I saw this request at the Merced County message board at Ancestry.com:
"Marilyn Padula married Cecil Johnson on Nov 4 1945 in Los Banos, CA. Would you be so kind as to see if there was an item in either the Los Banos Enteprise or Merced Sun-Star? - Thank you."
I was unable to locate any articles in the Merced newspapers, but I found two articles in newspapers from the nearby area. I hope that you will find these useful:
