Sheila C. Rice of Elkins and John R. Marshall of Cloudcroft, N.M., would like to announce their marriage, which took place on July 27, 2013, in the village of Cloudcroft, N.M.
John and Sheila were united in marriage by longtime Marshall family friend Judge Ted McCutcheon in the Sacramento Mountains Historical Society's Log Chapel built in 1899 by the El Paso and Northeastern Railroad. Participating in the ceremony were Timothy and Patrick Marshall, who handed John and Sheila their rings; Sara Erwin, who read a poem titled, "These Hands;" and Amanda Marshall, who attended the guest book. David and Mary Serna, friends of the Marshall family, hosted the wedding celebration at their home in High Rolls, N.M.
John and Sheila will spend a belated honeymoon in Ireland and England later this fall.
