The Perkins Journal Thursday, August 11, 1977.9 32 yem old satin we(t(00ling dress is serving Cun,:fiff family well Merilyn [CundifJ]Duncan-August. 1977 A white slipper satin dress made 32 years ago in Australia, will be the wedding attire for the mariage of Merilyn Cundiff, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Cundiff. The wedding vows are being solemnized tonight (Wednesday) at the First Baptist Church in Perkins. As Merilyn becomes the bride of Mr. Chester Duncan this evening, she will be the second Cundiff daughter to have worn the dress, and the fourth to have been married in the satin gown. The dress was made for the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Cundiff on January 31, 1945, at Melbourne, Australia. Nelson was stationed in the United States Army and took an Australian girl Meryl Pchies, as his bride. An aunt, Mrs. V, Currie, designed and made the wedding gown. After the wedding Nelson returned to the United States, and Mrs. Cundiff followed in 1946. The dress was put away, and on February 21, 1961, a niece, Susie Cundiff, asked to wear the dress to exchange wedding vows with Billy Mote, and became the second to be married in the wedding gown. On October 21, 1965, the Cundiff's first daughter, Judy, wore the dress in the ceremony that united her in marriage with Frank Spillars. Tonight marks the fourth occasion. Mrs. Cundiff reports that other than tucking and resewing slightly here and there, the dress has served all four brides without any major alterations. The dress--well, it is going back into storage perhaps for the weddings of future generations. Judy [Cundif3q Spillars-Oct. 1965 Mrs. Meryl Cund(ff-Jan. 1945 + '.,.
