Di­a­mond cel­e­bra­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Gor­don and Lorna Rentsch of Hor­sham will cel­e­brate their 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary to­mor­row.

The cou­ple will mark the oc­ca­sion by go­ing out to din­ner with fam­ily this week­end.

Mr Rentsch, 82, and Mrs Rentsch, 84, agreed that one of the keys to their longterm part­ner­ship was to be good friends, talk any is­sues through and al­ways back each other.

“We’ve been very lucky health wise and ev­ery­thing has been ter­rific,” Mr Rentsch said. “We talk ev­ery­thing out. If we have an ar­gu­ment we get on with it quickly.”

The cou­ple has two chil­dren, Bruce and Jill, and a string of grand and great grand­chil­dren.

“We didn’t want a lot of fuss but our kids have taken over and or­gan­ised a din­ner to cel­e­brate with us,” Mrs Rentsch said.

Mr Rentsch was a plumber for 32 years and em­ployed with Pub­lic Works for 28, re­tir­ing at 75.

Mrs Rentsch worked at stock and sta­tion agency Dal­gety.

The cou­ple mar­ried at Hor­sham’s Wes­ley Methodist Church, now Wes­ley Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre, in 1959 and re­vealed that out of a friend group of five cou­ples they were the fourth to cel­e­brate their 60th or di­a­mond an­niver­sary.
