NIEMEYER-MAXEY.

On Thursday morning at the cathedral Rev. Father McAuliffe united in marriage two favorite young people, Miss Cecelia Maxey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Maxey of Alameda street, and Atalus Niemeyer of Verdugo. Miss Eleanora Neimeyer (sic/Niemeyer), sister of the groom, was bridesmaid, and J. McGarry acted as best man. The bridal robe was cream cashmere trimmed with lace, with veil and wreath of orange blossoms. Instead of a bouquet she carried a prayer book. The bridesmaid was also attired in cream color. After the ceremony the bridal party and immediate friends were driven to the home of the bride's parents, where a wedding breakfast followed. The house was made beautiful by ferns and flowers, and the occasion was a joyful one.

At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the young couple, amid showers of rice, left for Coronado, and upon their return they will make their home at the bridegroom's ranch at Verdugo.

EARLY VINEYARD RANCHER PASSES
Funeral Services for Atalus Niemeyer in North Hollywood

Atalus Niemeyer, one of Southern California's pioneer vineyardists, died suddenly at the Queen of the Angels Hospital yesterday, following a brief illness. He was 74.

Born in Gutterman, [Guttenberg] Ia., Niemeyer was brought to Los Angeles by his parents when he was only 4 years old and had resided here ever since.

At one time he owned a large orange grove at what is now the intersection of 11th St. and Central Ave., and 35 years ago operated a 90-acre vineyard, which since has become the business section of North Hollywood.

For the past 10 years he and his widow [wife], Mrs. Louise S. Niemeyer, had lived on their Newhall ranch.

Niemeyer also leaves four sons, Dr. Leo Paul Niemeyer, Dr. T. Niemeyer, William E. Niemeyer and Zeno Niemeyer, and three daughters, Mrs. Lorenza Kelleher, Mrs. Vera Bennett, and Mrs. Marie Blankmeyer. All live in Southern California.

Rosary will be recited tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the McNamara Mortuary in North Hollywood. Requiem High Mass will be offered at St. Charles Church, North Hollywood, on Tuesday at 9 a.m., with interment following at Calvary Cemetery.
