      «tab»The marriage of Miss Myrtle Roblin, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D.W. Roblin, of Carman, Man., to Philip Hammond took place quietly on Saturday, May 6, at the residence of the bride's parents. The ceremony was performed at high noon by the Rev. Mr. Wilson, of the Methodist Church, in the presence of the immediate friends and relatives of the bride and bridegroom. Promptly to the music of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, played by Miss. Grace Hammond, sister of the bridegroom, the bride entered, accompanied by her father. She wore a three-piece costume of French-blue faille, the coat opening over a bodice of maize georgette crepe, with touches of black and gold. Her bouquet was of bridal roses and lilies of the valley. Her only attendant was Miss. Beatrice Campbell wearing a dainty gown of white embroidered voile, which was brightened by her cluster of pink roses. The bridegroom was assisted by Mr. B. Trotter, of this city. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a pendant of pink cameos and pearls, a cameo ring to the bridesmaid, and gold cufflinks to the best man. After luncheon was served, Mr. And Mrs. Hammond, amid showers of confetti and good wishes, left for Winnipeg, where they will reside. [1]

  • Notes 
    • Edith (always known as Myrtle) was born and raised in Carman and lived with her family in the house that her uncle Sir Rodmond Roblin had built at 19 2«sup»nd«/sup» Avenue SW in Carman. She and her family are on the 1891 and 1901 censuses as living together in Dufferin Municipality. She moved to Winnipeg, probably about 1910, and was apparently living at 760 Broadway in 1914 as cards from her brothers in the army were addressed to her at that address. She attended Normal School (teachers training) in Winnipeg and taught school in the North End of Winnipeg. She married Philip Hammond in Carman in 1916 with the marriage and reception held on the lawn of the family house (some pictures survive). Philip and Myrtle moved into 502 Newman Street and later 1202 Wolseley Avenue.

      Myrtle was an excellent canoeist, generally with Philip, in her early years but was later renowned as a marvelous hostess and cook, and was particularly famous for her 'half a cup of coffee'. After the death of Philip in 1960, she moved to Park Towers Apartments (Apartment 6E - NW corner) on Portage Avenue West in 1961 and lived there until her death in Carman in 1967. Her daughter Ruth told the story that she suffered a heart attack while dancing on the lawn of the family home with her sister Bessie and cousin Olive. She died in the Carman Hospital.
