My cousin Lois DeVeny married in 1951 after graduating from Purdue, along with her future husband. After this date nothing is known about her. Anyone have information?

Here's the announcement printed in an Indiana newspaper (near where the groom grew up):

Crawfordsville Journal Review 17-May-1951
