Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

years of wed­ded bliss has been cel­e­brated by Ray­mond and Edith Rogers of Glen­den­ning. Mt Druitt state La­bor MP Ed­mond Atalla paid trib­ute to the pair in par­lia­ment on May 7. The cou­ple met in 1949 while Mr Rogers was do­ing an air­craft en­gi­neer­ing course with the Royal Aus­tralian Navy in Scot­land. Less than two years later they were mar­ried and had their first child. De­spite a health set­back in 2006 with a poor prog­no­sis, Ray­mond’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to live for Edith saw him pull through. Ray­mond and Edith have five chil­dren, 10 grand­chil­dren and 14 great-grand­chil­dren.
