An American widow whose daughter and son-in-law were killed in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 was married Saturday in Lockerbie, the village where the plane fell and where the people were kind to her.
Marion Alderman, 63, of Camden, N.Y., married Edward Jablonski, 68, of Rome, N.Y., at All Saints Church in a ceremony attended by 20 in Lockerbie.
Town council member Hugh Young gave the bride away. He and his wife, Linda, were witnesses. ``We`re so happy,`` said Marion Alderman Jablonski. ``It was a beautiful ceremony and everyone has been wonderful.``
Her daughter, Paula, 29, and Paula`s British husband, Glenn Bouckley, were killed while flying home to New York after attending the wedding of Glenn Bouckley`s brother.
They were among 259 passengers who died when a terrorist bomb blew the Boeing 747 apart on Dec. 21, 1988. Eleven Lockerbie residents died on the ground.
``I first visited the town six months after the disaster and put a wooden cross in the golf course where my daughter`s body landed,`` Marion Jablonski said. ``The locals were very kind and considerate.``
Edward Jablonski, an electronics engineer, said the wedding was
``our way of paying tribute to the local people.``
