Evening Post 28 December 1936
The Rev. H. E. K. Fry officiated at St. James''s Church, Lower Hutt, for the marriage of Kathleen Mary, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Hitch, to George, son of Mrs. and the late Mr. Chittick. The church was decorated by friends of the bride with roses and coloured hydrangeas. Mr. Ronald Horman was organist.
Magnolia satin, cut on classical lines, formed the frock of the bride, who was escorted by her father. A panel down the back of the frock finished in a slight train, and the high, frilled neckline was fastened in front with a posy of orange-blossom. The bride''s beautiful veil of Chantilly lace was held in place with a coronet of cream velvet rosebuds. She carried a bouquet of Christmas lilies, cream roses, pink carnations and maidenhair fern.
Miss Maisie Robertson and Miss Mabel Collett were bridesmaids, in frocks of gold taffetas finished in amber, and made slightly trained and with large puffed sleeves shirred to the shoulders. The flower girl, Alice Harrison, was in green shirred taffetas, also finished in amber. The bouquets were of pink roses and carnations.
Mr. John W. Chittick was best man, and Mr. Lewis August groomsman.
At the reception, which was held in the Horticultural Hall at Lower Hutt, the bride''s mother received the guests in an ensemble of floral silk with brown-toned coat and hat, and carrying a bouquet of gerberas and roses. The bridegroom''s mother was in navy blue floral marocain with navy accessories.
Later, the bride and groom left by car for the North, the bride travelling in royal blue satin-crepe worn with white accessories.

LEVIN, This Day.
An accident which resulted in the death of Mr. George William Chittick occurred on his farm at Heatherlea, Levin, on Thursday. The day was fine, but cold and windy, and as Mr. Chittick was behind with his hay harvest, he began cutting, using a tractor, to which was attached a mower. Owing to the chilly atmosphere, the deceased wore a heavy mackintosh. In the late afternoon he was found dead alongside the machine. No one saw the fatality, but what evidently had happened was that in some way the tail of his mackintosh had been caught in a bolt of a universal joint of the rod connecting the tractor with the mower, throwing Mr. Chittick from the driving seat, the back of his head striking the shaft. Death was apparently instantaneous. Mr. Chittick was a young man, 26 years of age, coming to Levin from Taita. He was married about two years ago to Miss Kathleen Hitch, of Lower Hutt.
An inquest was held before Mr. J. S. Moir, District Coroner, at Levin on Friday morning. In returning a verdict of accidental death, the Coroner said he wished to express, on behalf of the court, his sincerest sympathy with the bereaved wife and relatives. The funeral took place at the Taita Cemetery. One pathetic accompaniment to the death was the fact that Mr. Chittick''s mother arrived in Levin from Rotorua at about 7 o''clock the same evening to spent a holiday with her son and his wife.
