Di­a­mond from a dance

Wanneroo Times - - Opinion -

TAP­PING res­i­dents Ken­neth (85) and Pauline (79) Lee cel­e­brated their di­a­mond wed­ding an­niver­sary this month.

The cou­ple, who mar­ried on April 20, 1957, have lived in Pineview Vil­lage for about 14 years af­ter liv­ing in Green­wood for more than three decades.

Mrs Lee said they met at square danc­ing in 1954 and lived in Dianella for the first 14 years of their 60-year mar­riage.

While she was born and bred in WA, her hus­band’s fam­ily moved to Perth from Burma in 1947 fol­low­ing World War II.

Mrs Lee said high­lights of their mar­riage in­cluded six cruises to coun­tries such as Ja­pan and New Zealand, and a trip to Burma.

“That was the first time my hus­band had been back there,” she said.

They have four chil­dren – Ali­son, Stephen, Glenn and Jen­nine – and seven grand­chil­dren.

“Be­fore re­tir­ing my dad was a state man­ager for Jasco, a sta­tionery com­pany,” daugh­ter Jen­nine Eif­fler said.

Mr Lee had a stroke in Fe­bru­ary that has af­fected his mo­bil­ity.
