her travelling suit of navy blue tricotine, the coat opening over a blouse of peach shade georgette and hat of sand shade duvtyn with ribbon trimming in contrasting shades. She carried a shower bouquet of Ophelia roses. Miss Adams wore a gown of navy blue georgette crepe trimmed with silver and jet and large picture hat with French flowers. She carried a sheaf of pink carnations. During the signing of the register, H. Chase, brother of the groom, sang "Untill." At the conclusion of the ceremony the guests adjourned to the home of the bride's sister, Mr. and Mrs. D. M. Fisher, 315 Van Norman street, where wedding supper was served from a beautifully appointed bridal table, centered with the wedding cake, after which Mr. and Mrs. Chase left for a two week's honeymoon in the East. At the depot many friends gathered to offer their congratulations. Mr. Chase is employed with the Customs in Port Arthur and they will make their home for the present at 310 Van Norman street.

Text From Source: CHASE Ted (Edward) Nelson Chase, age 75 years, passed away after a sudden illness at Thunder Bay Regional Hospital (McKellar) on Wednesday, April 3, 2002. Born in Port Arthur April 22, 1926 he was schooled locally at St. James and Hillcrest High and remained a life-long resident of the area. He was a champion swimmer and actively involved in other sports and also in the community. He served in the Royal Canadian Navy in World War II. Afterward he was employed at the paper mill in Marathon, Port Arthur Shipyards, for the Singer Sewing Company, and for 35 years at Canada Customs until his retirement in 1989. In 1963 he was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses and he has since been actively sharing his faith with others. He married the former Anne Beverley Andrews on June 21, 1957 and they were looking forward to celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary this June. Together they enjoyed travelling extensively to New Zealand, Arizona and elsewhere. For thirty years they spent many happy times entertaining at their cottage on Cloud Lake and resided there for a few years after Ted's retirement. Ted is survived by his wife Anne; daughter Rebecca; sister Jean Chase; nieces Pam and Wendy and nephew David; as well as other family members out of town.
