60 years of mar­riage for Bob and Gwen

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NOT ev­ery cou­ple makes it through six decades of mar­riage, so Bob and Gwen Pott made sure they cel­e­brated the mo­men­tous an­niver­sary in style.

The pair, who are Mun­dowran prop­erty own­ers, cel­e­brated at the Bil­l­abong Mo­tel with a meal and the com­pany of fam­ily.

One of their sons, Dud­ley, said it was a night to re­mem­ber.

“A cel­e­bra­tion cake was cut and, adding more sig­nif­i­cance to the night, a clock was re­paired to work­ing or­der to mark the oc­ca­sion,” Dud­ley said.

“The clock was given as a wed­ding gift and (their other son) Gra­ham or­gan­ised it to be re­paired.

“It was a very special night, with most of the fam­ily able to at­tend, and Gwen and Bob so love when all the fam­ily come to­gether.”

Gwen and Bob were mar­ried at the Holy Name Catholic Church in Toowoomba on June 22, 1957 and a for­mal re­cep­tion fol­lowed at Neil St at­tended by fam­ily and many friends.

Their mar­ried life has been spent in the Eidsvold and Mun­dub­bera ar­eas, with the last 44 years re­sid­ing at their Mun­dowran prop­erty “Val­ley View” out­side Mun­dub­bera.

The pair en­joy catch­ing up with their fam­ily and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the fam­ily’s cat­tle prop­er­ties.

HAPPY AN­NIVER­SARY: Bob and Gwen Pott cel­e­brated their 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary at the Bil­l­abong Mo­tel with fam­ily and friends.
