Life­time of ad­ven­ture binds Frank and Myrna to­gether

Southern Telegraph - - News - Ce­cilia Allen

A Port Kennedy cou­ple cel­e­brated their 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary last month, at­tribut­ing their ad­ven­tur­ous life­style as the key to a long and happy mar­riage.

Frank and Myrna Robin­son moved from South Africa to Port Kennedy in 2002.

They met in Eng­land, while Myrna was work­ing as a tele­phon­ist and Frank a tele­phone en­gi­neer.

“I bor­rowed a lit­tle bit of change to call a boyfriend and then I chased him un­til I paid him back,” Myrna said.

“He liked hik­ing and cy­cling, so we did that to­gether.

“I think why we’ve man­aged to stick to­gether is be­cause we’ve had an ad­ven­tur­ous life­style, we’ve had so many var­ied sit­u­a­tions that we’ve been in that’s what has kept us to­gether.”

The happy cou­ple mar­ried in their early 20s and have two chil­dren, Paul and Thalia, and four grand­chil­dren.

“We all lived in dif­fer­ent parts of South Africa at one stage and now we all live in Port Kennedy,” said Fred.

“It’s great hav­ing all the fam­ily just around the cor­ner.”

Port Kennedy cou­ple Fred and Myrna Robin­son cel­e­brated their 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary last month.
